It's missing a few ingredients that are essential for vietamese kho; critically ginger, garlic, lemongrass and shaoxing wine. I'd also cut the sugar to 1/2 tsp max

Used to love this from the meal kits you could buy, was gutted when they stopped making them and since then have been looking for a recipe, very impressed when we made it, not quite like the kits but very very good, we think it could do with a little bit of fresh ginger in it but with or without will be making again very soon.

Looks yum! There used to be a similar kit available from various supermarkets but can't find it anywhere anymore. Will definitely give a go!
