Coke Pork Ribs ~ New Version!


This is one of the few dishes I have learnt through a parenting forum (Mum4Mum) when I first started blogging in 2005. At that time this Coke Pork Ribs and Coke Chicken Wings are one of the famous dishes among the forum members and related food bloggers. And if you have follow most of my posts from that time you might have tried this Coke Pork Ribs recipe which used "Char Siew Sauce" as one of the ingredients.

Recently, Derrick from sgfoodonfoot has cooked the Coke Chicken Wings using Happy Call Pan (HCP) and it definitely brings back my memories and inspired me to cook this Coke Pork Ribs again which shown in this post.


COKE PORK RIBS
(using Happy Call Pan)


This is a very quick and easy finger liking dish where you can use either spare ribs or chicken wings as one of the main ingredients. But for us, we prefer spare ribs compared to chicken because of it's texture and taste which is similar to Pai Gu Wang(排骨王). And if you prefer a darker brown colour spare ribs, you can add an additional 1/2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce while simmering with the coke and its sugars content would give a deep glossy coating and caramelized flavor to the end products.


(Serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 30 minutes | Cooking: 30 minutes)

Ingredients:
500g - 600g Prime Pork Ribs, cut smaller pieces
1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tablespoon Honey
1/2 Tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Cooking Wine
1/2 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Cornflour
1/2 Can Of Coke(Coca-Cola)

Method:-
1. Rinse and pat dry spare ribs. Add in all the above ingredients except Coke and marinate it for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.

2. Arrange marinated spare ribs on HCP, cover and cook for about 2 minutes on each side before adding in half can of Coke.

3. When the mixture comes to boil, cover and lock the pan. Simmer the spare ribs on the lowest heat for about 30 minutes or till sauce thicken and meat is tender.

4. Half way through the cooking time, you could add extra 1/2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce to darken the colour of the spare ribs. (remember to flip the HCP a few times during cooking in order to give the spare ribs an evenly colour coating)

5. When done, remove spare ribs from pan and garnish it with some chopped spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve hot with steamed rice.

NOTE:-
~ You can also use any Non-stick Pan for this recipe instead of Happy call Pan.


Till then have a great weekend everyone! Catch up again with more NEW recipes next week. Cheers!

    1. Hi Janet,

      It depend on individual, if you like u can add about 1 teaspoon of oil and grease it over the pan before adding the ribs so get that char-grilled effect :)

    1. Hi Sandy,
      Becos I din add any oil (as seen on TV) for frying my sunny side up egg, it end up sticking to the pan, sigh! Probably my heat was on medium high, should use low heat instead. But when I grease d pan, it is much better and won't stick, but forgot to grease the other side, so when flip, it stick on the upper pan, hahaha!
