This week, I was really craving some ribs so I pulled out my Slow-cooker and went to town. Normally we only think about using our slow-cookers for roasts or chili, but this Keto Rib Recipe is one of my slow-cooker go-to's. The original recipe can be found in The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.
I use pork ribs, and sugar-free BBQ sauce to make these keto ribs. Restaurant BBQ sauce has so much sugar in it. I've found that making ribs at home allows me to use my sugar-free sauce and feels like a big accomplishment. I love eating fancy restaurant style meals at home, and the fact that it's actually really easy makes it that much better.
As a variation on the original recipe, which can be found in my cookbook: The Easy 5-ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook, today a popped the finished ribs into the broiler for about 5 minutes on the top rack to add a little bit more texture to the meat.
The original recipe suggests that you should set the slow-cooker on High for 4 hours, but if you want, you can leave the ribs in for 6-8 hours on low heat. The meat will be extra tender this way, so be careful removing them from the slow-cooker.
