Coke Pork Ribs with Garnish

Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs (排骨王) is a perennial favourite in my family. It is a pork rib dish marinated in a sweet and tangy sauce. We love it so much that it is a frequent dish on our table whenever we dine out at Zhu Chao (煮炒) stalls - cheaper version of Chinese restaurants.

Four years ago, I saw a recipe for this version of pork ribs and gave it a try. It was a hit then and I cooked it again for tonight’s dinner with some variations to the original recipe.

If you prefer the pork ribs to be of a tantalizing dark brown colour, you can add an additional ½ tablespoon of dark soy sauce to simmer with the coke.


Coke Pork Ribs


500 gm prime pork ribs, cut into small pieces
2 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Char Siu Sauce (李镜记叉烧酱)
½ can Coke
½ tbsp Hua Diao Jiu (花雕酒)
1 tsp dark soy sauce
some pepper


1. Wash and pat dry the ribs. Marinate with Char Siew Sauce, Hua Diao Jiu, dark soy sauce and some pepper.

2. Mix till well-combined. Set aside in fridge and let it marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

3. Pour the marinated ribs and coke into a non-stick wok or pot. Simmer on low heat until the liquid dries up and thickens.
