15g Lingzhi Mushroom
20g Longan Fruit
10 pieces Red Dates
A little Salt
2 teaspoons Ginger Liquer
2000ml  Water
600g Spare Ribs

2 slices Fresh Ginger



1. Scald the spareribs with boiling water and remove them.

2. Put the spareribs into a pot along with all ingredients.

3. Bring to boil and then turn down the fire to simmer for 1 hour.

4. Add salt to taste.



• For enhanced effectiveness, the amount of Lingzhi can be doubled. However, the bitter taste will be prominent. Chinese Wolfberries can be used to absorb some of the bitterness of Lingzhi.
