I got some lovely pork ribs from my local organic butcher yesterday.  All of the recipes I found seemed to involve sugar, soy sauce, wine, honey and commercial sauces.  I obviously wanted a paleo recipe, so decided to create my own.  I love the combination of orange and ginger, so made a mix which I coated the pork in.

Ginger & Orange Pork Ribs

Yum - you can't beat ribs. Usually hair-raisingly sickly sweet, my paleo version is far healthier - but no less delicious.

  • Baking Tray


  • Pork Ribs
  • Zest of one and half oranges
  • Half a cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • One clove of garlic crushed
  • One teaspoon of basil thyme, parsley & rosemary
  • One and a half teaspoons of ground ginger
  • Salt I'm using Himalayan pink salt at the moment


  • I crushed the garlic clove, and grated the orange peel.  I then mixed the herbs, garlic and orange in the oil.  I coated the ribs in the mixture, then laid them out on a baking tray.  I then cooked the ribs at 180C (350F), for about 45 minutes.
  • Whilst the pork was cooking, I diced and sautéed some bacon, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and onion in coconut oil.
  • Once the pork was thoroughly cooked, I served it with the sautéed veg and bacon.

I really enjoyed this dinner, the orange & ginger flavours went so well with the pork.
