Deliciously sticky pork ribs with Chinese 5-spice – definitely made to be eaten with your hands!


  • 1 rack (450 g) of baby back pork ribs (approximately 1 lb)
  • 1/2 medium onion (55 g), peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon (5 g) of garlic paste
  • 1 Tablespoon (5 g) of ginger paste
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) of chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon (1 g) of Chinese five spice seasoning
  • 2 green onions (10 g), sliced to garnish


  1. Place the rack of pork ribs into a slow cooker. You may have to halve the rack to fit.
  2. Add the onions, garlic paste, ginger paste, and chicken broth. If the ribs aren’t completely covered, add a little more broth until covered.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
  4. Remove the ribs and cover with foil to stay warm. Set aside.
  5. Transfer the onions and stock from the slow cooker to a clean pan on the stove. Use a hand blender to blitz well (or use a food processor to blitz then transfer to pan on the stove), then add the tamari and Chinese 5-spice. Reduce the mixture over moderately high heat until thick and jammy.
  6. Taste the marinade and if you feel it would benefit with a bit of sweetness, stir in a pinch of erythritol.
  7. Brush this marinade over the warm ribs and garnish with sliced green onions.
