Everyone has a favourite go to recipe for BBQ Pork Ribs. Here is my take. I've made in the pressure cooker but they can also be slow cooked or made in the oven with slight variations.
Servings 4 Serves

  • Pressure Cooker


  • 2 Full American Pork Ribs Racks

For the Rub

  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

  • Remove the membrane from the ribs. Combine the rub ingredients and coat your ribs. Place in fridge for 1 - 12 hours.
  • Place the sauce ingredients into your pressure cooker or slow cooker. If using the oven use a saucepan and bring ingredients to the boil.
  • Place the ribs standing into your pressure cooker or direct into the sauce in your slow cooker.
  • Serve with additional sauce on the side.



  • Option 1: If cooking in the oven place the ribs in a 180 degree pre-heated oven for 45 mins. Then baste one side of the ribs with sauce and place back into the oven for another 15 minutes. Turn baste the other side and cook for another 15 minutes.
