1 rack of baby back ribs (cleaned, trimmed, cut into 2 rib pieces)
1 cup ketchup
½ cup water
¼ cup molasses
1 onion chopped
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoon of cider vinegar
1 ½ Tablespoons Sweet Paprika
1 ½ Tablespoons Smoked Paprika
1 ½ Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon of liquid smoke
2 teaspoons chili power
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons roasted minced garlic
Add brown sugar, sweet paprika, smoked paprika, chili powder, and cayenne pepper to a bowl and mix well with a folk. Remove half of this mix to a zip top bag for next time.
Rub the rest over ribs making sure to get all sides and nooks and crannies.
Turn Pressure Cooker to saute setting.
Add oil and onions. Stir and cook until onions are translucent.
Add water, ketchup, molasses, roasted garlic, cider vinegar and liquid smoke to cooker and stir and cook for a couple of minutes.
Remove about a cup of sauce from pressure cooker with a ladle. Add rib pieces up the sides of the cooker. Pour sauce over each rib piece.
Add top to pressure cooker and cook on high pressure for 30 minutes. Prepare a baking pan with aluminum foil sprayed with cooking oil. When steam has been released open cooker and remove the ribs to prepared foil with tongs. Turn setting on cooker to saute and stir and cook until sauce is reduced by half.
When sauce is reduced remove to bowl. Brush sauce on both sides of ribs and broil ribs using the broiler in your oven until the sauce starts to caramelize, flip and brush on more sauce. Do this a few times to build up a nice layer of sauce. This should only take a couple of minutes.
There will be lots of sauce left over for those of you who like it saucy. Enjoy.
