About this recipe: This soup is very popular in China. Pork spare ribs are simmered with seaweed, winter melon, ginger, spring onions, star anise and cooking wine. Enjoy as is or alongside rice, if desired.
Dried seaweed and winter melon can be purchased in Chinese/Oriental speciality shops. If winter melon is unavailable, substitute in bitter melon; simply salt for 30 minutes before using.
