I made these great looking and tasting Back Ribs today in my new Indoor Pressure smoker/cooker, that my husband got me for Mother's Day. Judging from the taste & the length of time it took for them to cook I will be using it quite a bit this summer. That is 10 pounds of ribs on that platter that were cooked in 2 hours. It only takes 40 minutes to cook one slab. They are moist, tender, & juicy, and full of flavor, & falling off the bone good. My only negative complaint is that you can only cook one slab at a time. But at 40 minutes each, THAT'S NOT BAD. I LOVE THIS NEW ELECTRIC KITCHEN GADGET.
1Remove thin shiny membrane from back side of ribs. Combine all spices except liquid smoke, into a small bowl. Stir to mix. Generously season each slab of baby back ribs. Sprinkle with liquid smoke if using, and rub into meat.
2Cut each rib into two bone pieces, and arrange on rack that came with cooker. Add 1/2 cup water to cooker. Position rack to fit inside cooker by following manufacturers directions. Close Lid. Program timer to 40 minutes, then press start.
3In 40 minutes you have moist, tender, and juicy ribs. Brush Barbeque Sauce on ribs if desired & serve. Repeat the previous step if you have more than one slab to cook. Serve with your favorite sides.
4This is a Mother's Day Gift that will keep on giving all year. My husband knows that I appreciate practical gifts that I can use, and this is certainly one of them. I can't praise it enough for it's efficiency, and performance. It is great for the busy mom that is always on the go, and needs dinner in a hurry. Sweet Baby Rays Honey Barbeque Sauce is my favorite, and the only one I prefer to use. This kitchen gadget is a great investment for time spent in the kitchen.
