Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Spareribs

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.

Ingredients

1 lb pork spareribs
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 ½ tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp of brown sugar
Green onions for garnish

Instructions

Cut the pork into bite size pieces and boil on medium high heat for 20 minutes to soften the meat and remove any excess fat.

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.

Add the brown sugar and let the meat caramelize for 10 minutes taking care not to burn them.

When ready to serve, garnish with green onions and enjoy it with rice.
