I've had this recipe for quite a while and can't remember if it came from a magazine or on the internet. I do know these ribs are delicious! I usually have to double the recipe for my family because my DH could eat his weight in these ribs. Have plenty of napkins on hand...they're messy. Enjoy!

Fall apart tender sweet sticky ribs! I used garlic chili sauce and skipped the mustard. Added a teaspoon of fresh grated ginger. Lots of leftover sauce. Thanks. Made for ZWT 2011

Lovely ribs in so many ways. Love, love, the pineapple! I followed this exactly, even getting the correct sauce...we ate these so fast, it looked as though nothing was ever on the plate. The aroma is enough to send you into the next county. Thanks, dream! xoxoxo Made for ZWT7

Used 2 racks of baby back ribs, uncut. Made one rack with BBQ sauce & the other with this Hawaiian recipe. Did not use Heinz chili sauce, made my own using Lee Kum Kee's chili garlic sauce which is quite spicy(about 1 heaping TBSP) mixed with ketchup. Also only used 2 tablespoons cornstarch instead of 3 which worked just fine. Let me just say everyone was looking for seconds but unfortunately there was none. This is a keeper for me!!
