I’ve come across and tried a wonderful little recipe from cookistry.blogspot.com. The recipe? Spiced-up Country Style Pork Ribs. They were delicious and so very tender and cooked up easily in my pressure cooker.
Spiced-Up Country-Style Pork Ribs
The granulated dried peppers I used were ancho, New Mexico, pasilla, and guajillo
3-4 pieces of country-style pork ribs
1/2 cup granulated dried peppers (I used 1/8 cup of each of the four)
Salt, to taste
Place the ribs in the pressure cooker. Add water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Seal and cook on high for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, hear 2 cups of water to boiling. Turn off the heat and add the peppers. Let the peppers soak while the pork cooks.
When the the pressure cooker time is up, release the pressure and remove the lid. Skim off the scum from the top of the cooking liquid, and remove enough liquid so it’s about halfway up the pork.
Pass the pepper mixture through a fine strainer. Discard the seeds and skin in the strainer and add the pepper puree to the pot with the pork. Stir. Taste for seasoning and add salt, as needed. At this point, the pork is fully cooked, but it’s still tough.
Put the lid on the cooker and set to slow cook. Cook for 4 hours, or until the meat is tender. Serve with some of the cooking liquid – it makes a nice sauce.
Like any braised meat, this is better the next day. It’s great served with rice or you can break it up a bit and make tacos.
