After buying some tamarind concentrate to make my crying tiger steak recipe, I used up some more to make a delicious low carb tamarind sauce. But I had more leftover, and was inspired by this Honey Tamarind Ribs recipe to make my own low carb version! The original version was cooked on the grill, but on the day I came to cook the ribs it was SO hot outside, that I decided to roast them in the oven instead. 

Tamarind has a strong flavor and I have balanced it with some sugar free honey. The combination works so well with these oven-roasted pork ribs! Oh and here's how to make the honey – or where to buy it!

How to Make Low Carb Pork Ribs with a Tamarind Glaze

Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane covering the bones of the ribs (if necessary) and removing any excess fat. Place on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack.

Make the glaze by combining low carb honey, tamarind concentrate, soy sauce, and ginger paste together in a bowl.

Roast in a preheated oven for 2½ – 3 hours or until they have reached an internal temperature of at least 175F. Brush the remaining marinade onto the ribs.
