Asian Short Ribs (Pressure Cooker)

Another pressure cooker cookbook hit! I halved this recipe and it still turned out really well. Ideally boneless ribs are the choice here, but I could only find bone-in.

Chicken Yakitori

My sister’s been raving about this recipe for months, so I figured I should try it for the challenge. Good stuff!
