One of the things I’ve discovered traveling through Southeast Asia is that many of the delicious traditional recipes are often Paleo and AIP (often without intending to be) or can be made so very easily.
STEP 1: Chop up your shallots and lemongrass into large chunks. Slice the galangal into thick slices.
STEP 2: Place the pork spare ribs into a large pot of water and boil for 10 minutes. Pour out the liquid with the froth.
STEP 3: Pour approx. 8 cups of new water into the pot with the ribs, and add in the shallots, lemongrass, galangal, and salt.
STEP 4: Simmer on low heat with the lid on (so you don’t lose all the great soup) for 1 hour. Check the ribs are tender, then add in the kaffir lime leaves, (chilis if you want it spicy and if you’re not on AIP), fish sauce, the juice from 1 lime, and salt to taste.
