Lightly-spiced Keto Pork Ribs

This is a simple and tasty way to prepare pork ribs if you are steering clear of store-bought marinades which often contain sugar. A spice mix is rubbed onto the meat before it’s very tightly wrapped and slow-cooked to perfection. I finish it off with a very good quality drizzle olive oil and sea salt flakes before tucking in! (Note: You could use a rack of ribs, but at the time of making this dish, I could only find pork ribs that had already been cut, as pictured.)

Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

Calories: 1005kcal | Carbohydrates: 1.3g | Protein: 57g | Fat: 85g


  • 700 g (24.7 oz) pork ribs
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TB olive oil, to drizzle
  • sea salt flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped parsley, to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 130°C (fan oven). This is 150°C for conventional ovens (or 300°F / gas mark 2).
  • Place the pork ribs into a large bowl and scatter over the ground ginger, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and salt.
  • Get stuck in with your hands, rubbing the mixture evenly into the ribs.
  • Place the ribs onto a long piece of aluminium foil.
  • 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. Remove the tray from the oven and wait 20 minutes before opening up the foil.
  • Serve warm drizzled with olive oil and scattered with salt flakes and chopped parsley.
