Thick and Gelatinous Pork Bone Broth

This pork bone broth was done unintentionally, as I had a request from a friend to prepare a broth for a hotpot-get-together dinner. So I get all pumped up and come up with this pork bone broth recipe. It is more of a fusion pork bone broth, sort of a east meet west technique which I mashed it up. Here it is, I present to you a thick, creamy and gelatinous pork bone broth!

p/s : You will notice the recipe is a little different than what I had in my video, cause I had it slightly adjusted as some of the flavors overkill some other ingredients
