Impressive but easy Bakuteh

This post is mainly for Paul's benefit because I know he misses good home-cooked Chinese food.

So in this post I shall demonstrate one of the impressive but easiest chinese dishes to make: Bakuteh!

First put a pot of about 5-7 bowls of water to boil

Make sure you have the secret ingredient: a packet of bakuteh herbs from the local Chinese grocer

Lots of whole cloves of garlic (I like to put them in unpeeled... more rustic)

About 600-700 grams of pork ribs

Other optional things to add in can be tofu, pork balls etc...

Just dump everything in and boil for about 40 minutes or until the meat is tender. Then add salt, pepper to taste, and a bit of black soy sauce for colour
