Tender Fall off the Bones Ribs
Ribs – beef or Pork (I used Pork)
Spices of your choice
Low Carb BBQ sauce or any store brand (Your Choice)
First I made a spice rub mixture. You can use what you like but I used:
Squeeze of Lime JuiceNext, rub the spice mixture into the ribs and refrigerate – the longer it sits the more flavor you will have but if you choose you can cook right away
Wrap the ribs tightly in aluminum foil before refrigerating/cooking
I baked mine at 300 degrees for 3 hours
I added my Low Carb BBQ sauce (recipe to follow) and turned on the broiler for 3 minutes
Low Carb BBQ Sauce
3/8 cup vinegar
1 1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard
3/4 tablespoon Franks Hot Sauce
3/4 tablespoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper. Go easy if you don’t like spicey!!!!
3 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
6 teaspoons Stevia or 18 drops of Liquid Stevia
Add vinegar and all other ingredients except mustard to a saucepan and slowly heat. Put mustard in a cup and slowly stir in a couple tablespoons of sauce until well blended. Then add mustard mixture back to sauce in the pan.
Bring to a boil, and lower heat. Simmer for a few minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate.
Note: this sauce will taste a bit peculiar if you taste it when it is still hot. Don’t worry! Something magical happens when it sits in the fridge.
