Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 -6 lbs baby back ribs
  • Polynesian Sauce

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen pineapple concentrate, thawed
  • 12 cup apricot nectar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar


  1. Place ribs in large shallow baking pan, curved side up.
  2. Add 2 cups boiling water. Cover tightly with foil. Bake in preheated 400°oven for 30 minutes. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Polynesian Sauce. Place cornstarch in small saucepan. Gradually stir in juice concentrate until smooth.
  4. Note: I think apricot nectar has been removed from the juice aisle because of high sugar. I have found smaller cans in the Mexican food aisle.
  5. Stir in apricot nectar, soy sauce and vinegar. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened.
  6. To bake ribs: Place precooked ribs in large shallow baking pan. Brush with sauce. Bake in preheated 300° oven, about 1 hour, basting occasionally with sauce, turning ribs over every 15 minutes.
