Bring a Touch of the Islands to the Dinner Table

Try Polynesian-style ribs and enjoy a change from standard barbecue pork.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a plate of regular barbecue ribs, but, if you want to try something a little different, Polynesian-style ribs may be just the thing.

These ribs cook in a crock pot. If you like preparing your ribs another way, go right ahead and just toss them in the Polynesian sauce. I don't normally cook ribs in the crock pot, but this worked out pretty well. I think this sauce would also be good on a pork roast (those I do cook in the crock pot).

So, fire up the Tiki torches, mix up a Mai Tai and enjoy a mini luau this weekend with Polynesian-style ribs.


2 pounds boneless, country-style pork ribs

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1 small onion, chopped

1 6-ounce can of pineapple juice

1 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple, drained

3/4 cup ketchup

3 tbsp. brown sugar

3 tbsp. hoisin sauce

1/4 tsp. ground ginger 

Hot cooked rice if desired


Place ribs, garlic powder, onion and pineapple juice in crock pot. Cook on low heat for eight hours.

In a large bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, hoisin sauce, ginger powder and crushed pineapple. Toss cooked ribs in sauce. Serve with rice.
