Pork Loin Ribs with Keto BBQ Sauce

Pork Loin Ribs with Keto BBQ Sauce

Fasting meal? This will get you covered!

Pork Lion Ribs:
  • 3 racks (8.15 lbs) pork loin back ribs
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon southwest seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons liquid smoke
  • 1 ½ cups Char-Broil Mesquite Smoking Chips

  • Keto BBQ Sauce:
  • ½ cup sugar-free ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire
  • ½ teaspoon Mrs. Dash Table Blend
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • How to prepare:
    1. Preheat your oven to 225F. We’re going to cook them until almost done, and then impart flavor and texture on the grill.
    2. Start off by removing the silverskin on the pork loin back ribs. The easiest way I found to do this was to dig your finger under the middle of the silverskin, and then pull it back. It will remove in 1 piece.
    3. Season your ribs well. I used 3 Tbsp. Salt, 3 Tbsp. Pepper, 1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder, 1 Tbsp. Southwest Seasoning, and 3 Tbsp. Liquid Smoke between all 3 racks. Make sure you season both sides.
    4. Put the ribs into a large baking pan and cover it with foil. Bake them for 2 hours in the oven.
    5. Once the 2 hours is up, turn your oven up to 250F and continue cooking for 2 more hours.
    6. When they’re done, they will look cooked but look plain.
    7. Mix together 1/2 Cup Ketchup, 1 Tbsp. Hot Sauce, 2 tsp. Yellow Mustard, 1 tsp. Liquid Smoke, 1 tsp. Worcestershire, 1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Table Blend, 1/2 tsp. Chili Powder, 1/2 tsp. Cumin, and 1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper. This will give you your BBQ sauce.
    8. Start soaking your wood chips. I am using Char-Broil Mesquite Smoking Chips.
    9. Create 3 “foil trays” out of some aluminum foil. Rest the ribs in the center of the trays.
    10. Brush your ribs well with the BBQ sauce. I am using a silicon basting brush to do this – it really comes in handy. Make sure you brush both sides of the ribs.
    11. Add your smoke chips to your smoke box. I’m using the Brinkman Cast Iron Smoke Box. I’ve had it for nearly 5 years now and it’s served me really well.
    12. Put all your ribs and the smoke box on the grill. You want to have a medium-high heat over the smoke box, but no heat over the ribs. Smoke these for at least 60 minutes.
    13. Once the ribs are finished smoking, turn up your heat under the ribs. Cook them on each side for about 10 minutes, basting sauce if you’d like. I save my sauce for the end.
    14. Once the ribs are done they should have changed color completely – now looking like actual ribs. Let them rest for about 5-10 minutes.
    15. Cut them up and dish them out, slather with remaining sauce (I had about half the sauce left).

    Per serving (that’s 4 meaty ribs) you’re looking at: 785 Calories, 62.1g Fats, 1.5g Net Carbs, and 56g Protein. Yeah, I know it’s a little calorie dense but treats like this every once in a while really make it worth it.
