  • Be sure to make our Baking Keto Cajun Seasoning Blend and our Sticky BBQ Sauce. You can make these ahead of time. Store BBQ sauce in the fridge until ready to use. 
  • Pull ribs out of fridge 1 hours before baking. Pat dry with paper towels. Lay out on parchment paper. Season both sides with our cajun seasoning. Coat lightly and rub in to coat evenly. Allow to sit for 1 hour to come to room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Place our sticky BBQ sauce in a saucepan, add 1/4 cup tamari (optional), and simmer for about 8 minutes.
  • Brush a light coat of the BBQ sauce onto ribs.
  • Place in large baking pan. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.
  • Turn heat up to 350 degrees F, remove foil, bake uncovered for approximately 35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and we hope you enjoy.


Be sure to come back and let us know how the recipe worked for you. Every oven can be a little different so play around with it but this is an excellent foundation. We did not find our high altitude affected this recipe.
*We rubbed our ribs with butter when they came out of the oven! Fabulous!! Remember to add this into your macros, as it is not included in our macro totals for this recipe.
