    Thank you, this looks delicious — should the Instant Pot pressure be on Low or High?

    Thank you, this was so delicious and easy. I did not soak the rice for eight hours, only 3 and it came out tender.

    Hi maomaoma

    Thank you for the recipe. It looks so yummy that I have been wanting to try making it the day I bought my instant pot. I don’t have regular sticky rice, can I substitute it with black sticky rice. Thanks.

    this looks wonderful and I can’t wait for my package of sticky rice to arrive so I can begin…When you say “baby ribs” are you talking about beef short ribs or pork baby back ribs?

    Thank you for your help,
