An easy to prepare spare ribs dish which is like cos' it can be cooked earlier ahead of mealtime. The pork ribs are yummylicious after stewing and resting in the flavourful gravy. The original recipe uses lamb belly.
Verdict - aromatic, tasty and tender pork ribs in appetising sauce. Great with steaming hot rice.
