A great dinner for the family. A little messy, but that is part of eating spareribs. Finger lickn' good!


  • 5 lb.. pork spareribs cut in serving size pieces
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 Cup vinegar
  • 1 Cup crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 3/4 Cup catsup
  • 3/4 Cup water
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped onions
  • 3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • salt and pepper


  • Spread ribs, meaty side up, in a single layer shallow pan.
  • Brown in 425 F oven for 20 minutes; drain off fat.
  • Combine remaining ingredients, except salt and pepper, in a saucepan; stir smooth.
  • Cook over medium heat until thick and glossy, stirring constantly.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over browned ribs; spoon about half of the sweet sour sauce over meat.
  • Reduce heat to 350F and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Turn ribs, cover with remaining sauce and bake for 30 minutes or more, or until well done.
  • I like to add drained pineapple chunks, as I put them on the table.
  • Adds color & more sweet taste.
