Coca-Cola Spare Ribs are sweet, savory and sticky ! Have the napkins ready for this one ! AND Coca-Cola Onion rings recipe included to serve with these lip smacking delicious Ribs.
Sweet/savory and sticky ! That is the way I like my spare ribs … and Coca-Cola – oh yes, this is me!!!
This marinade can be used for any kind of meat, lamb, beef, chicken, whatever you like sticky. It can also be used only as a basting sauce, which is how we made these ribs.
If marinating, leave for 4 hours or overnight, turning your marinade container regularly.
I served the ribs with Coca-Cola Onion Rings and some salads on the side.
Coca-Cola Spare Ribs
- 2 t Fresh Ginger finely grated
- 4 t Fresh Garlic crushed
- 1 TB Fresh Rosemary finely chopped
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- 1 TB Fennel Seeds
- 2 t Ground Cumin
- 2 t Paprika

- 1/2 cup Treacle Sugar
- 3/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/2 cup Tomato Sauce (thick Ketch-Up)
- 3 medium Spare Ribs

Place all the Marinade ingredients into a medium saucepan – bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, stirring now and then, until reduced to about 3 cups – cool 30 minutes before use
Pre-heat the oven to the maximum grill setting (these can be made on your BBQ/Braai as well)
Place the Spare Ribs on a roasting pan (or BBQ/Braai) – season with Salt and Pepper – brush liberally with the marinade and grill, turning regularly and basting with more of the marinade, until cooked through and caramelized
COCA-COLA ONION RINGS:
- 1 cup Flour
- 1/8 t Salt
- Just enough Coca-Cola to make a yogurt-like consistency
- Sliced Onion Rings
- Extra Flour for coating
- Oil, for deep-fry
NB: Leftover marinade can be stored in the refrigerator.
