It's also my dad's favorite dish because he loves salty foods and soy braised dishes made sure that the meat was packed with flavour. My mom stopped cooking this dish, along with some other calorie packed ones, when me and my sister started our long journey down the weight loss path....Or maybe it's just because we left home for school and didn't really know what she's been cooking since.
Add 2 lbs cooked ribs to a deep pan with 1/2 cup dark soy sauce, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 cup water. Bring to a boil covered and let stew for 20 minutes. Then take off the cover and let the liquid reduce to a thicker sauce.
If you are cooking with raw ribs, just pan fry the ribs until the outside is browned and continue with the braising process.
To cook the rice: Add 1 1/2 cup rice to a pan, wash it 3 times and drain. Add 2 cups of cold water and bring to a boil with lid on. Once it starts to boil, turn heat down to low (2) and cook for 25 minutes. It's the easiest method I know and more often I just turn the heat down and forget about it. Since the heat is so low, it's not gonna dry out or burn up in flames...
