These oven baked ribs take the stress out of preparing rib meat. It took less than 5 minutes to get ready, and then the ribs were simply placed in the oven and left alone to slowly cook over 7-8 hours. Easy! Once the ribs are ready, the meat is so succulent and tender that it simply falls apart when you touch it gently with a fork. It’s comfort food that’s naturally paleo, gluten-free, and keto — and anything left over makes for delicious meal prep the next day or two.

Oven baked ribs are a versatile main dish. They pair well with keto-friendly mashed cauliflower or zoodles, but they would also taste wonderful with paleo coleslaw or mashed sweet potatoes.
