BBQ Ribs Redux: Healthier Recipe

Opt for lean cuts of pork or beef ribs. Trim off excess fat to reduce calorie content without sacrificing taste.

Lean Meat Choice

Create a marinade using low-sodium soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic, and a touch of honey. This mixture enhances the flavor while keeping the dish healthy.

Marinade Magic

Use a dry rub made of paprika, chili powder, cumin, and a pinch of brown sugar. Spices add depth and richness without extra calories.

Spice It Up

Slow-cook the ribs in a preheated oven at 275°F for 2-3 hours. This method ensures the ribs are tender and juicy without needing excess fat.

Slow Cook for Tenderness

Finish the ribs on the grill for a smoky flavor. Brush with a homemade BBQ sauce made from tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, and spices for a tangy finish.

Grill to Finish

Serve with a side of grilled vegetables or a fresh summer salad. These sides add nutrients and balance to your meal.
