Sooo sticky and good, if youre kids don't love these, they are beyond help lol. Enjoy this BBQ recipe with potato salad and other BBQ salads ;-)
- sticky pineapple pork ribs
- 3 racks pork spareribs
- 3 cups pineapple juice
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup honey, warmed
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cracked pepper
- 3⁄4 cup good-quality barbecue sauce, plus more for serving
- Lay each rack on a chopping board upside down. Using a very sharp paring knife, carefully remove the membrane that runs underneath. Using a tea towel, hold one corner of the ribs firmly, and pull the membrane sheet off in one long strip (hopefully!).
- Place the rib racks in a large non-metallic dish – you may need to split them into two dishes.
- Whisk all marinade ingredients together and when the marinade is completely cool, pour over the pork ribs.
- Cover the ribs tightly in cling film and let marinate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
- If using a charcoal barbecue, organize it for indirect grilling - two small piles of hot charcoal on either side of the barbecue with a drip pan made from aluminum foil in the centre.
- If you are using a gas grill, set the grill on medium heat.
- Place the ribs in the middle of the barbecue, away from direct heat.
- Close the lid of the barbecue and leave the vents open for 1 ½ hours. Turn the ribs after 40 minutes. Baste them every 20 minutes with the remaining marinade.
- The ribs are ready when the meat has shrunk back away from the end of the bones. Slice between the bones and serve slathered in extra barbecue sauce.
Instead of grilling these, I baked them in the oven for 3 hours. First hour with just salt, pepper and garlic powder. Second hour with the basting of the sauce. The final hour, another basting.
Turned out great and "fall-off-the bone" tender.
Wow great ribs. Sweet and delicious!
I made this for the AUs/NZ Swap #38. It was easy to make and so delicious. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
