KETO KOREAN SHORT RIBS

Korean food isn’t my first go to but these ribs changed my mind. This amazing recipe is fall of the bone tender and literally melt in your mouth. This Korean beef has a lot of flavor with garlic, ginger, and a slightly sweet sauce. All the ingredients fior these Korean-style short ribs can be found at grocery stores and not only at Asian markets.

INGREDIENTS

  • BEEF SHORT RIBS – You can use bone-in beef ribs or boneless. It’s just a preference. Short ribs can be a tough cut of meat so the best way to make it tender is to cook is slow and for a long time. This cut of beef is not the same as country-style ribs.
  • GINGER
  • GARLIC
  • KETO BROWN SUGAR
  • SESAME OIL
  • LOW-SODIUM SOY SAUCE – gives the sauce a savory flavor and compliments the sweetness of the sauce.
  • BEEF BROTH
  • XANTHUM GUM – the original recipe uses cornstarch but to make it Keto-friendly we use xanthum gum to thicken the sauce.
  • SESAME SEEDS
  • GREEN ONIONS – for the best flavor I like what these add.
