Pressure Cooker Ribs


One of the difficulties encountered when making ribs, either beef or pork, is the necessity to boil the ribs first.  This is a process that can take up to two hours, depending on how meaty your ribs are.  If you are going to make your ribs using a pressure cooker, you can skip the boiling step entirely.  Many people complain that boiling the ribs removed some of the flavor, so pressure cooker ribs will be tasty as well as tender.  And, the whole process will take only minutes.

It is advisable to brown the ribs before you begin to cook them, and this can be done right in your

pressure cooker

.  This will make sure that every bit of flavor is retained.  After the ribs have been browned, take the ribs out, pour off the excess fat, put the ribs and other ingredients in and start the

pressure cooker

.  In most cases, two pounds of ribs will only take 15 to 20 minutes to cook.  When you remove the ribs, they will be completely cooked – and tender.
