Course: Dinner, Lunch, Side Dish
Cuisine: Asian, Chinese
Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 3 hrs 30 mins
Total Time: 3 hrs 55 mins


  • 500 g pork ribs
  • 2 to 3 dried scallops, washed
  • 15 red dates, washed
  • 1 white radish, peeled, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 green radish, peeled, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 2 carrots, peeled, cut into bite-size chunks
  • Enough chicken stock or water
  • Salt, to taste


  • In a small saucepan, bring water to boil and parboil the pork ribs for a few minutes to remove scum and grit.  Discard the water, and wash well.
  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker.  Pour in chicken stock or water until just enough to immerse all the ingredients. Cook on Auto or High setting for at least 4 hours.  If cooking in a deep pot, bring all the ingredients in stock or water to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer for at least 3 hours, or longer, or until meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. Season to taste. Serve hot or warm.
