Pineapple spareribs

My friend Lalala is always cooking something that appeals to me; sometimes it's a comfort food that reminds me of my childhood and moms cooking.   Other times it's a dish that grabs my interest as the Asian influence is always appealing to me. Its all of the time healthy and yummy.

Check out her east meets west recipes and helpful instructions with pics here

Although i've tried several of Lalala's recipes this time i remembered to take a couple pics.  It was delicious even with variations as hubby brought uncut ribs, and we already had regular soy sauce - he said he couldn't find the low sodium kind.....he gives me this or the "they didn't have it" story whenever he forgets something.  And then i couldn't find the cast iron pan, and never have had a dutch oven so i made do and they turned out great on the stovetop, and so easy. 

metric so not sure; about 2 lbs i think
Brown well
add small can of crushed pineapple
3 hours later.....even for a non-cook this was so easy and yummy
Thanks Lalala!
now, whats for dessert?

Just_ because_today yes, it was so easy even i managed to pull it off with a few wrong ingredients. Of course it would be healthier to use the low sodium soy sauce. Lalalas recipe calls for 1 cup but because mine was reg. i used less than maybe 1/4 cup. I had only drinking wine, not cooking wine so that was another substitution; and easy blending flour from a little shaker con'tr because i'm a wimp who dosn't bake.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my Hawaii vacation post.

Your dinner looks very good. I believe it could be cooked in a slow cooker as well.
