    Amy in Hawaii's Note:

    I got this recipe from my friend Gail Yamanaka. It uses country style spare ribs in a Chinese style sweet and sour sauce.

      I haven't cooked spare ribs in so long that I followed this recipe almost exactly. I added a few Star of Anise to give it a more Chinese flavor and used a larger can of pineapples. "ONO" as we say in Hawaii.
