I received a pressure cooker for a gift and I am having so much fun with it! It cooks food super fast and in some instances even better then the original method. I would recommend cooking ribs in a pressure cooker. I used my pressure cooker to cook the ribs for 30 minutes and then finished them off in the oven for 15 minutes. The whole process took less then an hour, that is unheard of for ribs! Plus, they turned out amazing, so moist they fall of the bone.
- Cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup of apple cider
- 3-4 lb pork ribs (check your pressure to see how much it can hold, mine can cook up to 8 lb)
- Barbecue Sauce (homemade or bottled)
First cut up ribs into about 6 inch pieces, season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
Add 1/2 cup of cider to bottom of the pressure cooker and add the ribs. Place the lid on and seal. Program for 30 minutes of cooking time.
It will take a few minutes for pressure cooker to reach temperature Once it is ready it will start to count down, when it is done cooking switch the valve on top to release the steam. Be very careful not to burn yourself, is always a good idea to use a hot glove.
Remove ribs from pressure cooker, and place on pan lined with foil and generously coat with barbecue sauce.
Cook the ribs at 350 for 15 minutes. You should see the barbecue sauce start to caramelize which will give you a nice golden brown finish. Slice and enjoy!
If you don’t have a pressure cooker I highly recommend getting one for your kitchen! They can do so many things (and super quick too). It will make cooking dinners a breeze! Here are a couple highly rated models I found at Amazon and a cookbook to get you started.
