My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Fabulous Sweet-and Sour-Pork

Yes, Fabulous!. Lots of sauce and lots of flavor. Serve the ribs over plenty of rice for sopping up the extra sauce.

I replenished my supply of country ribs last week when they were on sale for $1.79 per pound, of course next week they'll be .99 per pound.

This is a great dish for family meals, church suppers, potluck dinners and Southern Funeral Food meals.

Fabulous Sweet-and-Sour-Pork
6-8 servings
Printer Friendly Version

3 pounds country-style pork ribs, cut in 1 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons all-purpose white flour
1 cup diced celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (20-ounces) pineapple chunks in juice (do not drain)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the ribs in a large baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Remove the ribs from the pan with a slotted spoon. Pour off the drippings, leaving about 1/4 cup in the baking pan. Blend the flour into the remaining drippings until the mixture is smooth. Return the meat to the pan, along with the remaining ingredients, and bake 1 1/2 hours, basting every 20 minutes.

Serve and wait for the raves.
