Earthy spiced ribs are delicious plain, but they also go perfectly with this tangy sweet pineapple relish that comes together in minutes. If you're a spice addict, kick up the heat even further by doubling the cayenne.

MethodRemove membrane from underside of ribs, if attached.
Combine thyme, garlic powder, coriander, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, ginger, allspice and nutmeg. Rub all over ribs. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Place ribs, bone side down, in roasting pan; tent with foil. Roast in 350ºF (180ºC) oven until meat is fork-tender, about 2 hours. Brush tops with pan drippings. Broil until browned, about 3 minutes.
Pineapple Relish: Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion, garlic and ginger until softened, about 3 minutes. Add pineapple, jalapeño pepper, vinegar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes.
Combine cornstarch with 2 tbsp water; stir into pineapple mixture and boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in green onion. Let cool. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.) Serve with ribs.
