Barbecued Beef Short Ribs - Pressure Cooker
6 lbs short ribs, cut in pieces
3 Tbsp bacon fat (or vegetable oil)
2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cups ketchup
2 tsp celery seed
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp dry mustard
2 cups water
Place removable cooking pot in pressure cooker. Add fat or oil. Select the "BROWN" setting on the control panel of your NESCO® Pressure Cooker. Add ribs and begin browning. When the meat is browned, press START/STOP button and add remaining ingredients.
Place the lid on the pressure cooker and lock in place. Turn Pressure Regulator Knob to "Pressure" or "Seal". Set pressure setting to "HIGH". Set desired cooking time to 40 minutes.
After the 40 minutes is completed, release pressure and remove ribs. If additional cooking time is needed, reset pressure cooker to add desired cooking time.
Gravy Option: When meat is done, remove ribs from cooking pot. Measure the amount of liquid remaining in cooking pot. In a separate bowl, mix 2 tablespoons flour and 1/4 cup cold water for each cup liquid. Using the BROWN function, heat the liquid to boiling. Slowly add the flour/water mixture while stirring. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add meat back in cooking pot and stir to coat meat with gravy.
Serves 4 to 8
NOTE: The PC6-25P 3-in-1 Pressure Cooker Regulator Knob identifies Pressure as 'SEAL' and Steam as 'VENT'.
