How To Make A Healthy Fall Off The Bone Ribs Recipe In The Oven


Cook Tender and Meaty Braised Healthy Short Ribs On Game Day

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you how to make a healthy fall off the bone ribs recipe in the oven.

Welcome back to the kitchen Live Lean Nation.

Even though this incredible recipe is not going to be very quick, I promise it’s going to be absolutely delicious.

But don’t worry, all you need to do earlier in the day is pre-heat the oven, chop a few vegetables, throw the ingredients together, then cook it in the oven for a few hours.

We’re making a Live Lean style, healthy fall of the bone ribs recipe.

Trust me, this is a perfect game day meal, especially if it’s football Sunday.

That’s right, I’m showing you how to take a delicious, but often unhealthy meal, and Live Lean-ifying it with healthy ingredients.

Once these ribs are in the oven, it’s going to make your home smell absolutely delicious.

You’re also going to have tender and meaty braised short ribs for the big game.

Plus, since the ribs take 3-4 hours to bake, you’ll have plenty of time to go get your squats in.

Side note: if you want to see what Jessica and I did during the 3-4 hour baking period, go check out this video that I posted on our second vlog YouTube channel, BradGouthroTV, where we did 10 sets of crazy squats.

Are you ready for some short ribs?

As always, all the ingredients in this recipe are 5 star, Live Lean approved.

This is what you should be feeding your body to Live Lean.

Here are the ingredients we’re going to use to make these fall off the bone ribs.

Healthy Fall Off The Bone Ribs Recipe
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil to a pre-heated frying pan over medium to high heat.
  3. The first step before searing the ribs in the frying pan, and eventually cooking them in the oven, is to season one side with a few dashes of black pepper and sea salt.
  4. Once the coconut oil is heated in the frying pan, add a dash of black pepper to the pan. Adding seasoning to an oily pan is a little trick that adds more flavor to the food.
  5. Add the seasoned side of the ribs to the pre-heated frying pan. You want to make sure you hear a sizzle once the ribs hit the pan.
  6. Once all the ribs are added to the pan, season the other side with more black pepper and a dash of sea salt.
  7. Keep a close eye as you sear the ribs on one side for approximately 4-6 minutes, then once they are nice and brown, flip them over and cook for another 4-6 minutes. After searing, remove from the heat and place them to the side in a roasting pan.
  8. Clean the frying pan, then add 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Once the coconut oil is melted, add 2 cloves of diced garlic, and 1/4 cup red wine. This will smell so delicious.
  9. Add 3 sprigs of fresh thyme. Feel free to pull a few of the leaves off, then add the entire sprig to the pan and let it set for approximately 30 seconds.
  10. After 30 seconds, pour the liquid over the ribs in the roasting pan.
  11. In the same frying pan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp of coconut oil, 1/4 cup of red wine, 1/2 cup beef broth, just under 1/4 cup tamari sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, lastly 1 tbsp honey. Heat this up until all the liquids and honey are mixed together. This sauce mixture will be used to braise the ribs.
  12. Before adding the sauce mixture to the ribs, add the following vegetables to the roasting pan: 1 chopped onion, 5 chopped crimini mushrooms, 2 peeled chopped carrots, 2 tbsp chopped ginger, 1 diced garlic clove, and 1 chopped jalepeno pepper.
  13. In the roasting pan, mix 1 tbsp horseradish and 1 tbsp of black peppercorns with the vegetables and ribs.
  14. Pour the sauce mixture evenly over all of the ribs and vegetables.
  15. Last thing to do is cover the roasting pan with tin foil, then stick it in the 350F pre-heated oven.
  16. Set your timer for 3 hours, go get in some squats, but be sure to check it approximately every hour.
  17. After approximately 3-4 hours of baking, check to see if the ribs are done. Once you touch the ribs with your fork, it should simply just break a part and fall off the bone.
  18. After removing the ribs from the oven, you could let it set for 30 minutes. This allows for all the juices and flavors to combine with the ribs and vegetables. But if you're starving, like we were, and the ribs are already falling off the bone, you can eat it right away.
  19. Add a couple ribs and a bunch of vegetables to your plate and enjoy.

Depending on how big you are, this ribs recipe makes 2-3 servings, so you should have some leftovers.

The only thing that is left to do is get a forkful of short ribs, add a piece of carrot, and give it a taste.

Trust me, it’s absolutely and incredibly delicious and “damn that’s good” approved.

Even though short ribs tend to be a tough type of meat, when you cook it slow and long like this recipe, the short ribs just fall off the bone and breaks a part in your mouth.

  1. I made this today, but had to tweak some ingredients around (I couldn’t
    find tamari sauce so had to use soy sauce instead). But in the end it was
    really yummy. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. is there a reason because you use the short ribs instead of the classic
    back ribs? or just because you prefer the taste of those?
