In this recipe, a combination of sweet pineapple and honey with spicy chili sauce makes a special sauce for lean back ribs. Round out the meal with some creamy garlic mashed potatoes and a fresh garden salad and you've got a dinner that's going to shine -- in the middle of the week or anytime! If you want to reduce the amount of fat in this recipe, simply make the ribs a day ahead of time and refrigerate overnight. In the evening, skim the fat from the top of the ribs and warm through.
