Spare Ribs and Lotus Soup

Soups and Congees

Spare Ribs and Lotus Soup
2 sections lotus rhizomes, peeled and chopped, then soaked in cold water
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds spare ribs, bones discarded, meat separated and cut into small pieces
5 slices fresh ginger

1. Put lotus pieces in a large bowl, sprinkle on the salt and shake the bowl to evenly distribute the salt; then allow it to rest for ten minutes.
2. Then heat a wok or deep pan, add the oil, and stir-fry the meat and the ginger until the meat is no longer pink.
3. Transfer pork and ginger to a stockpot. Rinse the pieces of lotus root and add to a large stockpot. Add four cups of water or cover all ingredients with this or more water, as needed.
4. Cover and bring the wok or pot to the boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer for forty minutes or more until the lotus pieces are soft.
5. Blend a pinch more salt, if needed, then pour this into a pre-heated soup bowl, and serve.
