White Coffee Pork Ribs Recipe

I love all meats! And so, I will never say no to a good ribs recipe. Let me tell you now that this coffee pork ribs recipe is an absolute delight! I can do without the white coffee glaze, really; but having it in these succulent ribs just gives extra joy and (palpitations) in my heart.

Coffee Pork Ribs Recipe

Hubby cooked this pork ribs recipe last New Year’s eve. It was a simple feast for 2. While it was just him and me at home (and our 2yo bub who doesn’t eat much!); we nearly finished the entire dish. That and with a small serving of pasta on the side. It was a restaurant quality meal! We’re definitely doing this again!

Here’s how to make this ribs recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

-Pork ribs, 1kgs, cut into strips or into bit size (depending on how you want them served)
-Cooking oil, for deep frying

For the marinade:
-Salt, 1 tsp
-Sugar, 1 tsp
-Oyster sauce, 4 tbsp
-Sesame oil, ½ tbsp
-Bicarbonate of soda, 1tsp
-Rice flour, 4 tbsp
-Tapioca starch, 4 tbsp
-Eggs, 2 pcs, beaten
-Water, 50ml

We prefer using rice flour and tapioca starch because it gives a good, smooth crunch to the meat without the dough-like after-taste effect of the plain flour. While we don't normally use them at home, it's worth buying them just for this recipe so we get the texture that we want for our ribs.

For the white coffee sauce:
-White coffee, 2 packets  (We used the Old Town White Coffee brand. Other brands will do.)
-Sugar, 3 tbsp
-Garlic, 1 bulb, crushed and chopped
-Worcestershire sauce, 4 tbsp
-Ground pepper, 1 tsp
-Soy sauce, 2 tbsp
-Rice or Chinese cooking wine or White wine, 2 tbsp
-Water, 100ml


1. Mix all the marinate ingredients in a bowl.
2. Marinate the pork for at least 2 hours.
3. Fry the pork ribs in a hot oil under medium heat for about 7-10 minutes or until golden brown.

10. Serve with pasta or a glass of cold beer.

Coffee Pork Ribs Recipe

Ahhh!!! A cold drink definitely puts this pork ribs dish in its right place. Just a caution though for the pregnant women readers, the coffee will definitely kick in; and your little occupant could get more excited than usual. I mean the little person in my belly kept me up all night (which was fine since we were waiting for the New Year, anyway!). It really seemed like the tiny fella' was having a party of its own in there.

So, there! A little piece of heaven made in our very kitchen! Try them and let me know how it goes. Remember me when you cook.
