You don’t need a grill to make delicious ribs. Use the pressure cooker and the oven to create tender spare ribs that will leave people wanting more!
We love the pressure cooker because it makes complicated and time-consuming recipes easy and quick. It also cuts down the cooking time, keeping meat tender, juicy and tasty.
For this recipe, we’ll cook the spare ribs in the pressure cooker before placing them in the oven for just a few minutes to make them crispy. Then we’ll drizzle over a savory sauce - also prepared in the pressure cooker - for a smoky flavor. And as quick as that, the ribs are ready!
