    Hi Mao Mao Mom,

    I just wanted to say that this is the second recipe I have tried with my new instant pot, and it’s one of the best dish I have ever tasted, it’s soooooo delicious! I’m very impressed! Thank you

  3. Margaret says:

    Is the rice supposed to be already cooked in step “3”?

    Found your Steamed Pork Ribs with Crushed Rice recipe in the “Instant Pot Recipe Booklet”.

    I can’t get Glutinous Rice or Sticky Rice where I live. Can I just use Jasmine rice?

    In Step 2 is the rice pre-cooked or raw? All dry ingredients: rice, peppercorns, anise, stick cinnamon. No liquid or oil???

    I have 2-1/2 lbs of ribs. Should I increase the cooking time?

    Thanky you for any advice. Larry in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
