Keto  Baby Back Ribs

These keto baby back ribs may just be the best ribs you will have ever eaten!  They fall off the bone without being overcooked and falling apart, have a nice bark (or crust), and are loaded with flavor!

The main difference between traditional ribs and keto ribs is the bbq sauce.  Traditional bbq sauce is full of carbs and sugar. However, these are made keto by using a keto-friendly bbq sauce.

Great ribs require a great rub recipe! The rub below helps develop a deep, rich taste and tenderizes the meat. Let's go through the ingredients:

Start by removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. The membrane will make the ribs hard to chew and keep out flavor and bbq sauce.

Then, rub the ribs with water and the dry rub.

2

Wrap them tightly in foil and let them rest in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours to allow time for the salt to absorb into the meat.

3

Cook for 3 to 5 hours, basting or spritzing every hour or so with the apple cider vinegar mixture. When doing this, be sure not to leave the lid open too long!
