Barbecue Pork Ribs

Nothing says backyard barbecue like a plate of ribs. Skip the hassle of hauling out the grill with this oven preparation. Covered in your favorite sugar-free barbecue sauce or served with just the rub, these ribs pair well with Cauliflower Mac and Cheese or cabbage slaw.


  • FOR THE RUB: ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • FOR THE RIBS: 2 pounds baby back pork rib racks
  • Barbecue Sauce, or purchased sugar-free barbecue sauce (optional)


  1. TO MAKE THE RUB: In a blender or food processor, add the olive, garlic, shallot, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and ginger. Mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  2. TO MAKE THE RIBS: On a flat surface, cut the rib racks into quarters and arrange on a baking sheet. Cover the ribs evenly with the rub, massaging it into the meat. Refrigerate the ribs to marinate for at least 4 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  4. Place the ribs in the oven. Cook for 1 hour, 10 minutes
  5. Remove the ribs from the oven. Allow them to cool for 2 to 3 minutes before slicing
