Pressure-Cooker Pork Ribs Recipe

Enjoy melt-in-your-mouth ribs when you try this pressure cooker recipe shared by field editor Paula Zsiray of Logan, Utah. “When I was younger, my mom-Doris Stephenson-made these delicious spareribs for special Saturday dinners,” says Paula.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed


  • 1. Sprinkle the ribs with the onion salt, pepper and paprika. In a pressure cooker, brown ribs in oil on all sides. Remove from the pressure cooker and drain. Return meat to the pressure cooker. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over meat.
  • 2. 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.)
  • 3. 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.

"Delicious! I did have to make a couple changes based on what my elderly mother-in-law had in her pantry. I used seasoned salt instead of onion salt, I used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar, sprinkled dry dill instead of celery seed. And just left the ribs whole instead of cutting into chunks. Oh and I used soy sauce instead of Worcester sauce. I know this sounds like a whole new recipe, but I was desperate for a recipe for pressure cooker ribs since that's what she had in her freezer, and this recipe was the closest I could find compared to the ingredients on hand. Absolutely delicious and flavorful. The juice was amazing too, over rice would be fantastic (I only had Mac n cheese) I will honor the original recipe by making it by exact ingredients when I am back at home. Thank you so much for the ideas!!!!"

"I made this tonight and it was the first time I made something in my pressure cooker. I did use beer in place of the water like another reviewer suggested. It turned out very tender. Lots of flavor and you cannot beat the time."

"This is a great recipe, but I made a couple of changes; I used onion powder & fine sea salt instead of onion salt; and I used beer instead of water. Next time I make it, I will probably add a little more salt"
