Best Keto Pork Ribs

I never used to be a fan of pork

ribs because the strings would get in my teeth and I hate that!

Every birthday for my daughter and husband we would grill 2 racks. I just HAD to find a way to make them more tender!!

So to add in moisture and break down the fibers I slow cook it for 3 hours before grilling it for 20 to 30 minutes.

It literally falls off the bone😋

You will want to make these no fuss ribs for yuppie next barbeque😍

Best Keto Pork Ribs

2 racks of baby back ribs

1 bottle sugar free bbq sauce

1 stick butter

2 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper

Favorite all purpose seasoning (I love Tastefully Simple Steak Seasoning)

Cut ribs in half so that 1 rack will fit in one 9″ x 13″ glass pan.

Preheat oven to 250F.

Melt butter and whisk in garlic powder. Pour half over each rack.

Sprinkle with salt n pepper and all purpose seasoning.

Pour 3 cups of water in the bottom of each pan of ribs.

Cover with foil tightly.

Bake at 250F for 3 hours.

Remove from pan and place on preheated grill.

Brush with sugar free bbq sauce.

Grill for 20 to 30 minutes rotating once or twice during cooking.

Enjoy!


Quick Keto Ranch

I am not usually a person who buys buttermilk. I most often when baking make my own with 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and milk.

So to get the tangy flavor that ranch has WITHOUT buttermilk, just use sour cream!

You can use unsweetened plain almond milk, or substitute 2 tbsp heavy cream + 2 tbsp water.

Quick Keto Ranch Dressing

1 cup Mayonnaise

1/2 cup Sour cream

2 tsp Lemon juice

2 tsp Dried parsley

1 tsp Dried dill

1 tsp Dried chives

1/2 tsp Garlic powder or 3 pressed fresh cloves

1/2 tsp Onion powder

1/2 tsp Sea salt

1/4 tsp Black pepper

1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk or sub 2 tbsp heavy cream + 2 tbsp water.
……

Whisk well. Refrigerate for 1 hour minimum. Lasts 2 weeks. Makes 1 pint.

Keto Chocolate Syrup

I grew up on the famous chocolate syrup that also has a city named after it in Pennsylvania! It is also loaded with sugar.

Yes, I know there is a sugar free one. Not too excited about the ingredients though😣

So in the style of ME, I had to find a way to make it❤

Here ya go!!

It comes out thinner as listed, but decrease the water by 1/4 cup for a thicker version!

KETO CHOCOLATE SYRUP

1 cup water

1/2 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup erithrytol-or- monkfruit

1/2 tsp stevia

Pinch salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Put all in medium saucepan, whisk often until it boils.

Take off heat, Turn down to low. Simmer for 5 min.

Cool then put in jar.

It will thicken as it cools.

Keto Mock Maple Syrup

Since starting keto I have found that there are many different companies catching on and making sugar free versions of the most beloved condiments. Ketchup, dressings and maple syrup.

I have and still do enjoy pancakes and waffles😋 They are the ultimate breakfast, especially when they are keto!

I have tried monkfruit maple syrup topping and walden’s calorie free maple syrup. They are ok. They work for what they are but I think they are too thin.

I figured I could get the ratios right if I tried and I DID!!

There are two odd ingredients in this recipe, one is glucomannon. I have brought it up before and you can get it online. I recommend the NOW brand one. Its a small investment that lasts as you only use a tiny 1/4 to 1/2 tsp per recipe. It is used in my baking mix as well. Its worth it, get some!

The 2nd is Organic Maple Extract. I get both of these online. The extract is not only good for this maple syrup recipe but also for my Keto Breakfast Sandwich recipe and make your own Keto Brown Sugar! I love adding a little to my Keto Pancakes too!

Keto Mock Maple Syrup

3/4 cup water + 2 Tbsp

3 Tbsp erithrytol

1/4 tsp stevia

1 tbsp butter

1/2 tsp maple extract

Pinch salt

1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses

1/4 tsp glucomannon

Put all in a medium saucepan EXCEPT for glucomannon. Bring to boil then sprinkle glucomannon in while whisking briskly.

Turn down to simmer while still whisking. Whisk 1 to 2 minutes until thickened.

Remove from heat and let it cool a little before putting in a jar, or recycled syrup bottle!

Keto Ketchup Recipe

I have been a ketchup lover for a very long time!

Unfortunately even the Organic, vegan, unsweetened ketchups have maltodextrin (corn based) so not completely keto, plus corn is not good for me anyway!

So coming up with a keto ketchup recipe that is quick and easy was a must! So here you are! Keep in mind that as it sits, it gets better as the flavors meld.

So squeeze some on your burger, eggs, keto chicken strips, or whatever you fancy!

KETO KETCHUP

1/2 tsp allspice -or- 7 allspice berries crushed fine

3/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp black pepper

4 pkts stevia

Tiny pinch of ground cloves

Put all in medium bowl.

Whisk well. Makes approximately 24oz.

Enough to fill up a recycled long necked squeeze bottle.

Approx 1g carb per measured tablespoon.
