Cut ribs into serving-size pieces and place in large pot. Cover with water and add vinegar. Bring to boil and simmer 1 hour, drain.

Make marinade of soya sauce, sugar, and pepper. Pour over ribs (use same pot) and turn frequently to cover each piece.

Remove ribs and shake in brown paper bag with flour. In a large skillet, add cooking oil and brown ribs (not too long or they'll dry out). Place in large casserole dish.

In a saucepan, combine sauce ingredients and cook over medium heat until slightly thick (if using pineapple, place tidbits in casserole with ribs) Pour over ribs and set in 350 degree oven for at least 1/2 hour. Flour on ribs will thicken the sauce. Serve over a bed of rice.
