Place the croc ribs in a deep roast­ing pan lined with grease proof pa­per. Pour in the mas­ter stock un­til ribs are fully sub­merged then place an­other sheet of grease proof pa­per over the top of the ribs. Seal the tray with foil and make a small hole in the cen­ter. Place the tray in the oven at 130C for 2.5 to 3 hours. When cooked the ribs will be very ten­der to the touch. Re­move ribs from stock and place in cen­ter of the plate. For the glaze, place the palm su­gar and co­conut vine­gar in a sauce pan and sim­mer over a medium heat. Keep brush­ing the sides of the pan

Driz­zle the glaze and ants over the cooked ribs and lightly around the plate. For the Asian slaw, finely shave the red cab­bage, fen­nel, spring onion, car­rot and red cap­sicum. Cut the chives into half fin­ger length pieces and pick fresh mint leaves. Com­bine in a bowel and place aside un­til ready.
