Mutton is known to have “heaty” properties in TCM. It is great for confinement, during rainy days! Or just an excuse to eat some mutton 🙂
We simplified this dish by adding Huiji waist tonic and yu zhu instead of the usual long list of Chinese herbs. This makes the soup even more nourishing for the body. Doing that also helps to conceal some of the gamey taste of mutton that we love and hate.
