Wonderful ribs with a tangy Polynesian BBQ sauce. The perfect appetizer for your holiday buffet or family meal.
Here’s another great rib recipe that comes my way from my friend Lillian from My Recipe Journey. I’ve been salivating about these since she made them. You can find her recipe right here. Lillian changed it from it’s original and I changed it a bit more LOL!! Her and I are great tweakers!!! We started playing Garlic Poker here because I saw Lillian’s 3 cloves and raised her 2. But you can cut back if you want. It’s just that Lillian and I tend to think if 2 garlic cloves is good, 5 are better, 🙂 but we do understand not everyone is as ga-ga about the pungent bulb as we are.

I made these with regular spare ribs, but I think baby back ribs would work better here. For one, they are less fatty and have more edible meat on them.
The recipe did call for strained baby food peaches, which I did buy but got to thinking it would be cheaper to buy canned sliced peaches in heavy syrup, drain them then just puree them in my Ninja food processor. Next time I will do that. And yes there will be a next time with these because they are just out of this world!
OK for all you RICE COOKER fans–this can be made in the rice cooker!! How you do that is first pop the ribs under the broiler so they brown up a bit, then place the ribs and the sauce in the rice cooker, set it to COOK (the highest heat cycle) and let ‘er rip or rib or whatever. After about 1 hour, they should be done and the sauce should be syrupy. If not, set it to COOK again and check it in 15 minutes.
