Spare Ribs With Pineapple BBQ Sauce
St. Kitts – Nevis, West Indies
October 03, 2009
This recipe comes from the Harbour View Guest House and Restaurant in St. Kitts. Alas, I fear that this charming place is now gone.
1 Lb. spare ribs
½ Cup fresh pineapple juice
1½ Cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 Cup crushed pineapple
1 Small onion, chopped
2 Bay leaves
1 Tsp freshly chopped thyme
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
For the Sauce:
Mix barbecue sauce with the pineapple juice, and crushed pineapple.
For the ribs:
Parboil ribs with onion, bay leaves, thyme, salt & pepper. Drain water, then dip spare ribs, one at a time into the sauce. Put on sheet rack then into a 350° F oven for 5-10 minutes. Take out and glaze with remaining sauce and serve.
Note: I prefer to finish the ribs over indirect coals on the grill, rather than the oven.
