You won’t prepare your ribs any other way after trying this method! We slow-cooked the rack in an air-tight parcel of foil at a relatively low oven temperature. Since all the store-bought marinade and bastes are packed with sugar, I developed my own. This is my low-carb marinade (the use of store-bought reduced-sugar ketchup in this recipe makes this dish not strictly keto.), it’s rich and packed with flavour. The recipe calls for 1 rack of ribs between two people – an ideal Saturday night treat for you and your loved one.

(The use of store-bought reduced-sugar ketchup in this recipe makes this dish not strictly keto. Stay tuned though, because I am currently developing a great homemade keto-friendly ketchup!)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 130°C / 265°F.
  2. Use a sharp knife to remove the sliver skin from underside of the rack.
  3. Place the rack of ribs onto a long piece of aluminium foil and season with a little salt. Wrap very tightly in the foil to ensure that no steam escapes. Do not under-estimate that the foil parcel should be 100% airtight. If in doubt, double-wrap. If you may have accidentally pierced the foil, double wrap!
  4. Place the foil-wrapped ribs foil onto a tray and place the tray into the oven for 3 hours.
  5. In the meantime, make the marinade by combining the ketchup, soy sauce, olive oil, mustard, vinegar and the ginger and garlic pastes in a small bowl. Set aside.
  6. After 3 hours, remove the tray from the oven - but do not open the foil for at least 20 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, prepare your braai (BBQ) or grill, or simply increase the oven temperature to max grill.
  8. Carefully remove the ribs from the foil and brush both sides with the marinade. Place the ribs onto the tray and into the oven (or place gently on the BBQ grill) and grill for 7-9 minutes, basting regularly until the ribs have warmed through again and the marinade is sticky.
  9. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
