I make at least one pot of soup every week.  My mother has always done the same, and I have grown up with this soup.
You may substitute pork with any meat on the bone.



  • 1kg pork neck with the bone ( purchased at a Chinese butcher; rinse and wash before use)
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • Lotus root – frozen from the Chinese supermarket
  • Corn cob x 4 ( you can cut some of the corn off the cob and also throw in the cob)
  • 4x small potatoes
  • 2 handfuls of goji berries ( this will darken and sweeten the soup. This Chinese herb helps build the blood and is great for the eyes)



  • Place all ingredients into an automatic pressure cooker, one like Breville, and cover the ingredients with water.
  • Place on pressure cook for 30 mins.


Another variation to this soup:

  • Bring to the boil carrots, corn cobbs, ginger and pork neck bone.
  • Add Salt.
  • When boiled, add 1 bunch of watercress.
  • Simmer for one hour.

This is a very detoxifying soup version of the soup.
