Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Place a large heavy skillet or wok over high heat, drizzle the oil into the pan, and pour the sugar over the oil. Cook and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves and turns a light brown color. Be careful, the melted sugar is very hot. Stir in the pork, 2 green onions, chile pepper, black pepper, shallots, garlic, and salt, and toss them in the caramelized sugar until the pork turns golden brown. Drizzle the sesame oil over the pork and vegetables, reduce the heat to low, and let simmer to reduce the juices.
  2. When the juices have been mostly absorbed, turn the heat back up to high, and cook and stir the pork and vegetables until the sauce has thickened and coated the pork, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of green onion rings.

my husband is from vietnam and taught me how to prepare this recipe. Put 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a skillet or wok. melt till it turns a dark amber color (be careful not to burn the sugar or you will have to start over) then add the ribs and oil and 1 to 2 cloves garlic.stir to get mixture on ribs, cook on medium high heat until until ribs are almost done. then add 4 table spoons fishsauce and black pepper to taste (the fishsauce is key to this dish) add sliced green onion stir and serve with rice.

I've made this and my family and friends all like them, as Karen said the fish sauce is the key.

Don't use Fish Sauce in this recipe. It made the entire house smell horrible for days. I followed the recipe to the letter.
