Huli Grilled Ribs
1 full slab pork ribs, thin membrane removed
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon minced ginger or ginger paste
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 fresh pineapple, chunked or sliced
In a medium saucepan whisk together ketchup, soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic.
Cut slab in half.
Pour 1/2 of the mixture in a large Ziploc bag and add the split slab. Reserve the remainder of the sauce for basting.
Place the Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours. Turn every 1/2 hour to marinate well.
Preheat the grill to 225 degrees.
Cook ribs over indirect heat for 2-3 hours. Baste, flip, and rotate the slab every 20-30 minutes.
Place pineapple over direct heat. Grill pineapple for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until heated through and grill marks appear.
