Pressure-Cooked Juicy & Tender BBQ Spareribs

Getting off the couch on a lazy Sunday was more difficult than actually making this. Usually ribs take a ridiculously long time to achieve maximum fall-off-the-bone tenderness, but with a pressure cooker it takes about 20 minutes.  And with the ingredients listed it's even gluten-free.

  • Ingredients:


    1lb pork or beef spareribs

    Generous amount of Rub With Love - Pork Rub

    Olive Oil

    Smoked Salt

    100% Maple Syrup

    Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Hard Cider

    J. Lee Roy's Dippin' Sauce

  • Instructions:

    For this recipe I used a 6 quart pressure cooker with the pressure at its highest setting(15PSI). For this size cooker, I had precut my ribs into sections small enough for my pressure cooker but big enough to still know you're eating ribs and need many many napkins. This is no dainty dish!

    Make sure the membrane from the underside of the ribs is removed before you start. So far the easiest way for me has been to use a paper towel for grip, grab one corner of the membrane, and pull. Works like a charm.

    Generously apply the rub to the ribs and finish them off with a few dashes of smoked salt per side. Heat a drizzle or two of olive oil in a large pan and brown the ribs on medium heat. This only took about 2 minutes to season, and another 2 minutes to brown per side.

    Before placing the lid on the pressure cooker, add about 8 ounces of hard cider and let some maple syrup ooze down the sides of the ribs. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and set to HIGH (15PSI).

    After about 15 minutes, remove the pressure cooker from the stove and used the cold water method to release the pressure. Open the pressure cooker to find some seriously juicy ribs.
