Sweet-and-Sour Country-Style Ribs
This recipe is an interesting variation from the more traditional sweet-and-sour pork.
Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 1 hour 25 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 2½ lbs. boneless, country-style pork ribs
- ¼ cup pineapple juice
- ¼ cup water
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. soy sauce
- 2 tsp. white vinegar
- 2 tsp. cornstarch, dissolved in 3 tsp. water
- Place the ribs in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Place the lid on the saucepan and heat the water to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer the ribs, covered, for about 45 minutes or until tender.
- In a small saucepan, heat the pineapple juice, water, brown sugar, soy sauce, and vinegar over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a boil and stir in the cornstarch and water mixture. Keep the sauce warm on low heat.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. When the ribs are done, place them in a baking dish. Pour sauce over the ribs and bake for 30 minutes, brushing the ribs with the sauce occasionally. Make sure not to overcook the ribs.
