From the Test Kitchen

Pressure Cooker

Prepare ribs as directed. Place a steamer insert in a 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker; add broth and, if desired, liquid smoke. Coat ribs with half of the sauce and place in cooker. Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 30 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat according to manufacturer's directions; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 30 minutes. Remove from heat. For electric and stove-top models, let stand to release pressure naturally, at least 15 minutes, or according to manufacturer's directions. If necessary, carefully open steam vent to release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Continue as directed in Step 3.
