  • Step 1: Pre-Boiling the Pork Ribs : In a pressure cooker, add pork ribs, garlic cloves, bay leaves cinnamon stick, 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon salt.
  • Pressure cook for 4 whistles or till the meat is tender, but still attached to the bone.

  • Cut the onions into 4 big chunks and roast in a thick skillet, until deep brown on all sides.
  • In a blender, add the roasted peppercorns, tomatoes, onion, garlic, soaked peppercorns, chillies and ginger. Blend it to smooth paste with half a cup of the cooking broth from the ribs.
  • Add honey, brown sugar, cumin, Chipotle smoked sea salt, lime juice and olive oil to the paste and mix well.
