Vietnamese Caramelized Spare Ribs| Suon Ram Man

I prepared this for tonight's dinner.  The pork is marinated in a mixture of garlic, shallot, sugar and soy sauce.  The meat was incredibly tender and having absorbed the sweetness of the coconut juice, it tasted delicious!
Btw, recipe is for the gorgeous AubreyohDang.  Hope you enjoy this Suon Ram Man recipe as much as I do! :)
