This past weekend, we were in the mood for ribs, but tired of the slow cooker “lazy” version. Since we finally had some time to kill, I found this recipe and tried my best to “paleoize” it. I had some pineapple juice leftover from one we just sliced up and used it to baste the ribs. The results were delish.
1 Rack Pork Ribs
A few Tbsp fresh pineapple juice
2 Tbsp paprika
1 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp celery salt
1T Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp cumin (I was a bit heavy handed with the cumin, but it was goood)
1. Preheat oven to 250. Mix seasonings.
2. Baste ribs with juice, rub seasoning mix on both sides. (a smarter or more patient cook would prep this a day early and let it sit…I am neither)
3. Place ribs in oven for an hour, flip, and bake another hour.
4. Increase oven temp to 400 and leave in for an additional 30 minutes (or finish over a grill to crisp).
The results were fantastic. While it was nowhere near as good as properly smoked, fall-off-the-bone ribs, they were pretty satisfying and absolutely paleo and Whole 30 compliant.
