Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs (ซี่โครงหมูผัดเปรี้ยวหวาน)

by - November 13, 2013

This is Thai Style Sweet and Sour Pork Ribs, a delicious stir fry dish with tender pork rib cutlets. If you love pork ribs, I recommend you to try them this way.  With savory sweet and sour sauce, the ribs are very flavorful yet delicate to the palate.  

Like a lot of stir fry dishes, this sweet and sour pork ribs are super easy to make. You really need to boil the ribs, cut vegetables and stir fry them with basic ingredients in your kitchen like ketchup, chili sauce, sugar and light soy sauce. If you like crispy outside and soft juicy inside ribs, you can boil it first then deep fry them. Today I didn't deep fry the ribs as I wanted to keep things a little bit on healthier side and tried to spend less time in the kitchen. 

This sweet and sour sauce is also extremely versatile as you can make different variations, pork, chicken, beef or seafood depending on your mood and what you have in the fridge. I always love the classic sweet and sour pork, but certain days I love sweet and sour seafood, they are all delicious. 

I hope you get to try this recipe someday and enjoy it with your loved ones.
