You don’t need to have a pressure cooker to make this.

Cut off some pork fat from the ribs and let it render in a deep pan.

Once the oil is drawn out, braise the pork ribs until they’re golden brown.

Meanwhile, slice 3/4 of the spring onion and add it to the pan and let it panfry with the pork ribs.

Once golden brown, pour the water in. Add chunky slices of daikon (may be substituted with radishes).

FINISH: A) Let it simmer for about 30 minutes and enjoy. B) Pressure cook it or gas stove it on a low simmer for 3+ hours.
