Sweet and Sour Ribs

4-6 lbs country-style ribs                                  1/2 cup frozen concentrated orange juice
salt and pepper to taste                                     1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)                           2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch                                             1 (15 1/4 oz) can crushed pineapple w/juice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger                                1 small onion sliced
1 cup water

Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper, wrap in foil totally seal.  Place in shallow pan. Bake for 1 hour @ 350*. While ribs are cooking.
In medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch and ginger. Gradually add water stirring until smooth. Add orange juice, vinegar,soy sauce and pineapple with juice. Mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened and clear. Note: orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted.

Remove ribs from oven. Unwrap ribs and drain off liquid. Place ribs bake in pan (13x9) cover with sliced onion. Pour sauce over ribs. Return to oven uncovered. Continue to bake @ 350* for another hour to hour and a half. Serve with your favorite sides. I like wild rice.

Hey I really like your method of getting the ribs tender. I pre-boil which helps remove a lot of fat, but I guess you also lose some flavour. I am going to try this method along with some of your ideas like the soy sauce, cider vinegar and pineapple. I would appreciate your take on some of my recipes/methods?
