Easy Tender Low Carb BBQ Ribs

I like ribs where the meat falls off the bone, but is also char grilled a bit.  Pre-boiling your ribs is the easiest way to get that tender meat. Then you can finish them off on the BBQ grill to get that great added flavor.

Ribs (1 – 2 Slabs)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons salt
1 onion cut into wadges

Your favorite low carb barbecue sauce (optional)

(1) Place ribs, seasoning and onion in a large pot with enough water to cover them. Season the water with garlic powder, black pepper and salt.
(2) Bring water to a boil, and cook ribs until tender about 45 minutes to an hour.
(3) Brush ribs with BBQ sauce (if desired) and grill a few minutes per side until browned to your liking.

You can also make tender BBQ chicken this same way
