Sticky ribs come out tender and delicious with no pre-boiling involved. Just mix up the sauce and bake. Everyone loves them! You can bake right away or prepare ahead and let them marinate in this sauce for a while first.

  • Stir pineapple, jam, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl; pour over ribs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, basting every 15 minutes, until ribs are glazed and pull away easily from the bone, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

09.17.16 What a great dish! This recipe was so delicious and easy to make. I had a package of boneless ribs in the freezer and they worked great for this recipe. The sauce does come out sticky just as the title states. We had homemade rolls 'Cran-Broccoli Salad' 'Buttery New Potatoes with Leeks and Parsley' and 'Rhubarb-Raspberry Crunch' to go with the ribs. All the recipes are found on AR. We had an awesome meal. Thanks SUNKIST2 for sharing your recipe. It will be used again. Read More

Can easily be converted to work with your Instant Pot. Delicious ribs! I cooked the ribs first in the Instant Pot. Put the cooked ribs on a cookie sheet. Added the pineapple sauce over the ribs. Baked at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Read More

I haven’t made them yet but i always bake ribs at 250 as I found that temp makes them the most tender. I will try it that way then increase to 400 for last 20 mins to caramelize the sauce. Also if you line the baking dish with foil first, clean up is so easy! Read More

Great recipe I was afraid the sauce would be too sweet but it was perfect. Made the sauce exactly as stated in recipe. However I cooked this in the slow cooker about 6 hours on low since I know for sure it will fall off the bone that way. Once done I removed the ribs and placed the sauce in a pan skimmed off the fat and boiled it for about 30 minutes to thicken up. Then added some cornstarch slurry to really thicken it up and poured back over the ribs. Will definitely make again. Read More

This was a very simple recipe in spite of a long list of ingredients. I have made the sauce an entire 24 hours ahead of time refrigerated and then spread it over the ribs prior to baking. If you follow the time instructions your ribs will come out juicy tender and delicious. I have tried broiling them for the last 5 minutes to give them a crusty top and that seems to make a good dish even better. Great recipe thank you. Read More
