  • 1 pound pork spareribs

  • 5 tablespoons water

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced pineapple


  1. Cut ribs into small pieces.

  2. Heat a medium nonstick pot over medium-high heat. Sear ribs in the hot pot on all sides, about 5 minutes.

  3. Whisk water, vinegar, sugar, both soy sauces, and wine together in a small bowl. Pour over ribs and reduce heat to medium-low. Add pineapple rings. Let stew until liquid evaporates and ribs are tender, about 1 hour. Don't let all the sauce dry up completely.
