- 2 average racks pork ribs (1.6 kg/ 3.5 lb) – will yield about 50% meat
- 1 medium shallot or 1/2 medium white onion (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- tsp chile powder
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
- 1 tsp salt (smoked works best)
- Optionally: serve with Spicy Chocolate BBQ Sauce (+ 1.8 g net carbs / 2 tbsp)
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper (I used white)
Hands-on 15 minutes Overall 75 minutes (+ marinating)
- Prepare the ribs the night before (or at least a couple of hours in advance). First, chop them into pieces.
- Now, let’s prepare the marinade. Place all other ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Cover the ribs in the prepared marinade and place them in the fridge overnight (or at least a few hours).
- Preheat the oven to medium-low 150 °C/ 300 °F. Place the marinated ribs in the oven and cook slowly for 60-75 minutes.
- When the ribs are cooked, turn the oven off and take them out. You can also half-open the oven and leave the ribs in until you’re ready to eat. You can serve them with BBQ sauce or ketchup (sugar-free!). If you have trouble finding a good low-carb BBQ sauce, try Spicy Chocolate BBQ Sauce (+ 1.8 g net carbs / 2 tablespoons)!
