A pressure cooker or an Instant Pot will cut your cooking time significantly but the good ol’ heavy pot works wonders too.
This fall-off-the-bone recipe ticks all the boxes for braised pork ribs – the rich black sauce is sweet, sticky and slightly spicy and the pork ribs are charred, smokey and full of flavour.
* Instead of a pressure cooker / instant pot, you may use a heavy pot and stew the pork ribs for 1½ hour, flipping them every now and then.
