Loved this recipe which is easy to prepare and cook. Only a few ingredients but this dish is awesome. The taste is like Braised Sweet Sauce Spare Ribs [Pai Kut Wong]. The spare ribs are not deep fried but braised with the seasoning sauce until tender and gravy is thick.
If you are always busy but love to eat at home, this dish is a good one to try as it can be prepared earlier and stored.
