In Traditional Chinese Medicine we believe some foods are 'blood builders' which make them ideal for certain body types, situations and times of year. With that theory in mind this soup is the ultimate "blood builder" to nourish and support you during the Fall & Winter seasons. It's no wonder we intuitively crave certain foods as the temperatures start to dip. This soup is famously easy to make and absolutely delicious.
If you're going to consume meat please make sure your meat has been pasture raised and finished. I purchase through Moink (click here for $20 off) and love it. Any boneless cut will do for this recipe. You can also use stew meat as it will become tender with the lengthy simmer time.
