Chinese Homemade Watercress and Fish Ball Soup

My mom made this soup while I was growing up, plus I tweaked it here and there from other people who make soup. Wonderful flavor. You’ll like this simple soup recipe.



Step: 1

Place pork chops in a stockpot and pour in enough water to cover. Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat and rinse any residue on pork chops with cold water.

Step: 2

Return pork chops to stockpot and pour in enough cold water to take up twice the space as the pork chops. Bring water to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 3 hours.

Step: 3

Place dates in a bowl and pour in enough water to cover; soak for 5 minutes. Drain.

Step: 4

Stir dates and ginger into the stockpot; add watercress and fish balls and simmer for 10 minutes. Skim off any scum from the top of the soup; season with salt.
