Never knew it was possible to cook with cola. You would think the ribs would get a cola flavour. but the cola will just makes the meat tender and a bit more sweeter than normal. The ribs will be extra sticky and sweet. Of course the meat will fall off the bones.


  • 1 kg spareribs;
  • 1 tsp tumeric powder;
  • 1 tsp paprika powder;
  • 1 tsp cumin powder;
  • 1 tsp coriander powder;
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder;
  • 2 tbsp olive oil;
  • 1 can of coca cola;
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup;
  • 10 bay leaves;
  • salt and pepper to taste.



  1. Preheat the oven at 180C.
  2. Put the ribs in a baking tray;
  3. Get a big bowl and add all the spices (including pepper and salt), olive oil and maple syrup;
  4. Stir the mixture well and pour it over the ribs and rub the mixture in;
  5. Add the cola in the baking tray;
  6. Add the bay leaves;
  7. Put the baking tray in the oven. After 30 minutes lower the temperature to 150C for 90 minutes;
  8. Baste the ribs ever now and then;
  9. Serve with bread or whatever you like!
