Milk Street Recipe

Sweet Soy–Braised Pork

50 minutes

The combination of soy sauce and molasses—inspired by Charmaine Solomon’s Balinese-style pork from “Encyclopedia of Asian Food”—mimics the flavor and consistency of kecap manis, or Indonesian sweet soy sauce. Boneless country-style pork spareribs provide rich, meaty flavor, but be sure to trim off excess fat so the dish won't be greasy. Serve with steamed rice, topping each portion with cilantro and sliced chilies and offering lime wedges on the side.
