Watercress was on offer at our local supermarket and I bought 2 bundles. We don't like the stalk so I usually cook it with the meat first, dish out the stalks 1 hour later and throw in the leafy portion to cook for another hour.
500g pork ribs/lean meat
2 litres water
15 - 20 red dates (红枣)
salt to taste (optional)
- Blanch pork ribs/lean meat.
- Bring 2 litres of water to boil and add all ingredients in a pot. Using medium fire, bring water to boil again, reduce to small flame and simmer for 2 hours.
