Beef Ribs (Pressure Cooker and BBQ)

Total Time

This is a culmination of trials and errors. Be sure to watch the ribs on the bbq as flare ups will occur due to the fatty ribs. Very tender and tasty. My husbands secret recipe.

Thank you for posting this was excellent. My husband does not like beef ribs much and I love them but he loved these. These ribs were a make again and a big hit at our house.

I made these tonight for supper and I redeemed myself after my inedible beef ribs last time I tried to cook them. They turned out great. I had a minor issue with my pressure cooker, it's old so I had a problem getting a seal, but once I did, things went great. The flavor was great and the meat came out very tender. Thanks for saving me.

Excellent recipe with one tiny exception. I find that adding paprika to the meat causes the paprika to burn and turn black. I will add it to the sauce next time.
I cook the meat longer as well to help melt more fat, about 16 minutes.
