  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add rib pieces; shake to coat. In a pressure cooker, brown meat on all sides in oil; drain. Combine the water, ketchup, chili powder and hot pepper sauce; pour over ribs. Add onion. Close cover securely; place pressure regulator on vent pipe. Bring cooker to full pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 15 minutes. (Pressure regulator should maintain a slow steady rocking motion; adjust heat if needed.) Remove from the heat; allow pressure to drop on its own. Skim fat from sauce if necessary and serve with ribs if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was fast, easy and super tasty. My four year old son ate every piece I put on his plate. He chose to have mac and cheese as the side dish, of course."

"Absolutely delicious and so easy. Sauce makes enough for 1 lb. ribs, so double it for more. Added 1T. br. sugar and used about a tablespoon of Sriracha for the hot sauce.

Perfect every time!!"

"This looks like a good recipe; however, I do not have a pressure cooker; can they be done in the oven?"
