    Marinate ribs with shallot, garlic, pepper, salt and fish sauce

  • 2

    Place a heavy skillet over high heat with a generous drizzle of oil and granulated sugar. When the granules of sugar have dissolved and turned golden, toss in the ribs. Occasionally stir ribs until they’ve evenly caramelized

    Add about half a can of Coco Rico, and enough water to cover the meat with about an inch of water over. Toss well and simmer until ribs have absorbed most of the sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning with sugar or fish sauce. Garnish with rings of scallion. Serve with rice.
