Paleo Asian Pork Ribs over Tangy Slaw
For the pork ribs--
  • 1 gallon sized ziploc bag
  • 2lbs pork ribs
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (or liquid aminos or wheat free soy sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
For the asian slaw:
  • 1 bag broccoli slaw (or coleslaw)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ⅔ cup almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey (raw tastes so much better!!)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (I used ginger powder, but freshly grated would be even better!)
  • 1 tablespoon siracha
  • 1 teaspoon coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chicken stock or water to help thin it out
  1. Ribs gotta be marinated. They just have to. So buy these a day early, stop complaining, and marinate them overnight. It's worth it, ok?
  2. So grab your large ziploc bag, throw the ribs in it along with the rest of the ribs ingredients. Zip up the bag and shake that biotch up. Really rub all the ingredients all over the ribs. Don't be shy. Let the ribs rest in the ziploc bag, in the fridge, overnight.
  3. The next day, pull those happy lil' ribs out of the fridge to let sit on the counter and come to room temperature before you cook those suckers.
  4. While they are resting, you will begin to get your slaw together. Pull out a large skillet and add your coconut oil to the pan over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the oil is hot, add your broccoli slaw along with all other ingredients and stir together until you get a even coat around the slaw. If it is a bit thick, add a tablespoon or two of water or chicken stock to help break it up. Add as many as needed until you have the desired consistency for your slaw.
  6. Once the slaw is at a desired consistency, turn the heat down low to cook while your get your ribs ready.
  7. For your ribs, first cut them into separate ribs, then pull out a dutch oven or large pot. Once they have browned, add your slaw on top along with a bit more chicken stock or water to make sure the ribs don't burn on the bottom.
  8. Cover and reduce heat to let simmer for 25-30 minutes, depending how thick your ribs are.
  9. Once the ribs are cooked through, eat them with the slaw. So good.
