DIRECTIONS

  • Remove the bone and outer rind from the ribs/pork belly, and cut into 1 cm slices.
  • Place sugar in a wok or saucepan and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Increase to medium heat and boil, without stirring, for 5 minutes, or until the sugar turns an even, golden brown.
  • Add the pork and shallots and stir to coat.
  • Add the fish sauce, kecap manis, pepper and 1 cup (250ml) warm water.
  • Stir until all sugar has melted.
  • Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, then cook, uncovered and stirring often, until the sauce is sticky and the meat is cooked.
  • If there is too much liquid, spoon some out. Basically the sauce should reduce to a thick glaze.
  • Garnish with coriander - this really adds to the flavour of the dish.
  • Serve with rice.
