6 servings


  • 1 lemon
  • 2 artichokes with stalks intact
  • 1 pound pork ribs, chopped into 2 cm pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 1/2 cups water


Fill a large mixing bowl with cold water and add a squeeze of lemon juice. 

Slice the artichoke stalks into 1 1/2-inch pieces then cut the artichokes into quarters, removing the leaf ends any fuzzy parts. Immediately submerge the artichokes into the cold water to prevent it from going black. 

In a large pot, add pork ribs, artichokes, fish sauce, sugar, salt, pepper and water. Bring to a boil then skim off any impurities for 10 minutes. 

Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover with a lid. Simmer for 45 minutes.

Cook's Note

Always use a stainless steel knife and submerge sliced artichokes in cold acidulated water to prevent the artichoke turning black.
