Nothing beats fall-off-the-bone beef ribs slathered with just-spicy-enough BBQ sauce… the only problem is the time commitment.
BBQ ribs are fairly easy to prepare and very difficult to mess up but just the thought of cooking them all day is a bit daunting. Thanks to my pressure cooker the time issue has been wiped out and these delectable finger licking treats can be yours in about an hour.
As I researched pressure cooker rib recipes for the upcoming 3 day weekend I found many different ways to achieve tender results. Some suggest adding liquid to the inner pot and cooking the ribs on top of a trivet, others say to simply place the ribs in the cooker with BBQ sauce and some suggest browning prior to cooking. I tried all three methods and came up with the perfect formula worthy of sharing. I finished half my batch off on the grill, which lends a nice caramelized texture, although this step can be skipped without sacrificing any flavor.
5 lbs or 2 slabs of beef ribs, cut in 2-4 rib slabs
1/4 cup BBQ spice rub of your choice
3 cups of BBQ sauce of your choice
Season the ribs by rubbing spice rub on all sides. If you have time, let them marinate in the fridge for a few hours.
Set your pressure cooker to Brown and brown ribs on meat side for a few minutes. Pour 2 cups of BBQ sauce on top of the ribs and set to High Pressure for 60 minutes.
Release pressure and check for doneness. If meat comes off the bone easily your ribs are done.
Serve with extra barbeque sauce and plenty of napkins on the side.
