Low Carb Fall Off the Bone Ribs

This post contains affiliate links including Amazon affiliate links.

I work all day in an office.  When I come home I want to eat like a princess:D  That is where the slow cooker comes into play.  When I made the pulled pork I realized I haven’t utilized my slow cooker in ages.  Now I’m on a rampage to slow cook everything.  I tried beef, that recipe was a failure.  I tried ribs = success.  I’ve fallen in love all over again with my slow cooker.  This is a reunion that is not going to end!

This “man food” is suitable for princesses like me.  Let the slow cooker do all the work.

Make it Paleo – Barbecue Sauce Recipe
From page 306

  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil (I used extra virgin coconut oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chipotle seasoning *I didn’t have this spice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cup of chicken broth *I used 1 cup of salted reduced store bought chicken broth and ¼ cup of water
  • Juice of 1.5 limes *I used 3 tbsp of bottled lime juice
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup ~ optional *I didn’t use
  • 6 oz can of tomato paste ~ no salt *I used 1 cup of ground tomatoes


  1. On medium heat, sauté the garlic, shallots using the cooking fat, until soft and translucent.
  2. Add mustard, smoked paprika, chipotle, cumin, and salt.  Continue to sauté for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the chicken broth, lime juice, maple syrup, and tomato paste.
  4. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth.
  5. Bring the sauce to a light boil and reduce to simmer, and slightly cover with a lid.
  6. Simmer for 45 minutes, and let cool.  *Instead, I kept the sauce on med-high, and continued to boil without the lid on.  My sauce was very thick within 15-20 minutes.
