Tom Yum Pork Ribs (Tom Yum Gradoog Moo)

Tom Yum Pork Ribs (Tom Yum Gradoog Moo)


Recipe source :  Adapted from

This slow-boiled tom yum pork ribs is excellent! A wonderful blend of flavours. Sour, hot and spiciness all in one bowl! And the pork ribs are so tender, they were bursting with flavours from the hot and spicy soup. 

I felt a warm glow after drinking this spicy soup. Very satisfying!

I am definitely making this again!


500g pork ribs
1 large tomato, cut into wedges
1500ml chicken stock
3 tbsp lime juice
6 chilli padi, cut length-wise and remove seeds

1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1 1/2 tbsp chilli paste

1 stalk coriander
2 shallots, quartered

1.  Place pork ribs, lemongrass, coriander, galangal, shallots and water into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and let it simmer for about 50 minutes until the ribs are tender.
Do not cover the pot with a lid in order to get a clear broth.
