There’s not a lot of low carb pork recipes on the site. So I’m adding a really simple one for boneless spare ribs. It’s something that can be used as a main dish, an appetizer, or a salad topping.
To cut back on overeating, I’ve started to replace breakfast and an occasional lunch with a low carb protein shake which has helped. And the meals that I do eat consist mainly of a green salad topped with meat.
These easy baked pork ribs are something I made for a quick meal one night. And they made a great salad topping for lunch the next day by slicing them into thin bite size pieces.
I also sliced up a few of the baked boneless pork ribs to put into a vegetable stir fry the next day. My husband loved the stir fry. I just cooked the pork slices with a bag of frozen stir fry mix and some soy sauce seasoning.
Cooking Boneless Pork Ribs
I usually cook ribs in the slow cooker because it makes the meat so tender. The meat just falls off the bone. But I wanted to try baking some boneless ribs.
Today I’m sharing how to cook boneless pork ribs in the oven and it’s super easy. You just spray or line a baking sheet, place the ribs on the prepared pan, season, then bake.
The boneless spare ribs should be fully cooked in about 25 to 30 minutes. The temperature to bake them at is 350°F. You may want to check the meat with a thermometer to ensure it’s done.
How to serve baked pork ribs
Now that you know how to cook boneless pork ribs in the oven, how will you serve them? As an appetizer, main dish, or salad topper?
If you can’t decide, make up a big batch to do all three! That’s the way I like to do it.
With this one recipe, you can have several different meals just from the leftovers. So it’s a great item to include in your meal plan.
As a meal
You can serve the meat with any low carb vegetable. Broccoli and green beans are my family’s favorites. But adding some cheesy zucchini gratin will make an extra special meal.
I also love to cut these up and top them over a salad. It will turn your regular greens into a great meal.
If using these on a salad, just watch the dressing for any sneaky carbs. I top my salads of with oil and vinegar. But sometimes I like to use a creamy blue cheese dressing or a low carb ranch dressing.
