You will need to go to your local butcher shop and get some pork neck bone. They are very cheap usually less than $2 per pound. I usually get 2 pieces and have the butcher chop them up into approx. 1 inch pieces. The rest of the ingredients are the following.

  • Pork neck bone (3 pounds)
  • Fresh ginger slices (4 or 5)
  • Half a white turnip
  • 3 Carrots
  • Salt
  • Sesame oil
  • Soy sauce

How to Make It

  • Put neck bones in a large pot and fill with water.
  • Add ginger and salt
  • Bring to boil and then turn down to low heat
  • Skim off the oil on top of boiling pot and discard.
  • Cook for approx. 2 hours
  • Peel turnip and carrots and slice to 1/2 inches thick chunks.
  • Add turnip and carrots to the pot at the last 20 minutes of cooking.

How to Serve

Place some sesame oil and soy sauce on a plate. Dip the bone (meat) in sauce and enjoy. The soup is a clear white broth that contains lots of calcium. Very good natural supplement for old age.


This recipe is so simple and it is very economical. Total cost is less than $7 for 4 servings. You'll be surprised by the amount of meat in the bone. The meat will come off the bone so easily due to the slow cook process. Like Martha Stewart said "It's a good thing."
