Instant Pot Ribs with White Barbecue Sauce

Instant Pot Ribs with White Barbecue Sauce

Baby back ribs are a barbecue staple. There are many ways to prepare them, but the general rule is to cook them low and slow to achieve tender, fall-off-the bone meat that’s full of flavor. And unless you own an outdoor smoker, that usually means cooking ribs for several hours in the oven on low heat. But who wants to heat up the oven for hours at a time when it’s 100 degrees outside? I turned to my Instant Pot to create a rib recipe that turns out tender, flavorful, ribs in a fraction of ...

Keto Beef Wellington

Looking to surprise your significant other or friends and family with a fancy feast, but don’t know what to make? Me too. One dish I see at pricey restaurants is Beef Wellington. A seared tenderloin, wrapped in puff pastry and stuffed with pate. I’ve decided to attempt a low-carb version. The one thing about this recipe is that it’s a little costly depending on what meat you get. I bought 2 tenderloin steaks (also known as filet mignon), which was around 20 dollars. It’s worth buying a ...

Carbonara is an Italian staple. While you may not be able to have the delicious carby version, you can definitely make a similar keto kind! For this recipe, you will need shiritaki noodles. You can find them in the grocery store alongside the tofu. If you can’t find it, don’t fret! You can also use zucchini noodles, cucumber noodles, or even Palmini noodles (although, that’s a bit pricey.) One trick with carbonara is you have to follow the recipe to a ‘T.’ If you don’t, you could end ...
