When I was a kid and my mom asked what meal I wanted to have for my birthday, often I'd ask for ribs. She made really good ones. I tried slow cooking these for about three and a half hours and they turned out fabulous. For the ketchup I used homemade so the flavor was deep and sweet.
The ribs were very tender. Absolutely no refined sugar was used here. The sweetness comes from honey, coconut sugar, and the brown rice syrup used in the ketchup. There are also lots of good spices and onion in this. Recipe from the Simply Sugar and Gluten Free cookbook.
