This recipe is courtesy of Guest Chef Eric Banh, Chef-Owner of Monsoon in Seattle, WA. A traditional Vietnamese dish, these slow-cooked ribs are richly infused with coconut and fish sauce.

Method

Place ribs on a sheet pan and coat both sides with salt and peppercorns.

Cover pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Remove ribs from refrigerator and cut into 2-rib sections.

In a deep baking pan or braising pot, stir together coconut juice, broth, garlic, fish sauce and sugar.

Add ribs.

Place a piece of parchment paper directly on top of the ribs and braising liquid.

Cover pan with a lid or wrap tightly with foil.

Cook until the meat is very tender and falls off of the bone, about 1 1/2 hours. (If using hardboiled eggs, add them to the pot during the last 20 minutes of cooking.)

Serve on a bed of leafy greens, if you like, with braised hardboiled eggs.
