🍲🍚🚓This simple dish is called Wheel Soup or Telephone Dial Soup (aka Lotus Soup, as it looks like lil wheels/telephone dials after slicing them) ☎Ingredients☎
·1 dried cuttlefish / dried squid
8 cups water + some for blanching (2.4 liters)
1 lb beef or pork neck bones or bone-in ribs (450g)
6 red dates (rinsed and soaked for 15 mins)
Lotus root (peeled and cut into 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick slices
1 packet of mushrooms
1carrot sliced 1/2 inch thick
1tbsp of Kay chi (wolfberries)
Salt to taste
Wipe dried cuttlefish (squid) with a damp towel. Slice thinly. Dry fry.
Remove and set aside.
Fill a pot half full of water.
(The level should just about cover the meat) Bring to a boil.
Add beef/pork bones or ribs. Allow it to blanch for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove with thongs and rinse in cold water.
Discard water in pot and fill with 8 cups of fresh water. Bring to a boil.
Add blanched neck bones /ribs/ broiled cuttlefish, red dates, kay chi, carrots and lotus root. Bring water back up to a boil.
Add your mushrooms. Reduce heat to low and allow soup to simmer for 1½ to 2 hours. Skim off any scum appearing on the surface.
Season with salt to taste and turn off heat.
Note: if you don't enjoy pork or beef, you may just use half a chicken. Cut them up into 6 pieces (set aside the breast for another dish. Just use the bony parts of your chicken) clean your chicken and boil, and remove scum. Then continue the cooking process.
