AIP Baked Honey Ginger Pork Ribs Recipe
Sticky and sweet ribs that are cooked low and slow for fall-off-the-bone goodness. These AIP baked honey ginger pork ribs pair nicely with salad, or try another of my refreshing side dish suggestions.
Modifications for an AIP Diet
Your traditional barbeque sauce probably has some inflammatory ingredients lurking in it. Typically you’ll find plenty of sugars – brown sugar, white sugar, molasses – and paprika and chili powder might be on the menu as well.
You want to keep the sweetness that pairs really well with the meat, but there’s a better way to go about it.
For these ribs, I used applesauce, honey and coconut aminos to dial up the sweetness.
On the Side
A lot of the foods you may be used to eating with ribs are not going to fly on an AIP diet. While you don’t want to be eating macaroni and cheese or potato salad (sorry), there are a lot of options that are just as tasty, and a lot better for you.
Here are some ideas:
Those are a few suggestions, but you could also whip up an easy salad. Cool, crisp lettuce goes really nicely with ribs.
It’s nice to balance something light with the heaviness of the ribs. You don’t want to be sluggish and full the rest of the day!
- 1 rack pork ribs (15.5 oz / 440 g)
- 2 Tablespoons of honey (30 ml)
- 2 Tablespoons of applesauce (30 ml)
- 2 Tablespoons of coconut aminos (30 ml)
- 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon (5 g) fresh ginger, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- Salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 275°F / 135°C.
- Rub salt over the ribs.
- Roll out a long piece of aluminium foil. Grease it and place the ribs onto it. Wrap the foil tightly around the rack of ribs to ensure that no air can escape at all. Place onto a tray and cook in the oven for 3 hours.
- Whisk the honey, applesauce, coconut aminos, olive oil, garlic and ginger together in a bowl. After 3 hours, remove the ribs from the oven and increase the heat of the oven to max.
- Allow the foil parcel to cool slightly before opening it up completely to expose the ribs. Use a pastry brush to brush the marinade on the rack of ribs and place back into the oven for 3-5 minutes until the glaze has become sticky.
