Enchanting Chilli & Pineapple Spare-ribs

Forget the local Chinese; this Asian Delight is a real grill-star of the Orient and I got the idea for this dish at, believe it or not a pub on Lantau Island. Simple to both prepare and BBQ, these ribs taste great being, sweet, sour and spicy all at the same time!
