Hawaiian Spare Ribs

Living in Buffalo, New York was not the most exotic place in the world. To treat us, mom would have us pretend we were at a luau in Hawaii. Never having been there, I can’t tell you if they serve spare ribs in this manner, but dad and I sure enjoyed the make believe and the spare ribs!
2 lbs. Spareribs, cut into 1-rib sections
2 tbls brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
2 tbls Heinz vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c. Heinz Catsup
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1 small onion, quartered
2 tbls. Shortening
1 medium green pepper, cut into 1” squares
1 can (9 oz.) pineapple chunks or tidbits
Shake spareribs in paper bag with flour, salt and pepper. Brown with shortening in skillet. Drain pineapple, retain juice; add water to make 1 1/4 cups. Combine with sugar, vinegar, catsup and onion; pour over spare ribs. Cover; simmer 1 hour 15 minutes, basting occasionally, until meat is tender.
Add green pepper and pineapple; simmer 5 minutes or until green pepper is tender. Remove excess fat. Makes 4 servings.
