Grilled Barbecued Ribs, South American Style

3 medium sized yellow onion, coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp sugar
1-1/4 cup water
3 lbs pork spareribs, or beef shortribs, cut into 2 rib lengths
2-1/4 cups canned crushed tomatoes
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp molasses
1 large banana, peeled and sliced 1/2 inch thick
1/4 cup raisins
2 tsp ground ginger
3/4 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
1/4 tsp hot red pepper sauce
8 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch lengths
1 cup long grain white or brown rice

Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the onions and garlic in a 5 quart Dutch oven and sprinkle with the sugar. Add 1 cup of the water and simmer, uncovered, over moderate heat until the water has evaporated and the onions are very soft - about 10 minutes. Add the ribs, the remaining water, and the tomatoes, vinegar, molasses, banana, raisins, ginger, oregano, and red pepper sauce, and mix well. Bring to a boil, cover and transfer to the oven. Bake until the ribs are well done, about 1 hour 20 minutes. Stir in the green beans, cover, and bake until the beans are tender - 15-20 minutes more. Meanwhile cook the rice according to package directions. Serve with the rice and garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired. Serves 4.
