  • Cook frozen steak fries according to package directions. Set aside and keep warm.

  • Prepare grill or preheat broiler. Stir together ketchup, jam, honey, soy sauce and vinegar. Brush sauce on top and bottom of rib sections. Grill ribs, covered, over medium-high flame until nicely charred, about 8 minutes. (If you are using a broiler, place ribs on a foil-lined baking sheet under broiler until crispy.)

  • Pour remaining sauce over ribs and serve with warm steak fries.
