Pork Ribs with Pumpkin BBQ Sauce {AIP/Paleo}

I don’t know about you but I love myself a slab of ribs, there is something really primal about pulling meat off of a bone, not to mention when you use the slow cooker setting on the instant pot to cook your Ribs, the gelatinous bone broth that is made – makes this a sure winner!

Are you like me?  Do you see an ingredient recommended as a replacement for xyz and immediately purchase it, but then said items sits on your shelf or in the fridge because you take a taste and you just don’t like it??  Well that was the problem with Pumpkin Butter for me… I just couldn’t get on with the taste… until now.  It’s rich fruity texture is the perfect base for my BBQ Sauce!

I used Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter, which does not have citric acid (which is a good thing as commercially citric acid is either grown on mold or grain!!) but it does have nutmeg.

I also list below an alternative which is Totally AIP

Instant Pot Beef Bourguignon {AIP/Paleo}

I’m just starting to venture into using the pressure cooker setting on my Instant Pot, but each and every time I do, I am overwhelmed with the deliciousness that prevails.

This past Friday night while my daughter was on a play date, I really fancied Beef Stew, and I had some Stew Meat in the fridge and some bacon, some veggies and I thought that was the route I would go, until my eye landed on a bottle of Red Wine that a friend had opened while visiting recently and I was reminded of a recipe that my Mum used to make when I was a child that would fill the house with a rich aroma that warmed you just on inhalation!

Alcohol is not AIP Compliant but when it is cooked, the alcohol is burned off, so waste not want not, I decided craft an AIP Compliant Beef Bourguignon Recipe… as my ode to Julia Child!

As the aroma started to fill the house, I actually started salivating, pleased that I only had to wait 30 minutes for dinner to be ready… and boy was I rewarded.

Maple Balsamic Beef (Instant Pot) {AIP/Paleo}

When Amazon reduced the price of the Instant Pot for Black Friday, it immediately went on my Amazon Wish List, and as those reward points grew from buying all my gifts for others, I may or may not have bought myself a little gift 😉

I have had one busy day today, and made my first batch of Coconut Milk Yogurt in said Instant Pot and forgot… to plan for dinner – which would not ever happen if my daughter is around, but she is with her Dad today so I lost track of time.

I had been grocery shopping and had a nice Chuck Roast and thought.. Hmmm what can I make here… I’m one of those cooks who will look at a recipe, then TOTALLY deviate from that recipe (and until recently NOT write down what I ended up making!!)

You are lucky because today I did… and this dish was simply delicious so read on!

This Dish could totally be made in a standard pressure cooker too!

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Begin by trimming the fat from the joint, and slice the beef into 1/2" thin strips
  2. Mix salt, ground ginger into a bowl, then use to season meat
  3. Switch Pressure Cooker to Browning Mode and add the Oil from the choice of oils above.
  4. Once the oil is heated and shimmery but not smoking, add the beef in batches and brown all sides. Take care not to crowd the beef, so that all sides get browned. When the meat is well browned transfer it to a plate and set aside
  5. Select the Saute Setting and add the finely chopped garlic for approximately 1 minute, then add broth, Balsamic Vinegar, Maple Syrup. Stir until contents are mixed well.
  6. Return the browned beef strips and any plate juices to the Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker. Secure the lid and set to High Pressure Setting. The meat needs approximately 25 minutes but you need to give time for the pressure to rise, so set the timer of the pressure cooker to 35 minutes.
  7. After the pressure cooker has completed 35 minutes, allow the pressure to release by using the quick release method. (I have a set of Kitchen Tongs on hand to do this, to avoid getting burnt)
  8. I did not complete this step but if you would like to thicken the sauce, use 4 tbsp of tapioca starch or arrowroot with 4 tbsp of water, mix until smooth, then add it to the pressure cooker, and stir well. Then continue cooking over medium-high heat, uncovered for about 5 minutes.
  9. Serve :)
