Sweet and Spicy Hoison Spare Ribs with Coca-Cola


Make with Coca-Cola

What You Need

  • 1 Cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 Cup soy
  • 1 Cup hoisin
  • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Inch ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • 2 Pounds pork spare ribs
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Chinese five-spice
  • 1 Teaspoon hot smoked paprika


  1. For the cooking sauce, combine the Coca-Cola, soy, hoisin, Sriracha, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and garlic. Mix the cooking sauce ingredients in separate bowl. To create the dry rub, mix together the pepper, salt, Chinese five-spice, and smoked paprika in a separate, large mixing bowl. Cut ribs into portions and toss in rub. If slow cooker has a saute function, brown ribs and drain fat. Otherwise, place ribs on cookie sheet and broil carefully until browned on both sides (skip this step if using short ribs). Place ribs with sauce in slow cooker and cook on low for eight hours (or until desired tenderness). Baste with sauce periodically. As a variation to this ribs recipe, try using three pounds of short ribs and bump up the cooking time by about two hours on low, or cook for five hours on high.
