Pressure Cooker Indian Curry Lamb Spareribs

Pin It

I got the inspiration for this dish after tasting my buddy Noopur’s bright and fresh-tasting curried mutton the other day. She’s a fellow CrossFitting foodie who obsesses about what’s she’s going to eat all the time — just like me. Noopur told me the secret to her recipe is to use lots of lemon juice and chopped cilantro.  Here’s a simplified (and bastardized) American version of her phenomenal recipe.

Ingredients (Serves 2-3 people)

For the lamb

For the sauce

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 pound ripe tomatoes
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (I use Maharajah Style Curry Powder)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, divided
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

Toss the spare ribs with 2 teaspoons salt…

image

…and 1 tablespoon curry powder.

image

image

Use your hands to thoroughly coat the ribs.

image

Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of four hours and up to a day.

When you’re ready to cook off the ribs, melt the coconut oil over medium heat in a 6-qt pressure cooker.

Brown the spare ribs in two batches…

image

…and remove them to a plate when they’re done.

image

While the ribs are sizzling, grab the onion and tomatoes…

image

…throw them in a blender

image

…and blitz until smooth.

image

Once the spare ribs are seared…

image

…add the minced garlic to the empty pot off the heat.

image

I take the pot off the heat so the garlic doesn’t burn — that’ll add a yucky metallic taste and it’ll ruin your curry.

Stir the garlic until fragrant (30 seconds) before adding the tomato and onion puree.

image

Put the pot back on a burner set at medium heat.

image

Add curry powder, salt, 1 cup chopped cilantro, and lemon juice.

image

Bring to a boil…image

 …and add the lamb back in.

image

Mix the spareribs to coat with curry sauce.

image

Lock on the pressure cooker lid and increase heat to high to bring up to high pressure. Once high pressure is reached, decrease the heat to low to maintain high pressure for 20 minutes.

image

Let the pressure release naturally (10-15 minutes).

image

Taste for seasoning and stir in scallions and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.
