Sweet & Sour Pork

3 lbs. country-style pork ribs, in 1 1/2” pieces
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 c. diced celery
1 c. chopped green bell pepper
1 medium size onion, chopped
1/4 c. vinegar
1 c. diced celery
1/2 c. maple syrup
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks (do not drain)
1/3 c. soy sauce

Preheat oven to 400°. Place ribs in large baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce oven temperature to 350°. Remove ribs from pan with slotted spoon. Pour off drippings, leaving about 1/4 cup in pan. Blend flour into the remaining drippings until mixture is smooth. Return meat to pan along with remaining ingredients. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 20 minutes. Serve ribs over rice for sopping up the extra sauce. Makes six servings.
