There’s nothing quite so primal as locking your gnashers round ribs… As an added bonus, ribs are dead cheap too – which is always a bonus when you’re following a low-carb diet.
Most ribs usually come accompanied by a really sticky sauce – which means it probably has a lot of added sugar. but then without that sauce they wouldn’t be so nice, hmm? Anyway, here’s an easy-peasy, low-carb version which also uses the slow cooker.
- Rack of pork ribs (about 600-800g)
- 100ml water
- 2tbsp cider vinegar
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 2tsp Canderel
- 1 onion
- 200g passata
Mix together the water, vinegar, passata and soy sauce. Season the ribs with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker. Pour over the sauce and top with the onions.
Cook on the low setting for seven hours. Remove from the slow cooker. Place the sauce in a saucepan with the onions and bring back to a simmer.
Liquidise to get a smooth-ish sauce and add the Canderel. Pour over the ribs to serve.
Allow about 8-10g carbs per serving.
