Pork ribs is a staple in our house. Whether they’re done in the oven (Sticky Pork Ribs) or outside on the BBQ or even in my electric pressure cooker (Fuss-free Instant Pot Ribs). I always dry rub the ribs first when I make them in the Instant Pot pressure cooker, often leaving them to develop flavour for a couple of hours or even overnight.
All the ingredients, with the exception of the sugar, will be found in the supermarket’s spice aisle. The sugar will be found in the baking section.
The cumin and coriander provides some earthy notes to the pork and also brings out the sweetness in the meat. The smoked paprika brings the much familiar smoky taste whilst the mustard seeds has a bit of a bite to it.
The onion and garlic powder elevates the ribs to provide a flavour punch.
If you would like a bit of heat, why not add a teaspoon or two of smoked chipotle flakes?
