At the end of January, Greg and I moved out of our little condo. Now that I’m back in Canada, I’m staying with my Grandma. I’m super grateful that she’s letting me stay here, but for someone who loves to cook and bake, it’s a challenge!
Everything HAS to be gluten free for health issues. Even the slightest bit of cross-contamination could hurt her. Absolutely everything brought into the house needs to be completely gluten free, processed at a gluten free facility. So, this presented a new challenge for me, and it’s one that I’m enjoying to experiment with.
Tonight, I’m surprising her with slow-cooked BBQ ribs! The sauce turned out delicious, so I thought I’d write it down and share it for anyone who might want to try it.
- 1 156mL can of tomato paste
- 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce (brand is The Wizard’s)
- 1/2 of a beef stock cube (brand is GoBIO!)
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 heaping tablespoons of honey
- Splash of lime juice (just a few drops really)
- 1/4 cup of water
- Salt and Pepper
I mixed it all in a bowl, and added salt and pepper as needed! The amounts here are approximate; I like to eyeball things, but this is more or less the amounts that I used. This makes enough to cover one cut of ribs, which is enough for her and I. It’s pretty easy to adjust based on personal preferences.
The ribs themselves have been cooking on low heat in Cola for 4 hours or so now, and I’ll drain the cola out after it’s been about 7-8 hours total. Then, I’ll add the sauce and cook it on high for another hour. The ribs should be fall off the bone tender!
I realize it’s a simple recipe, but for anyone that may need to go gluten free and don’t know where to start, it’s a tasty and quick sauce to make!
