Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs: Paleo and AIP

Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs: Paleo and AIP

Need an Instant Pot?

Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs might be the simplest, yet most pleasing Paleo, AIP recipe I have made to date.

I am a Texan, so I consider myself a BBQ connoisseur (or a snob, depending on your take. HA!). I grew up eating some of the best BBQ in the country and developed a deep love for all things grilled and smokey. MMM . . . grilled and smokey. I might be drooling.

 

Anyway, you may wonder how it’s  possible for a BBQ snob to possibly endorse an Instant Pot rib recipe. I was skeptical as well, my friends, but I am here to tell you- these Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs are delish!

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. Did I mention you only need four ingredients and they cook in 20 minutes?  Plus . . .

You can customize these Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs by utilizing any type of sauce you prefer.

I need my ribs to be Paleo (AIP is even better) so I use Tessamae’s BBQ Sauce (also Whole30 approved when I can find it or KC Natural – Mastodon Paleo AIP BBQ Sauce.   

Both of these sauces are delicious and perfect for Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs. 

If you are not concerned about adhering to Paleo or AIP, you should try my very favorite rubs and sauces from my favorite bbq place:

The Salt Lick, in Driftwood Texas. We love it so much that we had some shipped to our wedding reception in Cooperstown, NY!

The salt Lick today is not the Salt Lick of my youth, as it has gained national recognition from the many celebrities who feature it on their shows on The Food Network, but it is still just as good as I remember it. They ship anywhere, so if you don’t feel like making your own and want to try some delicious, authentic, Texas BBQ, check them out.

I do not use a rub in this ultra simple recipe, but it sure can amp up the flavor!

**Do me a favor, please. If you utilize a rub or special sauce that you love on your Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs, comment below the recipe. I love hearing how people adapt recipes to fit their needs and preferences.

Drinking Vinegar: Your New Favorite Gut Healing Ingredient

Drinking Vinegar: Your New Favorite Gut Healing Ingredient

Drinking vinegar may not sound like something you’d use to create a tasty beverage, but it is destined to become one of your new favorites.

You have probably seen many articles about the benefits of apple cider vinegar, as it has been marketed as a cure-all for quite some time now. Just go to Pinterest or Google it- you will be bombarded with articles touting its many magical powers.

While it is great that it can help control dandruff, dry skin, cholesterol, asthma, and more, what really matters to me is its impact on gut health.  Drinking vinegar is fermented, and therefore contains probiotics.

Probiotics are the good bacteria that benefit our gastrointestinal tract, and our gut health determines our overall well-being.

Supplementing with probiotics (from fermented foods like drinking vinegar) has been shown to boost immune system function, and can even prevent infection.

For those with autoimmunity, boosting immune function, and preventing infection are crucial, especially for those of us taking medications that lower our immune function and make us more susceptible to infection while inhibiting our ability to fight them.

I first heard of drinking vinegar when I saw a recipe online.

What really got my attention was that drinking vinegar has the same healing benefits of Kombucha, which is fermented tea, but without the kombucha taste. Maybe I just haven’t had good kombucha, but I just cannot get on the Kombucha train. I have considered making it, but am a little intimidated (okay, darn right scared) of the “mother” part of it, which is the blob of bacteria and yeast that grow on top while it ferments.

I buy Bragg apple cider vinegar which proudly advertises that it has “the mother” (the floating bits of yeast that make it cloudy), so I am good with that for now.

drinking vinegar health benefitsAfter reading the recipe (you can find it here) I realized I had all of the ingredients I needed on hand, which was awesome, but I was bummed I would have to wait two weeks to taste the results!

It only calls for three ingredients (I chose blueberries as my flavor) but if you want to try this 2-week version you will need a one-quart canning jar, preferably with a plastic lid, because metal does not play well with acid. I learned this the hard way. I used the mason jars I had on hand, and now I have rusty lids.

It was a long wait.

The process involves combining fruit and vinegar in the jar for 7 days at room temperature, straining the fruit out and returning the vinegar to the jar and adding honey, then refrigerating for another 7 days.

drinking vinegar gut health paleowhen I opened the finished product after 14 days, I was worried, because it just smelled like apple cider vinegar, even though it looked nice and dark with a deep blueberry color.

But when I poured my new drinking vinegar into my cup and topped it with my favorite raspberry lime seltzer, I was delighted. It is super refreshing and tangy- not at all earthy, like the kombucha I’ve tried.

 

But two weeks was a long time to wait. I knew there had to be a faster way.

Are you dying to try a drinking vinegar mocktail now?

Thankfully you won’t have to wait two weeks to try gut-healing drinking vinegar!

There are quick versions of drinking vinegars, which are also referred to as Shrubs.

You have a couple of choices:

  1. Buy a drinking vinegar either at your local natural foods store or here (The flavor varieties are truly inspiring. Peach Habanero, anyone?) remember, these are considered mixers, so you only use one ounce at a time.
  2. Make you own

QUICK DIY PALEO HAPPY GUT DRINKING VINEGAR 

drinking vinegar health benefits

Ready?  I bet you have everything you need in your pantry right now.

Plus, when making your own drinking vinegar, the levels of sugar and other ingredients can be controlled to your personal tastes.

To make a drinking vinegar mocktail or shrub, First, you need one large glass of (12-16 ounces) sparkling water (I use flavored, unsweetened seltzer) next you add two tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar. Finally,  the fun part.

The flavor combinations are up to you. To sweeten the drinking vinegar you can add juices, honey, stevia, maple syrup, cinnamon, cayenne, ginger, or turmeric, which has natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. To keep it paleo, stay away from refined sugar, which is used in traditional recipes.

Mix well and enjoy your mocktail!

Let me know what you make! I cannot wait to hear from you.

You will end up with a delicious pile of porky goodness so versatile that you will use it in soups, frittatas, and more. Heck, I sneak it cold paleo instant pot kalua pigright out of the fridge!

Sometimes I toss my Instant Pot Kalua Pig on top of a pile of mashed cauliflower, but I also love it in bib lettuce, taco style. It’s delicious topped with my speedy smooth guacamole.

*If you don’t have an instant pot yet (you will if I have anything to do with it) you can easily make this in the slow cooker (she includes directions for both methods).

I made this in the crockpot initially, but when Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo posted the instant pot instructions I switched over immediately (of course). I love my instant pot. The more I use it, the more I love it, too.  you will probably get sick of hearing about it.

Click here for the recipe (I do not use the garlic she recommends).

Why am I only providing a link and not the entire recipe?

  1. Too often I see the same recipes (the exact same, mind you) with a variation on the name, or maybe a different picture- with each author publishing it as their own. Authors should receive credit for their work.
  2. I like to offer reviews of existing recipes for those like me who pin with reckless abandon, yet fear actually making what they have pinned. That fear of the unknown is debilitating.  I want to offer up recipes that I know are good, whether I create them or not.

Tha being said, I know this one is good. Very good. Do yourself a favor and buy Michelle’s book, get her app, sign up for Real Plans so you can add on her recipe package, and make this recipe as soon as possible. You will thank me, I promise.

Speedy, Smooth Guacamole: AIP Whole30 Paleo

Speedy, Smooth Guacamole: AIP Whole30 Paleo

guacamole Paleo AIP Whole30

I Don’t like avocados, (gasp!) but I love guacamole- especially my smooth, speedy guacamole.  Is that weird?  

The problem lies in the texture.

Sliced or chunked avocado has a mouthfeel a little too much like what I imagine clay would feel like if I were to sample a bit. I won’t eat it in a salad and I pick it out of most dishes, but I could eat guacamole every day.

The difference? I puree it. Texture issue solved.

I am also a guacamole purist. Nothing ruins a good guacamole like adding chopped tomato, onion, or (heaven forbid!) cilantro. I HATE cilantro. I am one of those for whom it tastes like soap. I read this really interesting article about it that is not only informative but also quite vindicating. Ha! I hope the cilantro trend ends soon because a few of our favorite restaurants add it to everything.

All I add to my avocados is lime, salt, and garlic powder. Sometimes I add crushed black pepper (leave this out to keep it AIP compliant).

I toss all of it to a small bowl and attack it with my handy, dandy immersion blender (my second best friend next to my instant pot). If you like a chunky guacamole, simply skip this step.

 

Speedy, Smooth Guacamole: AIP Whole30, Paleo

Ingredients

  • Two Avocados
  • One Lime
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Garlic Powder (to taste)
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) Leave out for AIP

Instructions

  1. Remove flesh from avocado
  2. Squeeze the juice of the lime over the avocado
  3. Puree with an immersion blender
  4. Season to your preference
  5. Enjoy!

There are countless applications for this smooth guacamole, but a couple of my favorites are topping tacos and burgers and as a dip for carrots. Yum!

You will want to keep a few avocados and limes on hand because you never know when a guacamole craving might hit. This is a dip you can feel good about because each serving offers up a nice dose of healthy fat.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do! Let me know.
