Hot and Sour Pork Ribs Soup | Cambodian Foods Recipe

Hot and Sour Pork Ribs Soup is one of the most popular soup across Southeast Asia. It is always so tasty that I can’t stop wanting to eat it again and again.

The flavor is mostly coming from the mix of fresh lemongrass, galangal, garlic and kaffir lime leaves that can add to soups. It can be replaced by other meats that you like, and still taste very good.


  • Pork ribs
  • Lemongrass, Galangal, Kaffir lime, chili, garlic, Turmeric
  • Fish sauce, sugar, water
  • water convolvulus, tamarind sauce


Pound lemongrass, galangal, garlic, kaffir lime leaves and chilies in a mortar until finely chopped and turn yellow.

Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Pour the pounded ingredients in the pot and stir fry them a few seconds.

Cut the pork ribs as bitted pieces. Then add it into that pot and stir fry again until it’s mixed.

Season with fish sauce, sugar, and pour a bowl of water. Then allow it to cook gently for 20 minutes, so the pork ribs will be well cooked.

After 20 minutes passed, we add water convolvulus in. Following by tamarind sauce which used as a sour sauce.

After it’s well cooked, we transfer the dish in the bowl and ready to serve with rice. Please enjoy with your family!!
