"This recipe does wonders for pork ribs. My mother made it when I was a child, and now I make it for my family. This recipe is very rich but very filling. It goes great with mashed potatoes!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, and pineapple. Stir in brown sugar, cornstarch, salt, and ginger. Cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Arrange a layer of spareribs in a roasting pan. Pour half of the sauce over the top. Arrange another layer of spareribs, and top with remaining sauce. Cover pan tightly with foil.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven until done, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
