Boneless Country Style Ribs with Chimichurri Pesto and Jicama Slaw

Tender and chock-full of flavor, meet these boneless country style ribs. This fresh, unusual spin on pesto is a bright counterpart to the meaty ribs, while the crunchy, fruity jicama slaw with pear vinaigrette reminds us that spring isn’t too far away! To keep things keto, just omit the jicama slaw and replace with some simple mixed greens.
