This is one of my son’s favorite dishes and I make it several times a month for him. He is 7 and already loves to get in the kitchen and cook with me. I love teaching him how to cook.
It will be a great comfort knowing he can cook a healthy meal for himself when he moves out (getting teary-eyed just thinking of that). Not to mention what a blessing he will be to his future wife when he can help with the cooking, right? Your welcome ladies!
While this dish is simple enough to get your children involved, it is not simple on flavor. The flavors are reminiscent of some of the Asian pork dishes, so I enjoy serving it with my Cauliflower Fried Rice or some stir-fried veggies.
This tasty dish is low carb and Keto friendly and it falls into the “S” Category for the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan.
I like to use country-style pork ribs for this recipe but you can use bone-in pork chops. If you don’t eat pork try beef ribs or chicken. For my family of three, I start with 2-3 lbs of the boneless country ribs. This makes plenty for our dinner with nice leftovers for our lunches the next couple of days.
If you have a larger family this recipe is easily doubled or even tripled. Some nights I make a double batch and freeze one part for another night. To do that just add your uncooked protein and all the other ingredients in a large freezer bag. Make sure the meat all gets cover in the liquid by massaging it around.

Tips for Making or Freezing These Sesame Ginger Boneless Ribs:
- If your ribs do not brown up nicely in the oven then simply use the broiler for a few minutes until you see the caramelization. Note: The ribs will not caramelize if using the crockpot.
- If you are sensitive to salt or prefer to use less of the liquid aminos, then please take the liberty to adjust the amounts to your liking. This is an adaptable recipe.
- 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. Then freeze.
- Cooking from freezer: 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.
A flavorful Asian Inspired recipe for country style pork ribs. These ribs are delicious and will be family pleaser.
- 2 lbs. of country style ribs
- 1/2 cup Coconut Amino or Braggs
- 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Tbsps. 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" (your favorite brand)
- 2 cloves chopped or grated garlic
- 2-3 green onions, chopped, for garnish or topping
- Place the country style ribs into a large bowl or a plastic bag.
- Mix together all the other ingredients in a bowl. Taste as you go with this mixture and adjust the taste to your liking.
- Pour the liquid mixture over the 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.
- Once the ribs have marinated remove them from the container and place them on a long baking sheet or dish. Reserve the liquid.
- Place them into a preheated 375 degree oven and bake them for 20 minutes.
- As the ribs bake pour the reserved marinade into a smalls sauce pan and bring it slowly to a boil over medium low heat. It is important to boil the sauce for at least 5 minutes to cook it thoroughly.
- After the ribs have cooked for 20 minutes slowly drizzle some of the cooked sauce over the top of the ribs and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
- Note: Pork needs to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees to be consumed safely.
- Before serving you can sprinkle the dish with some toasted sesame seeds and more chopped green onions if you want.
I am a southern girl through and through that loves to laugh, cook, read and spend time with family. My passions outside of home schooling my son are ministering to those in need and creating art in the kitchen! Every day is an adventure in our little house and I wouldn’t trade it or the chance to share here with you for anything!
