Pork Ribs with Apple and Ginger

Pork Ribs with Apple and Ginger

This was tonight's dinner - cooked in the pressure cooker after soccer practice and in the midst of homework being completed. When it appeared on the table, the boys were in shock that I had produced this midweek, without a fuss and on a busy night! Amazing what a drop in temperature can entice you to cook up! It is so easy and so delicious that it will happen in our house more than once!!!!! ENJOY!


  • 5 garlic cloves grated
  • knob ginger grated
  • 3 sticks lemon grass grated
  • 5 spring onions chopped
  • huge lug of soya sauce
  • huge lug oyster sauce
  • lug of sesame oil
  • 100 ml ginger syrup I used Hakanoa - handmade in NZ
  • splash of cooking sake
  • bunch Thai basil finely chopped
  • 1 chilli chopped
  • 2 large full racks of pork spare ribs
  • 3 apples peeled and cored and sliced into wedges


  1. Combine all of the above ingredients and allow to marinate at room temperature for around 2 hours if you can.
  2. Place the pork ribs into a pressure cooker.
  3. Pour in all the marinade ingredients
  4. Follow your pressure cooker instructions to bring to pressure and allow to cook at pressure for 1 hour.
  5. Carefully allow the steam to escape and open the lid - the aroma will be powerfully seductive!
  6. Take the ribs out and arrange on a large serving platter (I love to serve over roasted kumara) and spoon over the thickened apple ginger sauce.
  7. Good luck if you can eat these and stop before you get a tummy ache!!!!
