Keto Ribs

Ribs, Coffee, Chocolate & Cherry Tomatoes

These 5 ingredients were the inspiration behind these Keto Ribs. I do the occasional live cooking session on my Youtube channel. There are always fans who want to support the channel and through the superchat feature they pay some money. I always feel like I want t give back something and these folks are asked to give me an ingredient each. Using these ingredients I make a dish on the next live stream. Of course I really had to rack my brains for this recipe given the ingredients.  I’ve seen chocolate used to make Mole and also seen coffee rubbed ribs and steaks. I took those ideas and created this dish. Enjoy!

The Spice Wuss

If you saw the video you would have seen my reaction to the sauce. It’s been a few hours now that I’ve been able to reflect on the dish. I also got to taste the sauce when it was colder and I think I actually did a good job. Frying the ribs in the butter and the sauce kind of works. It’s almost exactly how I make buffalo chicken wings. The butter helps cut the heat from the sauce and that’s exactly what happened here. More sauce if you want it spicy but I think it works great.

I still haven’t used the half of the sauce which I added the peanut butter to but I expect to marinate some chicken in that. Then I will oven roast the chicken. Should be fun. I’ll keep you posted on my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook.

Servings 4 servings


  • 500 grams Pork Ribs
  • 120 grams Onions
  • 10 grams Garlic
  • 100 grams Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 Dried Red Chillies
  • 100 grams 100% Chocolate
  • 1/2 Tbsp Instant Coffee Powder
  • 1 Spring Onion
  • 1/2 Tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Coriander Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as required
  • Butter as required


  • For this recipe we're using a pressure cooker. You can also use a slow cooker/instant pot. Put all ingredients into the pressure cooker except the chocolate and the spring onion. Add water as required. About 250ml should be enough.
  • Pressure cook for 30 minutes on a medium heat till the ribs are super tender. Remove the ribs from the cooker and then blend all the remain ingredients to get a nice thick sauce.
  • Reduce the sauce on the heat for about 10 minutes. Add in the chocolate and cook till it reaches a nice thick consistency. You can add heavy cream if it's super hot, also you can add some butter and even peanut butter. These are all optional.
  • Then cut the ribs and pan fry them in butter with a few spoons of that sauce. Garnish with spring onions and serve.
