Quick and Healthy: Hotter Ribs

It might be a day late, but in honor of the Superbowl this week, here is a hot wing recipe.  These…were…absolutely…glorious!  The other day at the foreign import store, we found what looked to be a paleo-friendly wing-sauce, but I was worried the flavor would only be so-so.  Looks like I worried for nothing as it worked like a charm and tasted fantastic!  Couldn’t have been happier.  Tender meat with a little bit of a kick.  I’ll post pics of the sauce and wings below, as well as the recipe.

Ribs hot out of the...Japanese steam microwave oven?

What you Need:

  • Ribs (as many or as little as you like.  We each had 6 big ones, so a set of 12 between the 2 of us.)
  • World Famous Wing Sauce (Hotter) [or, make your own Paleo marinade and share it with the rest of us!] Picture below.
  • Aluminum Foil


  1. Put the ribs in a ziploc or tubberware along with a healthy dash of the wing sauce and let them marinate in the fridge overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Line a cake pan/baking pan with aluminum foil (with enough on the sides that it can fold over on top) and pour about 1/4 inch of water into the bottom of the pan.
  3. Place the ribs with the arch (concave) facing down on the sheet, and cook for an hour.
  4. Take the ribs out, up the heat to 375 degrees, and open the top of the foil before putting the ribs back in to finish cooking for another 10 minutes.

Note:  These are great with the sweet potato-pumpkin souffle!

The key to making this into a lifestyle and not just a diet is finding easy ways of doing things.  Could I make up my own buffalo wing sauce recipe?  Yes.  Will I always have the time to?  No.  Finding products that are minimally processed and made out of good, wholesome foods is a great way to cut down on time spent in the kitchen on busy days.


What are your favorite Super Bowl foods?  Could you make a more paleo-friendly (and therefore health and gut-friendly) version of them?  What are some paleo-friendly products that you like to use?

Enjoy, and stay healthy everybody!
