This country style ribs recipe turns out some succulent and delectable pork. Cooked in half the time or less in your pressure cooker. Yes, that’s right, I said “half the time”.
Country style ribs are the less popular cousin of the baby back spare ribs. At least that is the way I always felt about them. When my Mom made them on the barbecue or in the oven, they were always tough. They had to be cooked to death lest you would have to wrestle them around the plate to even cut into them.
Of course that was before I discovered the pressure cooker. Which is a real pal to a plate full of country style ribs. This style of ribs, because they are meatier, can be even more satisfying when cooked under pressure for a short time. They come out fall apart tender, yet still juicy.
