    Just made these tonight with a lamb my daughter/granddaughter raised. Did the suggested 25 min and 10 min release. Ribs very tender, fell off the bones, was delicious!

    Lamb ribs need longer as they came out tough even though I cut them into ribs of 2. Will try 25min with 10min natural release next time.
