Homemade ribs are delicious and very easy to make. We like ours with sweet juicy pineapple and a fresh summery salad. Feel free to pop some garlic bread in the oven, to soak up the sweet goodness.

  1. Add all marinade ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth. Place ribs in a deep oven-proof dish and pour marinade over. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Roast ribs for 60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes. After 30 minutes turn the ribs, add ½ cup of water to the pan and cover with tinfoil (optional), then roast for the remaining 30 minutes, until cooked & golden brown (the pork juices should run clear when cooked).
  3. Mix salad dressing together and season with salt and pepper. Toss salad ingredients with dressing.
  4. Serve delicious pineapple ribs with fresh salad and garlic bread (optional).
