Pressure Cooker Pork Shank Carrots Soup 青紅蘿蔔豬腱湯
8 ingredients + 10 mins prep to make this healthy Pressure Cooker Pork Shank Carrots Soup Recipe 青紅蘿蔔豬腱湯! Comforting homemade Chinese soup that is super easy to make.

Cuisine: Chinese
Serving: 2 - 4
  • 2 large carrots, roughly chopped (roughly 1 ½ pound / 680 grams)
  • 1 large green radish, roughly chopped (roughly 1 ¾ pound / 800 grams)
  • 1 pork shank (roughly 1 ½ pound / 680 grams)
  • 4 quarts of cold running tap water (4 liters)
  • 1 thin slice of ginger
  • 2 dried dates 蜜棗
  • 1 small piece of chenpi 陳皮 (dried mandarin peel)
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. Clean the Pork Shank: Bring 2L of water to a boil. Then, boil the pork shank for 3 minutes to clean and remove the excess fat. Remove the pork shank and rinse it in cold tap water. We take this step whenever we make Chinese soups with pork shank or any other bones and meat.
  2. Prepare the Ingredients: Soak 1 small piece of chenpi in cold water for 20 minutes. Wash the dried dates with cold running tap water. Prepare the rest of the ingredients as listed.
  3. Pressure Cook the Soup: Place all the ingredients into the pressure cooker. Pour 2L of cold running tap water into the pot. Do not add any salt. Close the pressure cooker’s lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and fully Natural Release (roughly 20 – 25 minutes).
  4. Seasoning: Carefully open the lid and heat up the pressure cooker to bring the soup back to a full boil. Let the soup boil for an extra 20 - 30 minutes to add body & thickness to the soup. Add sea salt to taste. (Make sure to add in the salt slowly and keep tasting. Do not over season.) For reference: We added roughly 1 ¼ tablespoon of fine sea salt.
  5. Serve: Serve hot. Enjoy~
