  • 2 racks of pork ribs (about 3-4 pounds total)
  • 1 small head of cabbage, shredded
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Ribs: Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. Season generously with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and brown sugar. Rub the seasoning into the meat with your hands, ensuring an even coat.
  2. Pressure Cook the Ribs: Place the ribs in the pressure cooker. Add 4 cups of water. Lock the lid and set the pressure cooker to high for 25 minutes. Once done, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure manually.
  3. Preheat the Oven: While the ribs are cooking, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Crisp the Ribs: Remove the ribs from the pressure cooker and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Brush the ribs generously with BBQ sauce. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the sauce is caramelized and sticky.
  5. Prepare the Cabbage Slaw: In a large bowl, combine shredded cabbage, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, honey, celery seed, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Let the slaw sit for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  6. Serve: Slice the ribs between the bones. Serve the ribs hot with a side of tangy cabbage slaw. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

These bold BBQ ribs paired with a tangy cabbage slaw are sure to become a favorite at your dinner table. The combination of tender, flavorful meat and crisp, refreshing slaw is simply unbeatable. Get ready to impress your guests with this delicious American classic!
