Deep Fried Pineapple Spareribs

Pat Duran


Found this recipe in one of my old boxes. The paper has turned yellow and is ripped on the bottom- I have it all figured out though.
I haven't made it yet, but with all the deep frying going on nowadays -I thought I would give you a chance to try it out to see if it is a keeper or a reaper.(RIP)

How to Make Deep Fried Pineapple Spareribs


  1. Ribs:
    You can precook the ribs the day before, but the deep-frying and glazing need to be done just before serving time.
    -Heat water to boiling; add vinegar. Add rib pieces; cover until water begins to boil again; uncover and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain. Cool. Mix the Rub.
    Combine ingredients in a big bowl and blend well into a paste. Add ribs and rub around in the sauce, so each piece is well coated.
    Fry rib pieces in deep hot oil (375^) until dark brown. Keep oil very hot while cooking ribs. Use a large pan and fry only a few minutes. Set aside until ready to glaze
    Combine ingredients, except peppers and pineapple, in large pan; heat to boiling. Add meat pieces to hot syrup, cover and simmer 30 minutes,until meat is glazed and tender. Add peppers and pineapple; serve with hot rice or as appetizers.
