Chinese soups are nutritious, soothing, and comforting to drink.

This is what Cantonese moms & wives are known for!

Asian cultures are generally more reserved when it comes to showing affections to our loved ones (especially family).

You wouldn’t be surprised to find many likely couldn’t recall the last time they said “I love you” face to face to their moms or dads, daughters or sons.

But we do show our affections and appreciations in other ways.

For my mom, it’s Chinese soups.

Not only because it’s healthy, soothing, & comforting, but flavorful Cantonese soups traditionally takes hours and hours to make.

Mom, thank you for your care, patience, & love for us! 🙂

Carefully open the lid and heat up the pressure cooker to bring the bone soup back to a full boil. Let the soup boil for an extra 10 – 15 minutes.

*Pro Tip 1: Due to the nature of pressure cooking, the initial soup will not taste the same as the traditional Chinese soups cooked on stovetop. So, it’s very important to boil the soup for an extra 15 – 20 mins to add body to the soup.

Add salt to taste.

*Pro Tip 2: Make sure to add in the salt slowly and keep tasting. Do not over season. For reference: We added roughly 1 ½ teaspoon of fine table salt.

Step 5
Serve Chinese Pressure Cooker Pork Bone Soup

Hello there,

What kind of dried dates are you using for these soups? Red Dates? Honey dates? Would LOVE to see more of these “slow simmer” soups that can be made in Instapot!

Thanks.

Hi, I just finished the pressure cook 30 mins and waited for another 15mins, but when I tried to release the steam handle to venting, the soup just spread. I tried again and same thing happened. I followed the exact instructions and not sure why or what cause it. Do I have to wait until the valve drops down naturally? Please help!

Is there a reason why you don’t add salt at the beginning? I have a recipe where I seasoned my pork bone for several days. Can I still pressure cook the way you do with this soup?

Hi there

You recommend to boil the soup for an extra 15 – 20 minutes.
Which one is better?
Cook on stove or continue to use Instant Pot (change to Saute normal).

Thank You

Hi here

Is it safe to use the Sautéed function with the lid closed when boiling additional 15 minutes for the soup?

Thanks again5 stars

Just bought myself a pressure cooker. Yet to try using it but looking forward. I see that your cooker has some functions like stew, bone soup, etc. Do you use those functions? Also, in what way will the soup taste differently from stove cooking? Is the flavour not strong enough?

Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

Is there a difference between using pork neck bones vs pork leg bones etc? Thanks

Hi Charlene,

thank you for your question 🙂

The meat on pork neck bones tend to be more tender than pork leg bones!

Take care & have fun cooking

Hi,

Just wondering instead of quick release you mean natural release? Also if it is quick release will the soup splatter everywhere once the valve is turned from sealing to venting?

Thanks,

I didn’t grow up with a Cantonese mum, but this definitely brings back memories of wandering through Wellcome and seeing the pre packaged soup ingredients that I never knew what to do with. Wish I had an Instant Pot and you guys back then!
