Excellent!!! Fell right off the bone.

Can I triple this recipe?
Santana Williams says:
Making ribs in my pressure cooker has saved me so much time! At the last minute some friends came over and I was able to fix these really quick. I used store-bought honey bbq sauce and water instead of apple cider vinegar. Perfection!
Jordan Clark says:
I've made pressure cooker ribs before but did not cut them into individual bones. This was such a great idea. Last time I cut them in halves or thirds. I made this specific recipe for a party at my house and made a batch of my own sauce. Everyone loved it! They were delicious and tender.
DC Cote says:
I used a homemade barbecue sauce infused with New Mexico peppers and it was delicious. I did make one mistake, I read the ingredients list as "apple cider vinegar" instead of "apple cider". Can't really tell if it made a difference or not, I thought they came out phenomenal.
Dominique M says:
The key to this recipe is a really good sauce. I used my favorite, homemade BBQ sauce recipe, which includes ketchup, apple cider vinegar, light brown sugar, onion powder, ground mustard, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. When you use a quality sauce, you don't really need any extra seasonings. This is one of my favorite recipes, I make it over and over again.
Alex Cabral says:
I thought these ribs could have used a dry rub seasoning other than salt and pepper. I always mix chile powder, sugar, cumin, dry mustard, cayenne pepper, etc. Also, I used more than 1 cup of sauce. I'd make this again, just with these minor changes.
