Sesame Ginger Boneless Ribs

F & L Market has Country Pork Ribs for $1.69 a pound. This is a delicious recipe to add to your weekly menu.
  • 2 lbs of country style ribs
  • 1/2 cup Tahini soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 Tbsp of toasted sesame seeds for garnish before serving
  • 2 Tbsp Liquid Ginger (or 1 tsp dry spice)
  • 2 Tbsp Low Carb “Brown Sugar” or regular
  • 2 cloves chopped or grated garlic
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped
Note: I suggest mixing your marinade ingredients and tasting as you go. Start by adding 1 Tablespoon of your sweetener and adjust with more if desired.
Instructions
  1. Place your country style ribs into a large bowl or a plastic bag.
  2. Mix together all the other ingredients in a bowl. Taste as you go with this mixture and adjust the taste to your liking.
  3. Pour your mixture over your ribs and make sure they are all coated before placing them in the fridge to marinade for at least 30 minutes. The longer they chill out in the mixture the better they will be.
  4. Once you are ready to prepare the ribs, remove them from the container and place them on a long baking sheet or dish. Reserve your marinade for the basting sauce.
  5. Place them into a preheated 375 degree oven and bake them for 20 minutes.
  6. As your ribs bake pour your reserved marinade into a smalls sauce pan and bring it slowly to a boil over medium low heat. Boil your sauce for 5 minutes and turn off the heat.
  7. After the ribs have cooked for 20 minutes you can drizzle the sauce over the top of the ribs and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Pork needs to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees to be consumed safely.
  8. Before serving you can sprinkle the dish with some toasted sesame seeds and more chopped green onions if you want.
For the Freezer Meal Option: Place your pork into a large freezer bag. Mix together your marinade in a bowl and then pour it into the bag over the meat. Seal the bag with as little air inside as possible and toss the meat around in marinade so it is all cover. Let the meat sit int he fridge for about 30 minutes and then toss again before freezing. I suggest thawing in the fridge the day before cooking and then placing at meal in a baking dish. Bake the meal at 375 for about 40 minutes. If you want to add a little color you can broil them for the last 2-3 minutes of cooing. You can also cook this dish in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for about 6 hours. My family prefers the oven method but the slow cooker is great for hands off cooking. Also instapot with a finish in the air fryer works great!
