How to Steam Ribs in a Pressure Cooker

Braising ribs in a pressure cooker is very convenient. Generally it only takes 15-20 minutes, which greatly saves the client's time and energy

1. How much water to put in the pressure cooker when stewing ribs.

Water should be added according to the amount of ribs, as long as the ribs are submerged. If you prefer a bit more dry, add a small bowl of water. If it's a normal pot, add a little more water, otherwise it won't be simmered. The ribs cooked by a pressure cooker retain the original flavor and the deliciousness of the meat will not be damaged as an electric pressure cooker will do.

2. Steps to steam ribs in a pressure cooker.

  • First clean the ribs of the right size, and put them in the pressure cooker, with the water to submerge the ribs by more than two centimeters or not exceeding the maximum water level of the pressure cooker. Otherwise, the safety valve will only spray water after the water boils, resulting in much soup splashing on the stove.

  • Put the pot on the stove with the lid removed. Boil the pot and after the scum is removed, add appropriate seasonings such as rice wine, ginger, garlic, star anise, cardamom, salt, vinegar, etc. Based on your taste. Put the lid on the pot, and also place pressure-limiting valve, then start timing when pressure-limiting valve releases the steam.

  • When the pressure limiting valve starts to release the steam, the fire can be adjusted to keep the way it is. The pressure cooker simmers the ribs for 15-20 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow it cool naturally. When in a hurry, you can take the pressure cooker to the faucet and sprinkle water to cool. When no steam is discharged after the pressure limiting valve is gently lifted, the lid can be removed only after the pressure-limiting valve is removed. Then put the pot on the stove with no lid. other vegetables can also be added to cook.

  • Note: Before using the pressure cooker, check whether the lid cushion is intact, whether the steam exhaust hole is unblocked, and whether the safety valve is flexible. Otherwise,replace these elements before cooking.
