Units Scale
  • 2 lbs country style pork ribs (boneless)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon habanero pepper, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (I used Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups chicken stock

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol

  1. Season the pork generously with salt and pepper.
  2. In a heavy bottomed saute pan, sear the pork on all sides until golden brown.
  3. Remove the pork from the pan and place it in a crockpot.
  4. Add the garlic, onion, habanero, olive oil and peanut butter to the pan you cooked the pork in.
  5. Cook for a minute or two, or until your onions are translucent.
  6. Add the white wine and cook down for about one minute.
  7. Add the water, stock, ground cardamom, ground allspice, sugar substitute, and pumpkin puree and whisk until smooth.
  8. Bring to a simmer, then pour over the pork in the crockpot.
  9. Cook for 4 hours on high, or until the pork is tender and falling apart.
  10. Remove any fatty bits and break the pork up into bite sized pieces with a fork.
  11. Stir in the lime juice just before serving, and adjust seasoning for salty or sweet to your preference.
  12. Serve over riced cauliflower and garnish with lots of fresh cilantro and chopped peanuts.
