Easy Amazing Keto Asian Style Ribs

This recipe is geared to be keto-friendly, mainly by replacing brown sugar with Swerve brown sugar and substituting Sriracha for ketchup, which has 4x less sugar than ketchup. This recipe also calls for Braggs Aminos, instead of soy sauce.

Easy Keto Asian Style Ribs is prep intensive, so make sure you leave plenty of time to prep, marinate, and slow cook in the oven. I’ve also done this exact recipe using an Air Fryer, but the cooking times are vastly different.

Delicious Keto Friendly Asian Style Ribs that’s easy to make, just add a little it of time! This recipe is for a full rack (usually 13 ribs). If you have smaller serving, adjust accordingly.


  • 3⁄4 Cup Swerve Brown Sugar

  • 1⁄2 Cup Braggs Aminos

  • 1⁄2 Cup Sriracha (* sub ketchup)

  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil

  • 1/2 tsp White pepper (black pepper is okay too)

  • 1⁄4 Cup white cooking wine

  • 1 tps Gingerroot, grated

  • 2 racks of baby-back pork ribs

  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced (or 2 Tbs Garlic Powder)


  • Prep
  • Make the marinade: Combine Aminos, Ginger, Sesame Oil, Sriracha, Brown Sugar, White Cooking Wine and Garlic. Mix well and save half in another container, we’ll use it later to baste the ribs while it’s cooking.
  • Trim ribs (optional): If you want to trim up the ribs a bit so the smaller parts don’t burn in the oven, do that before your baste the ribs. I personally don’t do this, but I know people that like to clean up the ribs a bit before baking.
  • Prep the ribs: Take 1/2 of the marinade and liberally baste the ribs. Make sure to cover the ribs as much as possible. Set ribs aside for at least 60 minutes, covered. I let mine marinate for 2 hours.keto-friendly-asian-style-ribs-baste
  • Make
  • Pre-Heat Oven 225F (107C )& take out the ribs.
  • Once the over is heated to temperatue, place the ribs in the oven (middle rack) uncovered. You’ll cook the ribs for about 3 1/2 Hours to 4 Hours.
  • Every hour, baste the ribs again with the marinade you made earlier. Keep basting until the ribs are cooked.
  • Cut the ribs individually and enjoy!keto-friendly-asian-style-ribs-beans-close


  • * Some ketchup brands are not keto friendly due to added sugars.

Pork Ribs & The Farmer’s Market

We get our pork products exclusively from a local family farmer called Zanzenberg Farm, here in San Antonio, TX. We’ve made hundreds of amazing dishes using their meats and I always feel the need to mention them because it’s so good.

Emily & I huge fans of sustainable farming, so anytime we can plug one of our vendors we do so. Our meat vendors are not affiliates of any kind, we just support local growers.

Every time we make a dish from one of our farmers, we always try to make the best dish possible to pay our respect to the animal that died so we can share an amazing meal with our family & friend.

Ribs & Green Beans

We also get fresh vegetables from our vendors, since San Antonio has a relatively warm climate, we enjoy fresh produce all year round. One of our vendors also a climate-controlled hydroponic farm, they sell fresh leafy greens all year as well.

This is to say we are extremely lucky to have access to such amazing farmers while living in the city.
