Recipe: Vietnamese Caramelised Spare Ribs (Sườn Ram Mặn)

Vietnamese Caramelised Spare Ribs (Sườn Ram Mặn) is another must try Vietnamese classic dish. If you want a simple dinner, try this dish as it will require you to braise the pork ribs slowly until they are tender and the sauce is reduced to a thick, flavour-packed glaze coated all over the ribs. Mind you, the yummy aroma of this dish while simmering on the stove will make you hungry!!

I love this dish as the caramelising has added flavour and colour to this dish. It is best served with sliced cucumbers or some fresh lettuce and hot steamy rice. Dinner is ready!!!

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at BeyondNorm.com in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.

    Its a lovely dish. I always want to cook it but do not know how. Inspite of having many Vietnamese friends, none can tell me the correct procedure to prepare it. Thank you so much, will be trying soon.
