  • “I have been using this recipe for many years, but, I use it with “western” ribs…they are thicker than regular ribs.We have shared this requested recipe so many times! Thanks for posting it!”

  • “Great flavor second time I made it I used “Pataks” spicy ginger curry sauce instead of Worce.. and added a 1/4cup dark natual brown sugar. The orignial is great more standard flavor my variation different…The resultant consistancy of liquid after cooking needed to be thickened for use ..I want to try cooking longer to see what effect it has..The specified cook time is right meat falls off the bone with specified time..Have any more recipes with pressure cooker.. please post”

  • “My husband does not even like ribs, but he loves these.I will definitely make then again.”

  • “This was the best ribs I have ever tasted they melted in our mouths. the meat fell off the bones. I give it five stars and will continue to use this recipe.”

  • “Good Stuff!I added a few fresh cayenne peppers (4) with the onions, and deglazed it with a glass of white wine.I also added a few chipotle in adobe (a whole can) with the other ingredients because I like it hot!My wife, who usually doesn’t like ribs, loved this too.I also used chicken broth for the vinegar.Cooking time was just about right on.Was the first time I made them in the pressure cooker, and will definitely make them again since it is a fast done deal.Thanks Dibs!”

  • “I love this recipe!The ribs were divine!!!”

  • “A BIG hit with my family.It tastes sooo good!The ribs come out very tender.Didn’t change a thing.”

  • “Great recipe, the meat just falls off the bones. Pressure cooking ribs to tenderize is a great idea. The only thing I did different was to put them under the broiler to brown them alittle. Thanks for posting.”
