Course: Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Paleo, Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal
Servings: 6 people


  • 2 racks baby back pork ribs
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not Paleo)
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 120 degrees celsius (250 degrees fahrenheit)
  • Place the ribs meat side down on a cutting board and using a knife, slide it under the membrane covering the back of the ribs and pull it off. 
  • In a bowl whisk together the coconut aminos, vinegar, honey, garlic and pepper. 
  • Place a large piece of tin foil on a baking sheet or large baking dish, place the ribs, meat side down, onto the tin foil and then pour the sauce over top making sure that it coats both sides. 
  • Fold the tin foil up over top of the ribs and pinch together the sides so that the ribs are completely encased in a tin foil "package".  Place the tray in the oven and bake for 2 hours removing from the oven and basting in the sauce ever 30 minutes. 
  • After 2 hours the ribs should be very tender. Turn the heat up to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Flip the ribs over so the meat side is facing up, baste in the sauce and then leave them to cook for 15 minutes uncovered so that the meat browns on top. 
  • Brush the ribs with more sauce before cutting into individual pieces and serving.
