Why six treasure? Well, it’s because there’s six more nutritious ingredients in the soup besides pork ribs. And all of them have their important indivdual health value. Asian way of cooking soup is actually very easy, just dump everything into a pot of boiling water and cook for at least ½  – 1 hr and it’s done. Although some soup requires longer hours, depending on the type of soup.
