These riblets are amazing! Easy to make, but does take some time (1-1.5 hrs). Good with faux cauliflower rice.
Low carb honey garlic riblets
1-2 lbs pork riblets
1 can diet cola (splenda or stevia sweetened)
2 tsp minced garlic/ginger blend
1 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs white vinegar
1 tbs dried onion flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a med sauce pan (do not season with salt until later). Cover and simmer for 45-60mins till pork is tender. Remove cover and reduce the sauce until you have about 1/2 cup of liquid, approx another 15-20 mins. I removed the pork at this point and used a fat separator to remove the excess fat. Adjust seasoning (salt and pepper) and serve riblets with sauce.
I wanted mine to taste a little more “garlicy” so I sprinkled a little garlic powder in the sauce at the end.
