KETO LAZY APPLE BUTTER RIBS
On the occasion I enjoy Keto Lazy Apple Butter Ribs. Pork ribs are one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I absolutely LOVE ribs! For this reason, I’m always hunting for different, interesting, or even classic dry rub and sauce recipes to switch it up for Shawn and me. While day-tripping to nowhere, but everywhere, Shawn and I found this little smoked rib joint not far from our home. I broke away from my strict Keto lifestyle, and enjoyed the apple butter ribs. They are Keto Lazy — over 10 net carbs per meal, but under 20 net carbs. Classic apple butter is loaded with sugar – besides the natural sugar from the apples.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LAZY APPLE BUTTER RIBS?
Let’s talk wine with Keto Lazy Apple Butter Ribs. With the predominant taste sensation being sweetness from the apple butter, you’ll need to pair these delicious ribs with a crisp, white wine with excellent acidity and sweetness to match. Remember if the dish is sweeter than the wine, the wine will taste like paint thinner.
In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up carbs on a glass of sweet wine, especially when we can enjoy zero carb wine! So you have a couple of options. Drink whatever you like and don’t worry about pairing the wine to the apple butter sweetness. And by the way, the sweetness is subtle as the savory ribs also take center stage. But there is still sweetness to consider.
If you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine. Add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit to your glass of white wine. Choose a fruity white with this added sweetness to pair with the apple butter sweetness.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
