3 pounds country-style pork ribs, cut in 1 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons all-purpose white flour
1 cup diced celery
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (20-ounces) pineapple chunks in juice (do not drain)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the ribs in a large baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Remove the ribs from the pan with a slotted spoon. Pour off the drippings, leaving about 1/4 cup in the baking pan. Blend the flour into the remaining drippings until the mixture is smooth. Return the meat to the pan, along with the remaining ingredients, and bake 1 1/2 hours, basting every 20 minutes.

Serve and wait for the raves.
