low FODMAP sticky ribs

  • Author: Amy Agur

  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


These low FODMAP sticky ribs will be a weeknight favourite in no time!


  • 2 racks pork back ribs
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup low salt soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


  1. Remove the membrane from your ribs and cut each rack in half (so they fit in your slow cooker).
  2. Combine the cayenne, ginger, paprika, and salt together in a small bowl and rub the mixture all over your ribs. Pop the ribs in your slow cooker.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and mix until the brown sugar has dissolved. Pour the sauce over the ribs in the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 – 10 hours. 
  4. Once the ribs are done, preheat your broiler for 10 minutes. While the broiler is preheating, strain the liquid from your slow cooker into a large frying pan (discard the fat). Boil the sauce for about 10 minutes to thicken it up, then brush it over the ribs. 
  5. Stick the ribs on a baking sheet lined with foil and broil until the ribs begin to sizzle. Serve warm.
