  4. Once cooking is complete, release pressure naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release remaining pressure. Remove ribs, mushrooms, and onions to a large serving platter; cover to keep warm.
  5. Press BROWN/SAUTE and heat cooking liquid on HIGH. Combine water and flour together in a small bowl, then whisk into the cooking pot. Cook, uncovered, 5 to 10 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Serve over mashed potatoes with thickened sauce. Enjoy!
