Makes 4 servings

Prep: 10 min.
Marinate: 1 hr.
Grill: 1-1/2 to 2 hrs.


  • 1 - can (20 ounces) Crushed Pineapple

  • 3/4 - cup honey, divided

  • 1/2 -cup rice wine vinegar

  • 1/4 - cup soy sauce

  • 1 - teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 - teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 - whole rack fresh pork spareribs (about 4-1/2 lb), cut into 2-rib portions

  • 1/2 - teaspoon salt

  • 1 - teaspoon pepper

  • 1 - cup ketchup

  • 1/2 - cup water

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 to 2 - Tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. Drain juice from pineapple into large shallow glass dish; reserve crushed pineapple for the sauce. 

  2. Stir in 1/4 cup honey, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic powder. 

  3. Add spareribs; turn to coat. Cover and, turning once, refrigerate overnight.

If using gas grill: Heat to medium then turn off one side or center burner. 

If using charcoal grill: Remove grate on grill, light coals; burn until red-hot. Arrange hot coals in 2 mounds on opposite sides of grill leaving a space in between. Continue to burn coals until covered with gray ash. 

Fit a disposable aluminum drip pan in center of the grill between the coals, place grate on grill.

  1. Remove ribs from marinade and discard marinade. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper.  Place on turned-off side of grill or over drip pan. Cover and, turning occasionally, grill, adjusting heat (or adding hot coals) as needed, until ribs are browned, sizzling, and very tender, 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours.

  2. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, mix ketchup, water, onion, chili powder, reserved crushed pineapple, and 1/2 cup honey. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Lower heat and cook, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until flavors are blended. 

  3. Let cool slightly, then puree until smooth in food processor or blender. Stir in the cilantro.  Brush spareribs generously with sauce and grill about 5 minutes, turning and basting until glazed. Transfer to a clean platter. Serve spareribs with the remaining sauce.
