Caramelized Pork Ribs with Ginger in Soda – Suon Kho Gung voi Soda

This is an easy and simple caramelized pork ribs dish that my family likes to eat with jasmine rice.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25-30 minutes
Serving:  I cook this in a 10-inch deep nonstick pan.


1 can of 12 fl. oz Coca-Cola or Coke

1.5 – 2.0 lb pork ribs (1.74lb)

1 cup ginger – julienne

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp salt

1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil

black pepper


1.  Peel and julienne ginger and chop pork ribs into short lenths about 2 inches long.

2.  In deep nonstick pan, heat oil, minced garlic, and ginger on high for a minute.

3.  Add in the pork ribs and 1 teaspoon salt.  Brown it for about 3 minutes. Stir well.

4.   Pour in the can of Coca-Cola or Coke.   Turn heat down to medium low (#4 on my GE Spectra stove).  Sprinkle in black pepper.   Set timer to 25 minutes.

15 minutes later….

27 minutes later….

You can turn off stove at 25 minutes if you want a little more sauce.  I cooked my ribs for 27 minutes.

5.  Transfer to plate and serve.  I love mixing the rice into the pan to coat it with the sauce.
