Really good recipe. I put it in the slow cooker after letting the meat marinade for an hour. I think the time in the slow cooker really helped. Meat was very tender and full of flavor. Added cornstarch to thicken sause and served over rice. Very Good!!!!

This recipe sounded so good, but my Family really disliked it. I ended up taking the ribs out of the cooking liquid, put them in a new baking dish and covered them with our favorite BBQ sauce so we could eat them.

Absolutely delicious! The sweet and sour combination is fantastic, especially with the heat that comes from the chili sauce. I actually made them in the crockpot. First I browned the ribs in the olive oil and then dumped them into my crockpot with all of the other ingredients, cooked for about 4 hours on low and they turned out PERFECT. These ribs were such a hit the first time I made them, I've made them several times since.

Wow! 2 thumbs up! This was a delicious meal! I wasnt sure at first, but the results were D-LICIOUS! I wasnt sure how hot the chili sauce would be and wanted it to be ok for my husband so I only added about 1/3 cup instead of the 1/2 cup it'd asked, but we couldnt taste the chili at all so it went great. I did try using crushed pineapples like others recommended, but I didnt have a preference, but husband would of prefer the chunky afterwards. Since it was very stewey, which, at first I was not sure about, but was GREATLY surprised by the results, I'd made jasmine rice to compliment it. I highly recommend having the ribs and its sauce served over white jasmine rice for a complete delicious meal! You will not be disappointed with this dish! I'm a beginner in cooking and this is a definate keeper in my recipe drawer! Thanks Adrienne!

I have made this delicious recipe several times and always get '2 thumbs up' from hubby and son. It is one of our very favourites. I use a Thai chile sauce and use less then the 1/2 cup the recipe calls for. Give it a try as you will not be disappointed.

very good. I think it would have been better if the ribs soaked for at least an hour in the cold marinade then baked for the 2 hours. long process but worth the wait. like a soaked in sweet/sour taste.

I let the ribs soak in the sauce for an hour before cooking as recommended in a prior rating. Time consuming recipe since I had to make my own chili sauce but I have to tip my hat, great recipe overall. Thanks, will make again!

We all just love it!! I wasn't sure if I was suppose to add the juice of the pineapple, but I did. I also added the whole jar of chili sauce. Splashed some vinegar into it too. At the end of baking,I stirred in some cornstarch mixed with a little cold water. Served over white rice.
