    "These ribs are freaking fantastic!" - a direct quote from my fiance. I think the trick for tender ribs is the indirect heat cooking method. The only changes I made were using pineapple juice concentrate instead of juice (intensifies the flavor) and I added more garlic and fresh chopped ginger to the marinade. Holy , these were good!!! We are both serious carnivores and I would be proud to serve these at any celebration. Thank you so much!!!  -  02 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is really a fantastic alternative to BBQ pork. We loved it. I didn't actually marinate it, though. I made the sauce and dumped everything in my crockpot on High. The pork was super tender and moist and had a great flavor.  -  28 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good ribs. This is the first time I had ever eaten ribs with anything but BBQ sauce on them and it was a very nice change. The ribs were moist and flavorful. I only marinated mine for about five hours, but they were still really good. The wine and rosemary were a really nice change to the flavor. I am thinking I may try marinading pork chops this way. I will keep in mind for the next time I want something a little different.  -  14 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
