Pork Bones & Arrowroot Soup

duration120 mins


  • 1 pound fresh pork bones
  • 2 large arrow roots
  • 3 large dates dried
  • 5-6 pieces dried scallop
  • 1 tsp salt to marinate pork bones


  1. Mix salt and pork bones together and let sit in a bag for at least an hour (best overnight).
  2. Wash the pork bones thoroughly in cool running water. Start boiling your water soup and add the dried dates and scallops.
  3. In a separate pot, blanch the pork bones and strain it to remove any dirt and debris from the blanching.
  4. Add the pork bones and chopped arrowroot to the boiling water of your soup. Boil together for at least 60-90 minutes on high heat. The longer you boil it, the tastier the soup. It is best eaten when the pork is falling off the bones.
