Fall-off-the-bone braised Pork Ribs

Pork ribs braised over medium heat usually take at least 2 hours for the meat to soften and tenderise. To reduce the cooking time, I decided to take out my pressure cooker to cook this dish and it took just 30 minutes. I was rewarded with a flavourful fall-off-the bone pork ribs.
