Instructions
  1. Soak dried bamboo shoots in cold water for 8 hours. Rinse under water and drain well.
  2. Remove membrane from the back of the ribs. Wash and cut between bones into small pieces, rinse and drain.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick sauté pan over high heat, or in the Instant Pot on the Saute function and adjust to high heat. Sauté ginger, green onion, garlic and star anise for about 1 minute. Toss in pork ribs, and cook for 3-4 minutes until the ribs start to turn brown
  4. Add bamboo shoots and sauté for another 1-2 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon cooking wine, 2 tablespoons premium dark soy sauce, 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, and 3 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil. If cooking in a separate pan, transfer contents to the Instant Pot.
  5. Cover the lid and place the pressure valve to “Seal” position. Press Manual” button and set 36 minutes of cooking time. When the program is done, wait another 5 minutes. Slowly release the pressure then open the lid.
  6. Select “Sauté” and set temperature to More. Stir occasionally until the sauce is reduced to 1/4 of its original volume. Transfer to a serving bowl, and serve over rice. Yummy!!

    Instructions were not all that clear. Turned out over cooked and not as flavourable as desired. But I learned how to tweak it and will enjoy it better. Sorry to sound mean.

    Really good. But yes, recipie is a little funky. Pressure is HIGH. Winter Shoots… Canned is fine. Star Anise is a vietnames simmer sauce and i ended up using the whole bottle (it was unclear how much to use as the bottle said it contained 4 servings and the recipe simply says use 1) i found the amount of multiple soy sausce AND salt ridiculous. So i just used 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. I ised 1 teaspoon of sugar. Also, sauce is quite greasy, so you will want to spoon off excess.
