姜陳皮燉瘦肉 A remedy for nighttime cough

姜陳皮燉瘦肉 Ginger Dried Tangerine Peel Meat Stew

After the 4th day of the sickness, the 2nd night of coughing, and the $15.99 maximum strength cough medicine doesn’t work at all.  We look into some traditional Chinese soup for remedy.  And last night, we finally had a better sleep.


  • Ginger – 4 slices
  • Dried Tangerine Peels – 3 peels
  • 1/4 lb of lean meat


Place all ingredients into mini stew pot and fill it up with water (up to about 90% full).  Place mini stew pot into a big pot with water.  Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2.5 hours.

    I’ve been coughing for a week and it really sucks. Just wondering if I can make this without using a stew pot.

      Hi Kaman-
      You can use a regular pot, just remember to add more water as you will lose liquid throughout the 2.5 hours of simmering. The soup will come out less clear than using the stew pot, but the health benefits would be similar.
      Hope you feel better.
