Don’t let the word pineapple throw you off from making these absolutely delicious bbq ribs! You won’t even taste the pineapple in this dish after it bakes, but what a difference it makes in the meat! These ribs were a hit at a wedding…And the woman who catered the wedding happens to be a close friend of my mom. She shared the recipe of these tender ribs with my mother and here I am sharing it with you today. This recipe is so fast to prep as you’re literally tossing a few ingredients together in the same pot and letting them do their thing while baking. I have made bbq ribs various times but this is my ultimate favorite, not to mention how nice your house will smell while these bake away. I use big pork spare ribs for this recipe and I kid you not these come out so tender and juicy you probably wouldn’t have guessed what kind of meat it was. The flavors meld in all so well and not only creates tender ribs but leaves an aroma that will boast up your appetite in no time. Serve these with Whipped Cream Cheese & Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes to complete your meal. A must try!
