Pressure Cooker BBQ Pork Ribs

Pressure Cooker BBQ Pork Ribs - Pikalily Food Travel Blog

We recently shared a few pork recipes (pressure cooker bbq pulled pork and slow cooker honey & beer pulled pork), and we got our pressure cooker back out to cook some tasty pork ribs.  Using NI pork ribs from our local butchers, we created a dry rub mix for the ribs and got down to business.  Ribs are a favourite of ours, and when your eating them in your own home it’s a case of “more please”, and plenty of sauce.  Follow our step by step guide to these tasty BBQ pork ribs below.  We’ve even included an easy to follow video for you at the end.

Yesterday we brought you a pressure cooker BBQ pulled pork recipe, and we’ve been busy in the kitchen again, this time with the slow cooker.  This time we’ve slow cooked some pork butt (which we picked up from Lynas Food Outlet in Belfast) in a honey and beer sauce for your enjoyment.  Check out the steps below for creating this dish, and you can even watch our step by step video to creating the dish at the bottom of the page.  Let us know what you think of it in the comments section below.

Pressure Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders

Pressure Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe - Pikalily Food Blog

We’ve been getting our meat on of late, and after we recently created a tasty slow cooked beer beef brisket dish for Easter, we’ve been busy in the kitchen again creating a pulled pork recipe with a wonderful cut of pork butt from the Lynas Food Outlet in Belfast.  Rather than slow cooking the pork (as is often the norm with BBQ pulled pork), we got our pressure cooker out and cooked this pulled pork dish in less than an hour – that’s right, less than an hour!  If you don’t have a pressure cooker you could slow cook the pork for 4 – 6 hours.

Spicy Spanish Potato and Sausage Bombs

Spicy Spanish Potato Sausage Bomb - Pikalily Food Blog

We were recently asked by luxury travel site Destinology for a recipe that takes inspiration from our travels.  Having honeymooned in Barcelona and Madrid, and also spent time recently in Valencia, for us, it had to be a Spanish inspired recipe.  We did a lot of foodie things on these trips, from food tours in Madrid and Valencia, to wine and tapas in Barcelona, so it’s fair to say we had plenty to choose from.

Sausage, apple and onion lattice pie

Sausage apple onion lattice pie recipe - Pikalily food blog

This is a really flavoursome pie that we created with some left over sausages and a few apples. Perfect as autumn approaches! Helen’s mum supplied some home grown apples but any type of sweet apple that you have in the fruit bowl will work well. Whatever apple you choose, just be aware that certain apples like Royal Gala will break down more than a firmer type such as Pink Lady. You can use plain or flavoured pork sausages, it’s up to you, but we had some tasty, caramelised onion flavoured sausages from the butchers which were delicious! We also used some ready-made pastry for this mid-week pie but if you have the time, feel free to get your bake on and show off your pastry skills!

Cider glazed sausages and champ rosti

Cider glazed sausage and champ - Pikalily food blog

Following some feedback on Facebook, we decided to look at a request for a meat and two veg dish, so we decided to create a popular dish with a bit of a difference for tonights dinner.  This meal is cheap and easy to make and perfect for winter weather.  This is our twist on one of Britain and Ireland’s most popular dishes – Bangers and Mash.  The cider and honey in this recipe will create a beautifully caramelised and sticky apple and onion glaze for the oven roasted sausages.  The addition of a champ potato rosti provides and added textural element, while still maintaining that wonderful buttery champ taste that we all love.
