These babies right here have no grains at all, and they are pretty much the best ribs I’ve ever had. The secret? A good gluten free red wine or BEER! Yes, BEER! This is the perfect excuse to go pick up a six-pick of gluten-free beer, and enjoy a nice cold one with these paleo beef ribs while you’re at it! On that note, try some brussels sprouts alongside your ribs or some healthy mashed turnips to even out the meal.
When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease (you can find out more about this disease and about all sorts of things, including really helpful paleo pointers and baking tips in my paleo tips), I was disappointed and shocked to find out how many sauces contained gluten as an ingredient! I was like, “Come on! Does the gluten really make that much of a difference in the sauce?” Well, no! For this reason I was very motivated to create this low carb, grain-free and of course gluten free Paleo Beef Ribs dish!
And if you’re wondering whether or not you can have alcohol on the paleo diet, make sure to check out my Which Paleo Diet page on my website to find out more about the different paleo diets that are out there! Enjoy!
