How to Pick the Perfect Ribs
The quest for rib perfection begins not in the kitchen, but in the grocery store or meat market.
If you head to your grocery store, your meat will likely be shrink-wrapped. That will make it harder to discern the quality of the meat, but you may get a better price.
At a high-end grocer, butcher or meat market, you’ll likely be able to see the ribs in a display without packaging. This is ideal, although you will probably pay a bit more.
Look for a meaty rack with good coverage over the bone. Avoid meat that appears to be off-color or dried out.
While there should be white strands of fat throughout, there should not be huge chunks of surface fat.
Cooking Ribs Indoors
Many think of ribs as a summertime treat, but you can make these keto baked ribs with apple ginger tamari glaze indoors at any time. Winter is a great time to try this baked ribs recipe, as it requires ample oven time.
Remove the membrane on the bone side of the ribs, starting with a knife and then using a paper towel to grip and pull. Left alone, it can block the flavor of the glaze from coming through.
You’ll cook the ribs in a tight aluminum foil package. Heavy-duty works well to seal in moisture.
The ribs will cook low and slow to make them super tender. Here you can find some more detailed instructions on how to cook them.

- Preheat oven to 275 F (135 C) – if your oven doesn’t go to down to this low, then turn it to the lowest temperature it’ll go.
- Rub salt and pepper over the ribs and wrap up tightly with foil. Place the package onto a baking tray and bake on the low temperature in the oven for 3 hours.
- In a blender, blend the applesauce, tamari sauce, olive oil, garlic and ginger together until a puree forms.
- After 3 hours, remove the ribs from the oven and turn up the heat in the oven to 450 F (230 C) or as high as your oven will go.
- Carefully open up the foil so that the ribs are just sitting on top of the foil. Using a brush, cover the ribs with the marinade. Place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the ribs becomes sticky with the marinade.
