I had such a busy and awesome Memorial Day weekend. I barely had any time to cook. But I somehow managed to squeeze in a super duper easy-peezy recipe. It’s super quick, super yummy, and just plain super all around!
Usually, when Summer starts to roll around, I start to cook less. I’m not sure why either. I actually dislike hot weather immensely, it makes me feel lethargic and just all-around LAZY. And this Summer is going to be a crazy one cause I’m going to start my hardcore wedding diet and workout regime! I won’t be able to cook all the yummy stuff I love to cook and gobble them down like I usually do. All for the sake of fitting into my wedding dress later this year. Grrrrr………
In between two failed attempts of trying to watch the HANGOVER 2 movie, the dining out with friends and some crazy dancing at a wannabe rave event, I managed to stop by the market to buy some beef ribs. Then on Monday, I crawled out of bed after dancing late into the night. Every part of my body was aching! But I had a BBQ Potluck event to attend in just a few hours, so I had to get a move on with cooking my contribution.
This recipe is actually very similar to the BBQ Beef Sliders. The ingredients are pretty much the same except for the beef ribs replacing the brisket.
3 lbs. Beef Ribs
2 Cups BBQ Sauce
2 Tbsp. Pepper Jelly
1/2 Cup Beef Broth (Not Pictured)
Season the ribs with some salt and pepper first. Pour the BBQ Sauce and beef broth into the main cooking pot of the pressure cooker. Mix it well so the sauce is kind of a soupy consistency. Add the pepper jelly and mix as well. Coat each rib in the sauce thoroughly, then leave in the pot unless your ribs are too big and you don’t have room to coat the sauce.
When you’re done giving each rib a nice sauce bath, shut the lid and turn it to lock it into position. Program the cook time for 15-minutes and press START. That’s it. That’s all this recipe needs you to do.
When the cooking cycle is complete, let the machine drop down in pressure on its own. That will take about 10-minutes or so. The yellow flashing light will become a solid light when the pressure has all released. But just in case, you can set the Pressure Valve to Exhaust before opening the lid.
Using a pair of tongs, take out each rib carefully and put it onto a platter. Spoon some of the remaining sauce over the ribs. You can serve it immediately or you can do what I ended up doing.
I had to leave for my friend’s BBQ right when the ribs were done. So I put them all into a Tupperware and jet out of the house. I didn’t even get to do the dishes! At my friend’s house, we didn’t eat right away so the ribs got cold. But I ended up having my friend put the ribs onto the actual BBQ grill to warm it up and also give it that extra special bbq char. The pressure cooker cooked the meat quickly to the point where it was falling off the bone. Then the BBQ grill added that final finishing touch that most guys like on their grilled meat. It was a success! Delicious and finger-licking-good! Every last rib was gobbled up.
