Roast Pork Soup with Chinese Herbs


I have posted a recipe for Pork Soup with Ling Zhi and Chinese herbs before. But the focus of that post was on Ganoderma Lucidum or Ling Zhi and its anti-cancer properties. This time around, I want to present the other ingredients which are also very nutritious. Chinese herbs are known to have medicinal properties, if not for treating illness, herbs can be used for maintaining wellness.









Chinese Wolfberry
or
Gou Qi Zi




Qi Zi has been renowned in Chinese herbal cooking for its potent tonic and aphrodisiac properties. It is used for treatment of general weakness and impotence. This is my mother-in-law's favorite herb because she believes this not only increases our stamina, but also nourishes and brightens the eyes, strengthens our lungs and nourishes our liver and kidneys. It is mildly sweet. This 'neutral' herb can be added to a variety of soups without affecting the taste or smell.







Chinese Red Dates
or
Hong Zao




Red Dates are considered a tonic for the spleen and stomach, so this herb is used for improving digestion. It also increases available energy, so it goes very well when added with Qi Zi. Red dates are known to be effective in countering fatigue, anaemia and low energy. They are commonly used for building up strength and blood. It has a naturally sweet taste.

Red dates can be made into teas; or added to chinese wine and kept for a long time to enhance the flavor of wine. This wine is good for drinking or it can be used to flavor dishes.









Chinese Wild Yam
or
Huai Shan




This is one of the children's favorite Chinese herbs. It is crunchy even when cooked and simmered for a long time. Wild yam is known for enhancing the immune response, so it a good herb for the whole family. Recently, I found out that it also boosts hormone production so it benefits women greatly when taken during mentruation, or menopause and for those who needs to boost their fertility. It can also relive morning sickness.


We had some leftover Lechon or roast pork. The meat, we can make into Paksiw ( a stew made with vinegar and the Lechon sauce). But the bones from ribs and legs parts are also tasty as well. What better way to 'recycle' them but to cook them in soup!

around 1 kilo roast pork bones with some meat

a handful of Chinese wolfberry or Qi Zi
4 -5 pcs red dates or Hong Zao
5 pcs Chinese wild yam or Huai Shan

10 C water
salt and pepper to taste

1. Boil the water in a pot. When it boils, add in all the ingredients.

2. Simmer for 2 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

Or alternately, just throw everything in the crockpot or slow cooker in the morning. When you come back for dinner, you already have a nice, hot, nourishing soup waiting for you!




This warm, nourishing soup filled with the goodness of Chinese herbs is submitted to Weekend Herb Blogging, a foodie event featuring herbs and unique plant ingredients around the world. This event was launched by Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen. This week's host is Simona of the Italian Briciole. Please check out the delicious round-up last week done by Pam of Sidewalk Shoes.

Wow! All the ingredients sound precious for the body. Thanks for a very informative post.

Kalyn said...

Very interesting information about the Chinese herbs. When I went to China I was fascinated by the herbal shops where you go in, they look in your eyes and tell you what herbs you need to take!

Soli Deo Gloria said...

Simona, you've done a wonderful round-up!

Kalyn, that's true, the herbalists can tell from your eyes, sometimes from your eyelids (yes, they request you to show them your eyelids) what kind of sickness or deficiency you have and prescribe the appropriate herbs! They say that this knowledge is handed down from many years of experience.

The herbal supplements contained in herbal levitra erection pills are from natural sources and you don't need a prescription before you can use it because herbal levitra erection pills are Doctor approved as safe for use and they have no known negative side effects to your health. http://www.besthealthmed.com/herbal_levitra.html

kevin said...

After obtaining a prescription of medicine to treat erectile dysfunction such as viagra or Cialis from the doctor, you need to find out a suitable pharmacy that sells authentic Viagra. However, you can also buy Viagra online straight from your home just by logging into http://www.pill-care.com and ordering Viagra online. Buy Viagra from this online drug store; administer the medicine properly in accordance with the instructions of the doctor and ensure success in your war against erectile dysfunction.

People fail in accelerating weight loss due to various reasons such as the lack of a well-managed dieting schedule and also for not practicing physical exercises regularly. Altogether, if you are not aware of comprehensive weight loss information, including weight loss tips, it is also likely to slacken your weight loss regimen and as such you should instantly visit the site http://www.weight-loss-truths.com and enhance your knowledge on various weight loss details before starting off your anti-obesity regimen.

The chances of contracting erectile dysfunction goes up substantially with age, increasing significantly above the age of sixty-five-which is rapidly approaching for the baby boomers. Although erectile dysfunction becomes more likely with advancing age, there is certainly no age cutoff for a sexually fulfilling life. Some men enjoy sexual activity even in their eighties and nineties. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com

Generic Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.

I went to an online pharmacy a month ago to Buy Lipitor
, Lipitor (Atorvastatin) is an oral drug that lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood.
Hydrocodone Online
is one of the most commonly abused prescription pain medications today. One of the most widely prescribed medications, Cheap Vicodin
and its related medications, loricet, loritab percodan, and oxycontin are opioid-based pain medications. Cheap Hydrocodone
is a derivative of opium, which is also used to manufacture heroin. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction become deeply depressed, and their thinking, attention, and judgement become impaired. Their thoughts dwell on the next high, although they tell themselves they are still taking Vicodin for pain or to avoid the withdrawal symptoms. Individuals with a Vicodin addiction often truly feel physical pain, but it is psychologically produced.

Generic Cialis is consumed orally and has quickly become one of the most prescribed medications. Generic Levitra has been clinically proven to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes

Erectile Dysfunction FAQ's

Impotence, or penile erectile dysfunction, in men is not as rare as one would think it is.
In fact, one out of ten men around the world is affected by this condition. It is not exclusive to old men either. Impotence is caused not just by physical factors,
but mental factors as well.
Exercising on a regular basis and eating healthy food will increase your ability to sustain prolonged physical effort and we all know that sex is effort.
Smoking, frequently drinking large quantities of alcohol, taking recreational drugs and lack of exercising will sap your stamina and also slow down the flow of blood.
Penis exercises can be used for maintaining fitness, preventing or controlling premature ejaculation and increasing the length and girth of the penis.
by penis enlargement pills you can overcome these problems and not only that you can also enlarge, extend also to strengthen your penis and premature ejaculation will not exist anymore for you.
