Fry your Pork Ribs!

Most pork rib recipes you can find on the Internet involve long hours of smoking or slow-baking. However, did you know you can reduce the time you spend in the kitchen by frying them? Yes! This cooking tip comes from Chrissy Teigen’s mom, Pepper Thai, who is a foodie as well as her daughter. We can see now where Chrissy gets her cooking genes!


Following her mom’s recommendation, she put her hands to work and developed this Thai Soy-Garlic Fried Ribs. You can find this mouthwatering recipe on her cookbook ‘Cravings: Hungry For More’ published in 2018, and we have it for you on this blog too!

These Thai fried ribs are so easy to make. You just need a handful of ingredients and in minutes you will have hot, juicy ribs with a soy-garlic-rubbed Thai twist. Try this delicious pork ribs before the Summer is over!

Check the Recipe!

Servings: 2–4


  • 1 rack baby back pork ribs (12–14 ribs), separated into individual ribs
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 7 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil (for frying; about 2 qt.)


  • Place ribs in a large bowl. Add soy sauce, garlic, and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature.
  • Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high until a deep-fry thermometer registers 370°. (Or test oil by throwing in a little piece of bread or some breadcrumbs; if they sizzle immediately but aren’t burning, you’re ready.) Working in batches, fry ribs until just cooked and well browned, 3–4 minutes. Return oil to 370° between batches and try to skim out any stray bits of garlic so they don’t burn in the oil and make it taste like burnt garlic.
  • Transfer ribs to a platter and serve plain or with your favorite hot sauce alongside.
