1. Wash the pork ribs, immerse in hot boiling water for 5 minutes. Discard the water.

2. Put all ingredients (except salt) in the pressure cooker. I am using 4.5L WMF Perfect Pro pressure cooker.

3. Close with the cover and set the knob to 2.

4. Use medium heat until the cooking indicator rises to the 2nd orange ring.

5. Reduce heat to low and let it cook for 30 minutes.

6. When the cooking is over, turn off the heat. Wait till the indicator (orange ring) go down or turn the knob to lock/ unlock to release pressure. When there's no more pressure, unlock and open the cover. The soup is ready by now.

7. Optional: Add salt to taste, if using. Repeat step 3 - step 5, cook for 10 minutes. 

8. Repeat step 6 or just leave it covered and serve later. The remaining heat will further enhance the flavour of the soup.
