2 shallots – minced finely
3 cloves garlic – minced finely
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp sugar

In a large bowl, marinate the pork ribs with all the ingredients (except water) for 1 hour or overnight.

 

In a deep pan or pot with lid, stir the sugar and water together and bring to boil.

 

Over medium-low heat, continue to let the sugar mixture boil and bubble.

Keep a close eye on the mixture and when it starts to turn champagne gold color, it is ready.

 

Add in pork ribs and fish sauce, toss well to ensure the ribs are evenly coated.

 

Bring to boil.

Cover and cook the ribs over low heat for 40 – 45 mins, or until fork tender.

 

Turn up heat to thicken and reduce the liquid, tossing the ribs to coat the sauce.
