  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Trim most of the fat from ribs. Arrange ribs in the bottom of a 12-inch Dutch oven.
  3. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Sprinkle bell pepper, onions and pineapple evenly over ribs.
  4. In a large bowl stir together the remaining ingredients including the reserved pineapple juice and pour over ribs.
  5. Cover Dutch oven and bake for 2 hours or until ribs are tender. Turn and baste ribs in oven juices carefully every 1/2 hour.
