I have been MIA from the blogging world for a while. It feels good to be back! Today, I am making brown sugar glazed pork spareribs, one of Vu’s favorite dishes. This dish brings me back to my undergraduate days at UC Davis when I was living with two other girls, Kc and L. We would cook together, then gathered around the dinner table and enjoyed our creations while chatting about classes, college drama, and everything in between. Kc, one of my closest friends, showed me how to make this dish. It is definitely one of the simpler Vietnamese dishes but incredibly delicious. The meat falls off the bone with a hint of sweetness while your olfactory bulb picks up the scent of the sesame oil. Every since Kc taught me how to make this dish, I have cooked it on a monthly basis, if not more often. I hope you find these pork spareribs as satisfying as I did.
Ingredients1 lb pork spareribs 1 tbsp sesame oil 1 ½ tbsp fish sauce 3 tbsp of brown sugar Green onions for garnish
In a frying pan, add the sesame oil and turn on medium high heat. Add the strained pork pieces and let them brown for about 5 minutes. Add in the fish sauce and let the meat cook for another 5 minutes.
