Pork Shank Soup with Apple and Pear
Sabrina MOK - Accredited Practising Dietitian (Australia), Member of HKDA, said "Pork shank, as an ingredient, contains less fat than pork bones and is thus a healthier ingredient. Apples and pears contain dietary fibre that helps to promote bowel health."
Ingredients (Serve 4):
|Pork shank||4 taels|
|Dried fig||3 slices|
|Apricot kernels,sweet and bitter||10|
|1.||Blanch the pork shank. Remove grease. Put it back into water and simmer for 2.5 hours with the dried fig, loquat leaves and apricot kernels.|
|2.||Core the pear and apple. Put them into the pork shank soup and simmer for another 45 minutes.|
|3.||Add salt and sugar to taste.|
