Got to say these are really good and the pineapple does give them a different taste. Please let me know what you think.

These were good. I had pineapple/mango preserves which tasted great as well. Simple recipe with great results. Thanks for posting!

YUM! What an easy, low-maintenance way to prepare delicious ribs! After a total of 2 hrs of baking, I rearranged the ribs so the ones on the bottom were exposed, baked about 30 mins longer - all were carmelized and they were so tender but not completely falling off the bone. The pineapple sauce is delicious, sticky and fun.
