You will not prepare your ribs any other way after trying this method! These literally fall off the bone. I slow-cooked the rack in an air-tight parcel of foil at a relatively low oven temperature. The low-carb marinade is rich, tasty and packed with flavour. The recipe calls for 1 rack of low-carb pork ribs between two people – an ideal Saturday night treat for you and your loved one. THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)

Fats of Life® is a blog that I run as a hobby, but did you know that I am also the author of two cookbooks? My first book Keto Kitchen (published by Kyle Books in 2020) is available worldwide (and has remained one of the best-selling low carb cookbooks in the UK). My second book Lazy Keto Kitchen (coming mid-year, 2021) is currently available to pre-order.

Low-carb Pork Ribs (that fall off the bone)
- Preheat the oven to 130°C (fan oven). This is 150°C for conventional ovens (or 300°F / gas mark 2).
- Place the rack of ribs onto a long piece of aluminium foil and season with a little salt on all sides. Wrap very tightly in the foil to ensure that no steam escapes. The foil parcel should be 100% airtight. If in doubt, double-wrap. If you may have accidentally pierced the foil, double wrap! Place the foil-wrapped ribs foil onto a tray.
- Place in the oven for 3 hours.
- In the meantime, make the marinade by combining the ketchup, tamari, olive oil, mustard, vinegar and the ginger and garlic pastes in a small bowl. Set aside.
- After 3 hours, remove the tray from the oven - but do not open the foil for at least 20-25 minutes.
- In the meantime, prepare your braai (BBQ) or grill, or simply increase the oven temperature to max grill.
- Carefully remove the ribs from the foil and brush both sides with the marinade. Place the ribs onto the tray and into the oven (or place gently on the BBQ grill) and grill for 7-9 minutes, basting regularly until the ribs have warmed through again and the marinade is sticky.
- Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
