About

We’ve been back from Maui for 2 days now and I’m craving island food.

Wherever you go on the island you see an abundance of tropical fruit growing — mangoes, coconuts, papayas, and of course, Maui Gold Pineapples.

Our favorite snack was fresh coconut cut and sold by locals. They slice off the top and pop in a straw. Wow, fresh coconut water tastes NOTHING like the stuff that’s sold in stores. If I had it my way I’d drink fresh coconut water every day — so delicious. Once you’re done drinking the vibrant coconut water you have another treat in the soft coconut meat.

This recipe for Tropical Pork Ribs will take your taste buds to a delicious place where the sun is always shining and the water is warm and inviting.

With the use of your slow cooker and a little prep in the morning, this yummy dinner will be waiting for you when you get home from work!
