I came home one night hungry for ribs. I really didn't want to make them as they take so long and take out just seemed out of the question. Then, I remembered a stovetop  rib recipe a friend put together and went for it. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. You won't be either.

[wpinsertshortcodead id="pgypi60b189d6e468e"]

  • 1 1/2 pound (3/4 kilo) pork ribs
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil for frying
  • 1/2 small chopped onion
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 medium tomato sliced into thin wedges
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (You can use your choice of bbq sauce too if you like.)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup marble cheese, grated
  1. Add the ribs to a bowl followed by the pineapple juice, soy sauce, and pepper. Mix until well combined. I usually let them sit for a few minutes, but you can leave them overnight for best results.

  2. Add the oil to a pan over medium high heat. Put the ribs in and fry them on both sides until you get a nice sear and colour. Set them aside on a plate. 

  3. In the same pan, add in the onion, garlic, and tomatoes. Stir and saute until the garlic becomes fragrant.

  4. Put the ketchup in followed by the marinate and water. Stir until well combined and bring to a boil. 

  5. Add the ribs back in, reduce the heat, place a lid on, and allow it to simmer for about 15 or 20 minutes until the ribs are tender.

  6. Add in the bell pepper, peas, and cheese. Stir until well combined and allow to simmer for an additional 5 or 10 minutes. 

  7. Plate and top with some extra grated cheese (which is completely optional), serve, and enjoy.
