With a sweet and savory sauce that comes together with minimal effort, these autoimmune protocol Applesauce Pork Ribs make for a wonderfully comforting, melt-in-your-mouth protein. While those of you who don’t need to follow the AIP (or have reintroduced nightshades) can feel fee to use tomato sauce instead of my nomato sauce, trust me when I say this recipe is phenomenal either way. Ribs are one of my favorite weeknight meals because they’re so hands off. I can throw them together and stick them in the oven around 3pm, start some sides around 4:30, and have a hot dinner on the table at 5. What’s not to love about that? Plus, the sauce is just sticky enough to flavor the ribs but not so sticky you’re going to be blowing through napkins while you eat. (I always hated how messy ribs were.)
