Miss Annie, The pork is sensational. DH piged out on it. Gravy was delicious served with bow tie noodles. I used very lean country style(boneless)ribs. Worked great. Hadn't used my pressure pan in ages. Thank you for another great recipe.

We are exploring the use of our pressure cooker and happened on this recipe via Barb's recommendation. It was very "home cooking" style; but not our favorite.

I am still learning how to use my pressure cooker, and this recipe was perfectly written and turned out great! Loved the gravy. I also threw in some baby carrots on top of the onions. Served with mashed potatoes. Will be making this again! I am looking forward to trying it with a darker beer, also.
