Preheat a dutch oven with oil over medium-high heat. Season all the sides of ribs with salt, paprika and pepper. Fry each side of the ribs until it turns golden brown. Remove from dutch oven and set aside.
Dice onions into half rings. Place onions into the grease that was left from the ribs and sauté until golden.
Add ribs back to the dutch oven. Pour coke over the ribs.
Bake ribs for about 90 minutes at 280°F. Use a fork to poke through, to confirm readiness.
