Paleo Curried Boneless Pork Ribs

There are two things my husband loves more than anything else in the world:  pork and curry.  I have no idea why I never thought to make a pork curry before now!  It is healthy (yes, healthy!) simple and delicious.  It is also filling, satisfying, inexpensive, and makes fantastic leftovers.  What else could you want in a home cooked meal?  I made my curry in a bean pot like the one's you can find here.  You could also use a dutch oven if you have one.  Don't have a thing like it?  Use a crock pot... but you may find you need to reduce the juices at the end by boiling them over the stove because they probably won't be as rich and thick as you need to make the curry gravy.  I hope you and your family truly enjoy this as much as we did.  Happy cooking!

Rich and delicious
5lbs boneless pork ribs
2 onions, chopped
1c vegetable or beef broth
3tbs butter
2tbs curry powder
2tsp garlic powder
2tsp ground ginger
2tbs red curry paste
2tsp cayenne pepper
2tsp corriander
2tsp cumin
1tsp salt
1 can full fat coconut milk
chopped cilantro (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325F.  Salt and pepper pork generously and place pork in a bean pot or dutch oven.  In a medium bowl, mix broth, coconut milk, curry, garlic, ginger, paste, cayenne, coriander, cumin, and salt.  Pour over the pork.  Top with onions and pats of butter.
2. Bake in the oven covered for 4 hours or until the ribs are tender.
3. Serve with cilantro on top.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot directions:
Alternatively you can cook this meal in the slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours or on high for about 6 hours.  Follow step 1 and then just use your slow cooker instead of the oven.  You may need to pour out the juices and boil them down to a rich sauce if it comes out too watery.
