2 pounds pork ribs, boned, then cut into half-inch pieces
2 cups onions sliced thinly
3 Tablespoons minced garlic
3 Tablespoons Chinese black vinegar
10 hard-cooked eggs, shells removed and discarded
2 cups cooked hot rice

1. Heat sugar with two cups of cold water stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved and it turns a light brown.
2. Remove this from the heat and set it aside.
3. Put pork in another pot with a quart of water and when boiled, reduce the heat, skim off any foam, then simmer for one hour, add the onions and garlic, and the black vinegar and the caramelized sugar, and eggs and simmer this for half an hour until the eggs are evenly browned.
4. Serve with the hot rice, each person taking some of the rice, an egg, and some of the sugar mixture, cutting the egg into small pieces, adding some of the onion-garlic mixture, stirring, and eating it with hands or chopsticks.
