Pineapple Pork Ribs

I thawed a pack of baby back ribs Saturday night with plans to cook Loslos for next day’s lunch. Crunchy breaded ribs, steamed rice and ketchup…I was so looking forward to a fantastic meal. And then, of course, I opened my pantry and boo-hoo! I only had about an inch of oil left, definitely not enough for deep-frying. Don’t ya just hate it when that happens? I debated about doing a quick run to the grocery store but in the end, I decided to prepare my ribs freestyle and just threw in whatever handy ingredients I had into the pot. Yey! Thank God for creativity because these pineapple pork ribs were the bomb! Sweet, tangy and delicious, they’re a delightful dish the whole family is sure to love. Enjoy!
