Pork Ribs with Small Bean soup

I seldom post soup recipes because the ingredients always disappears or break into very small pieces after 2 hours of boiling it, or I always forgotten to snap a picture of it before dinner...

38g small red beans (赤小豆)
38g fox nuts (芡实)
38g chinese barley ( 薏仁)
300g loin pork bone
1 green radish (about 225g)
2 carrot (about 225g)

1. Rinse pork bone. Scald in boiling water for 3 min.

2. Rinse small red beans, fox nuts and Chinese barley. Soak them in water for 30 min.

3. Rinse and remove skin of green radish, carrot. Cut into pieces.

4. Put all ingredients into a pot. Add about 2 litre water. Bring to the boil. Reduce to low heat and cook for 2 hours. Serve.

It benefits the Spleen and the eyes; expels Dampness; protects the Liver; lightly nourishes and supplies nutrients to the body; improves skin texture.
