One of the things I really love about keto is that I can eat pork ribs without worrying that it will ruin my diet. Pork ribs are very low in carbohydrates, while also very rich in healthy fats needed to get into ketosis.
I know most people prefer to cook their ribs on the grill, but there are times when it’s more practical to have a substitute that doesn’t cut the flavor. For this spare ribs recipe, you’ll use a saucepan and skillet.
Don’t worry about the flavor, because this amazing blend of Chinese flavors (ginger, star anise, Szechuan pepper, and gluten-free tamari sauce) will rock your world. We recommend gluten-free tamari sauce instead of regular soy sauce because it is naturally wheat-free. But tamari sauce will taste just as great as soy sauce. If you prefer to be completely free of soybeansYou can use coconut acids instead.
If you want to make the ribs spicy, add a little red hot pepper or a few drops of hot sauce. For a more authentic flavor, try using Chinese spicy sauce.
It will take just over an hour to make these super tender spare ribs, but I promise you they’ll be well worth the wait. It’s a great option for a family dinner, so get ready and amaze everyone with your skills.
Although you’ll get plenty of flavor in the ribs, you can also add a dipping sauce to go with your dish, so check out these 24 Keto BBQ Sauce recipes for the best backyard cookout and find your favorite!
