Instant Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Instant pot BBQ baby back ribs

Dry Rub:
1 tbsp pepper
1/2 tbsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp brown sugar
Additional 1/4 cup brown sugar
BBQ Sauce:
1 cup Sweet Baby Ray’s
1 tbsp dry rub
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

begin by washing your ribs and removing the membrane. Combine dry seasoning to make the dry rub. Save one tablespoon of dry rub for barbecue sauce later. Add the additional 1/4 cup brown sugar to the dry rub seasoning. Now coat ribs in Honey and dry rub. Marinate ribs in the fridge for 15 minutes or for 1 hour for best results.
put ribs in the instant pot thick side down. Lock your lid and set the vent to sealing. Set timer for 30 minutes on high pressure under meat/stew.
When the timer is up, do a fast release. Careful it’s hot! Set oven to Broil on high. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil. For best results use a roasting rack, but it is optional. I didn’t use one the first two times I made this recipe and they were still delicious.
Coat the ribs in the barbecue sauce we made and broil for 10 to 13 minutes on high. When it’s done, slather on a little extra barbecue sauce and serve.
