HOW TO MAKE THEM! AND YES IT IS EASY!

Cooking this simple pork rib recipe this way gives you a tender rib every time.  

By simply pouring boiling water over instantly seals the meat and gets them off to a flying start in the slow cooker.  

Add the sauce later or baste as you go, gives you that beautiful sticky consistency you can so clearly see in the pictures.

For the method to cook the keto rib recipe I have included both oven or crockpot method, plus a method for a Thermomix pork ribs recipe too.

PREPARING THE RIBS FIRST

  • Preheat oven to 160℃.
  • Boil 2-3 cups of water. Chop ribs into sections of 3-4 ribs. Place in crockpot or deep baking pan. Cover in boiling water and lid (or foil)
  • Slow bake ribs for 2 ½ hours or until meat is soft and tender

BASTING SAUCE – THERMOMIX® METHOD

  • Add oil, onion, garlic and ginger to mixer bowl. Chop 5 seconds/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  • Add Chinese five-spice. Cook 4 minutes/80℃/speed 1
  • Add remaining ingredients. Cook 6 minutes/80℃/speed 1
  • Puree sauce 1 minute/gradual speed up to speed 7.
  • Repeat as needed. Reserve

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Finely dice onion, garlic and ginger. Heat oil in a small frypan over medium heat and sauté onion, garlic and ginger until translucent. Add Chinese five-spice and cook until fragrant.
  • Add remaining ingredients and cook, stirring until sauce thickens.
  • Pour water out of crockpot and cover ribs in the sticky baste
  • Cook for further 30 minutes or until ribs are sticky. This can be done in the oven or on a barbecue grill.
