Why I Love This Recipe

These from our holiday family potluck - and it is a good thing that they are small because we end up with so much to choose from you want to try everything. If you want to leave the rib pieces bigger you can, but I think the smaller pieces make them easier to eat


Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs spareribs – have butcher cut into 1 inch pieces
½ c cornstarch
¼ c Canola oil
1 garlic clove, smashed
1 onion, diced and carmelized
1 can pineapple chunks, drained

sauce
¾ c sugar
½ c apple cider vinegar
¼ c molasses
½ c soy sauce
1 c pineapple juice


Directions

Parboil spareribs until meat shrinks from the bone and drain well


Coat all pieces with cornstarch very well


Cook garlic in oil until just browned, then remove


Brown sparerib pieces over medium heat


Remove sparerib pieces and pour off excess oil


Combine all sauce ingredients in pan and simmer for about 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved


Add ribs back to sauce, tossing to cover, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes


Add caramelized onions and pineapple, cooking for another 5 minutes
