      Beautiful! Perfect blend of flavors and we loved the combination of pork and star anise which are the stars of the dish. Due to local availability the only change I made was to use spare ribs instead of back ribs. I served rice on the side as suggested but didn't bother with the optional dipping sauce, after tasting there was plenty of flavor in the soup so in my opinion it didn't anything else to make a wonderful meal.
