Dry Rubbed Pressure Cooked and Grilled Ribs take the amazing infusion of spices via a dry rub and some marinating time. The next phase, some time in a pressure cooker to seal all those flavors into ribs, and finally on the grill braising these babies with all that good stuff left in the pressure cooker. If your family loves ribs, then tantalize their taste buds with these!



1 large rack organic pork ribs cut into four equal pieces

Dry Rub:

  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp celery powder
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 Tbsp ground fennel seed
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp Chinese five spice
  • 1 tsp yellow curry powder
  • pinch of garam masala
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried Genovese basil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp fresh chives, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp grated lemongrass
  • 1 Tbsp fine sea salt

Mixture for pressure cooker:

  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 bay leaves
  • dash of peppercorns


Dry Rub:

  1. Place all ingredients for the dry rub in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Take the rib pieces and sprinkle the dry rub over the top and bottom rubbing it into the flesh. Make sure the ribs are well coated and all the dry rub is used up.
  3. Place ribs in a rectangular baking pan and toss in any remaining dry rub that may have fallen off.
  4. Place in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour.

Pressure cooking:

  1. Pour vegetable stock and ketchup into a pressure cooker.
  2. Toss in bay leaves and peppercorns, and stir a bit.
  3. Place ribs in and cover and seal lid on pressure cooker and put on the stove top on high heat.
  4. Cook for about 20 minutes, then let steam dissipate and take off lid.
  5. Take ribs out and place on a plate, and pour the liquid into a bowl for later use.
  6. Preheat barbeque to 275-300 degree F with only the two outside burners on. Leave the middle off as we are going to grill using indirect heat.
  7. Place ribs on the grill and take the liquid from the pressure cooker and slowly brush the top surface with the liquid.
  8. Turn the ribs and do the same on this side.
  9. Keep turning and brushing the ribs and grill for about 30 minutes. When ribs are done brush the top and bottom with the braising liquid and place on a serving dish.
  10. Ready to serve!



  1. If you don't have a pressure cooker you can use a cast pot or regular pot, bring to boil for a total time of 20 minutes with lid on tight.
  2. The approximate weight on the ribs was 2 lbs.
  3. The prep time includes the 1/2 hour marinating time in the fridge.
  4. Remember to let them rest a bit after cooking about 5 minutes.
