  2. WRAP the ribs with plastic wrap and store in the fridge overnight.
  3. SELECT Saute/Brown on the Cosori Pressure Cooker and press On/Start. Allow the pressure cooker to heat up.
  4. ADD the oil and allow to heat up for 30 seconds.
  5. BROWN your ribs in the hot oil meat side down, about 5 minutes. Remove them from the pressure cooker. You may may need to work in batches.

  7. SECURE THE LID on the pressure cooker, making sure the pressure release valve is in the lock position.
  8. SELECT Meat/Stew and press On/Start.
  9. NATURAL RELEASE for 15 minutes when done cooking. Release any residual pressure that may be left in the machine and carefully remove lid.
  10. REMOVE the ribs carefully from the pressure cooker onto a foil lined baking sheet.
  11. BROIL the ribs under a preheated oven with some barbecue sauce of your choice and some more of the rub until a nice crust forms, about 5-10 minutes.
