Andrea Chun's Chinese Pork Ribs- Hawaiian Style

3 lbs pork ribs
4 cloves of garlic 9or more- depending how much your family loves garlic)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. vinegar (Andrea uses apple cider vinegar)
1 cup water
1 can pineapple tidbits (or slices, cut into pieces)+ juice
frozen peas

Cut meat into individual ribs. Brown the garlic and the meat. In separate bowl add water, vinegar, pineapple juice, soy sauce and brown sugar and mix well until sugar is all dissolved. Pour over browned ribs and cook in pressure cooker for about 20- 30 minutes or in regular pot for several hours on low heat. When it's all done the meat should fall of the bone or at least slide off of it very easily. If it doesn't it has not cooked long enough yet. Andrea takes the meat off the bones before serving. After all bones are off add frozen peas and the pineapple(which Andrea doesn't add the pineapple she serves it on the side cause her children don't like it). Then you thicken the sauce with some corn starch and water. That is it. Pretty easy but usually a hit.

Tripled recipe for 12 people and had maybe 2 servings left. Also Andrea buys her ribs at costco (pork tenderloin baby back ribs) I have used boneless pork ribs (much cheaper) and they are good.
