Ingredients
  • Ribs:
  • 3 pounds baby back ribs, cut into 3- to 4-rib sections
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 carrot, thickly sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, thickly sliced
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • One 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced thick
  • Sauce:
  • 1 cup canned pineapple juice
  • 1 cup chicken stock or broth
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced chile pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • Oil, for brushing
Directions
  • Place the ribs in a large pot, cover with cold water and add the salt, carrot, celery, onion, garlic and ginger. Bring the ribs to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the ribs are very tender but not completely falling off the bone, about 45 minutes.

  • While ribs are cooking, make the sauce. Combine the pineapple juice, chicken stock, brown sugar, hoisin, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, chile, Worcestershire sauce and 1 of the green onions in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until thickened.

  • Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.

  • Drain the ribs and discard the vegetables and ginger. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the ribs on the baking sheet and brush them with oil.

  • Brush the sauce on the ribs and grill, brushing on more sauce occasionally, until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the ribs to a platter, brush once more with the sauce, scatter with the remaining green onion and serve.
