Bak-Kut-Teh (Hokkien) is a delicacy popular in Southeast Asia, particularly in Malaysia and Singapore. It is a soup made from meat and bones combined with various Chinese herbs and spices. The soup itself does not contain any tea leaves (Teh) , but because people usually drink some tea while eating, thus it is generally called Bak-Kut-Teh.
Ingredients: Chinese angelica, Asiabell root, Solomon's seal, licorice, chuanxiong, goji berries, Rehmannia, black dates, secret spice sachet.
Each packet serves 3 person for two meals. First, prepare some meat, 1 whole bulb of garlic, clean the herbal ingredients inside the packet and put them in a large pot. Fill the pot with water and bring it to boil. Once boiling, turn to low heat and simmer for 1-2 hours. Add some salt and soy sauce to taste before serving.
Vegetarians can choose mushrooms, corn and other ingredients instead of meat.
肉骨茶Bak-Kut-Teh (闽南语) 是一种流行於东南亚，尤其是在马来西亚和新加坡一带的美食。它是利用肉与骨，再配合各种中药材与香料，并熬制多个小时后所煲成的浓汤。汤里并没有茶叶或茶的成份，但是由於人们一般在食用时都会多泡杯茶饮用，所以一般都习称肉骨茶。
