  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, caramelize sugar and water until golden brown, being careful not to burn it. Add pork, either whole or in pieces. Coat it with syrup and brown for several minutes on all sides.

  2. Add onions and brown. Lower heat, cover pork with extra water, if necessary, and stir in salt. Simmer for about 1 hour for a large piece, less for ribs or smaller pieces.

  3. Watch the liquid doesn’t boil dry, the water should reduce to a golden syrup which can be spooned over the whole loin or the ribs when served hot on a bed of steamed rice.
