Watch how to make this recipe.

In a mixing bowl, rub the pork ribs with salt. 

In a large pot, bring 2 quarts of water to the boil. 

In a medium-size clay pot, add the ginseng, lotus seeds, goji berries, black prune, lilly petals, longon, white vegetable root, pearl barley, and raisins, followed by the pork ribs. 

Pour water in the clay pot until it reaches 2-inches above the level of the pork, about 1 1/2 to 2 cups water. 

With the lid on, carefully place the enclosed clay pot into the simmering water making sure the hot water is level with the top of the clay pot. Put the lid on and simmer for 3 hours. 

Carefully remove the clay pot from the simmering water and serve with steamed jasmine rice.
