I found wonderfully meaty ribs in the meat department of my local health food store. They’re from a family farm and much meatier than some ribs I’ve gotten in the past. Being a butcher’s daughter, I appreciate quality meat.
Before the last fifteen minutes of barbecuing on your outdoor grill or cooking in your oven, brush the ribs with gluten-free barbecue sauce. Not all barbecue sauces are gluten-free. Here are three of our favorites: Bone Suckin’ Sauce and Stubb’s are both not only gluten-free but also they don’t contain high fructose corn syrup. You may prefer Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce Original #7.
If you’re new to a gluten-free diet and you want to determine if a product contains gluten, check labels for gluten-free ingredients. Avoid flour, enriched flour, cereal, malt, stabilizers (gluten can be used as a stabilizer), semolina, durum, and certainly if the label says: contains wheat you’ll want to stay away. If you’re not sure, you may call the telephone number on the label. I’ve done this countless times, right from the grocery store. I’ve found manufacturers most willing to give a quick answer as to whether their product is gluten-free.
I hope you enjoy these dry rubbed ribs. Have a wonderful week.
