- In a large saucepan, brown the meat in the oil. Set aside on a plate.
- In the same saucepan, brown the onions. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and cook until well caramelized. Add the fish sauce and soy sauce and stir to combine.
- Return the meat to the saucepan and add the coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 2 hours or until the meat falls off the bone. Add the eggs and cook for about 2 minutes. Serve with rice.
Traditionally, this dish is cooked with coconut water instead of coconut milk, as in the recipe here. Coca-Cola was sometimes used when the Vietnamese discovered the American soft drinks. In the North part of Vietnam, they use water or broth.
