  • 3 pounds baby back ribs, cut into individual ribs
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns, cracked
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • canola oil for deep-frying


  • In a pot over medium heat, combine ribs, vinegar, soy sauce, water, garlic, bay leaves, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, uncovered and without stirring, for about 5 minutes.
  • Lower heat, cover, and continue to cook for about 40-50 minutes or until ribs are tender but not falling apart.
  • Drain ribs, discarding liquid and aromatics. Allow to cool.
  • In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper.
  • In a bowl, beat eggs until foamy.
  • Lightly dredge rib pieces in flour, dip in beaten eggs, and then dredge again in flour to fully coat.
  • In a pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inches deep of oil. Add ribs in batches and deep-fry, turning on sides as needed, for about 4 to 5 minutes or until golden and crisp.
  • Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.


  • If you prefer smaller pieces, have the butcher cut through the bones.
  • To keep from drying out, cook the ribs in the adobo mixture until tender but not falling apart as they will continue to cook when deep-fried.
