Cook's Tip:  This recipe can be made in a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. Place beef short ribs and onion in pressure cooker; add 1/2 cup beef broth. Close and lock pressure cooker lid. Use beef, stew or high-pressure setting on pressure cooker; program 60 minutes on pressure cooker timer. Meanwhile, combine 1-1/2 cups mango, ginger and barbecue sauce in medium saucepan. Simmer 20 to 30 minutes until desired thickness is reached. Use quick-release feature to release pressure; carefully remove lid. Continue as directed in Step 2. Serve ribs with prepared sauce. (This recipe variation was tested in an electric pressure cooker at high altitude. Cooking at an altitude of less than 3000 feet may require slightly less cooking time. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.)

Cook's Tip:  Short ribs can be served over mashed sweet potatoes, if desired.

Cook's Tip:  Three pounds bone-in short ribs may be substituted for boneless short ribs.

Cook's Tip:  Other flavors of barbecue sauce may be substituted for hickory-flavor.
