Sweet and Sour Spareribs

5 pound pork spareribs cut in serving size pieces
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 cup vinegar
1 cup crushed pineapple, undrained
3/4 cup catsup
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
3 tablespoons soy sauce
salt and pepper

Spread ribs, meaty side up, in a single layer shallow pan. Brown in 425F oven for 20 minutes; drain off fat. Combine remaining ingredients, except salt and pepper, in a saucepan; stir smooth. Cook over medium heat until thick and glossy, stirring constantly. Sprinkle salt and pepper over browned ribs; spoon about half of the sweet sour sauce over meat. Reduce heat to 350F and bake for 45 minutes. Turn ribs; cover with remaining sauce and bake for 30 minutes or more, or until well done. Serves 6.
