  2. Once the soup boils, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 1 to 1.5 hours.

Tips:

Remove impurities from the ribs more effectively by adding them to the pot of water just before it boils. Once the water boils, continue boiling for about 3 minutes then rinse the ribs before adding them to the soup. Add more Dang Gui herbs if you prefer a stronger herbal taste.
