We were all craving Asian food. We were craving pork. We were craving ribs. To be honest, we were craving for this particular dish. I’ve done it for countless dinners, and everyone at home shows delight as if they’ve had it for the first time, every single time. And why not, these ribs are so succulent and tender. The sticky sauce, with all its spices and flavors just makes you reach for more. Plain simple, for us this was comfort food!
I’ve travelled around Asia for some photography assignments in the past, and have come to love this dish even before I learned how to cook it. I’ve even tried to replicate it coming home from a trip to Indonesia. Though I ended up with something that tasted close, I knew I was missing something from the authentic.
