1. Combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine, brown sugar, honey, chili sauce, lime juice, garlic, sesame oil, and minced ginger in a blender and blend. Stir in ½ tsp. five-spice powder. Reserve ¾ cup of the sauce.

2. Combine the Creole seasoning, ground ginger, and the rest of the five-spice powder in small bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture all over the ribs.

3. Place the Inner Pot in the Pressure AirFryer. Add the ribs to the Inner Pot.  Pour the stock and the unreserved sauce over the ribs.

6. Place a wire rack inside the Inner Pot. Place 2–3 rib segments on the rack. Place the Air Frying Lid on the Pressure AirFryer.

When the first batch is cooked, repeat the cooking process with the rest of the ribs.
