Ready In:
5-7 Ribs




  • Heat pressure cooker over medium heat, add oil.
  • Rub meat with rib seasoning, and brown them in the cooker one or two at a time so you don't end up steaming them.
  • Once the ribs are browned on all sides, add them all back to the cooker with the cooking liquid ingredients.
  • Close the pressure cooker, cook according to your pressure cooker instructions, or about 18-20 mins at high pressure.
  • Pre-Heat your grill pan or barbeque over low heat.
  • When the timer goes off, remove the cooker from heat and run under cool water in the sink.
  • Remove ribs from cooking liquid.
  • Stir 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid into your barbeque sauce of choice (optional: add one of the chipotles from the cooking liquid into the sauce to spice it up).
  • Grill ribs over low heat basting with BBQ sauce and turning every 5 minutes or so until a nice glaze has formed all over the ribs.
  • Enjoy!

  1. This is the last PAC recipe we made. Everything else was so good, but this just didn't turn out for us. We ended up chucking it and going to Wendy's. I'm giving it 3 stars because while the sauce flavor was good (but VERY thin), I think it may have been the meat. Perhaps we got ribs that were too thin? I'm not sure, this was our first foray into ribs! I'm sorry I can't give this a higher rating, however we have made SuperSpike's salsa 3 times in the past 3 weeks! *laugh*


Welcome to my page! I live in Central Washington State with my husband and Golden Retriever, Hallie. I'm back in my hometown after earning my Bachelor's Degree, and I work at a Brokerage firm. I've loved cooking my whole life, and really delved into it during high school when I got put in charge of cooking for my family of seven, who were all picky eaters or had dietary restrictions. I really like to experiment in the kitchen- its one place where my creativity can really flow. I rarely measure ingredients unless I'm baking- but I occasionally bust out the scales, spoons, and cups so I can post accurate recipes. Nowadays I cook lightened versions of my favorites. I joined Weight Watchers in April 2007 and have lost 40 lbs on the program- it has really changed my life. I recently started working as a receptionist for Weight Watchers meetings on top of my full time job because I enjoy the program so much. WW has helped out my Hubby, too- He has lost around 30 lbs as well just by eating my lighter cooking :) I like the challenge of making healthy but delicious food. My favorite TV Chef is Alton Brown- I own all of his cookbooks, and like how he has a reason for everything he does. Plus, I like to jerry-rig things and he's a sort of MacGyver in the kitchen. My biggest challenge in cooking is making food that appeals to me while not disgusting my husband. He likes very simple, and somewhat bland foods. He hates garlic and onions, so I've really had to scale back there, though I won't give them up completely. I love to try new flavors and cuisines, while he would be happy eating Hamburger Helper. I'm just getting in to baking bread. I've tried using my KitchenAid mixer and actually prefer doing it by hand- nothing better than hot bread fresh out of the oven! I'm also a regular poster in the exercise/High activity forum since I started running earlier this year. My plan is to participate in all our local fun-runs.
