Bring a large stockpot of water to a boil and cook the meaty bones for 10 minutes to get rid of bone and blood particles.
Drain, reserve the ribs, and rinse the pot well.
Return the pork ribs to the same stockpot. Add 5 quarts of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
Reduce the heat to low and add the shrimp (or squid or fish sauce), sugar, daikon, ginger, scallions, and peppercorns.
Simmer partially covered for 4-5 hours, or until reduced to about 3 quarts, occasionally skimming off any foam.
If necessary, add salt to taste and stir.
Strain and discard the solids and skim off the fat.
If using dried squid, you must remove the skin before using it. The best way to do so is to blacken the skin, which enhances the flavor.
If using dried shrimp, be sure to choose bright pinkish-orange, medium to large (the clear plastic package will be labeled XS, S, M, or L).
