Easy and Amazing Pressure Cooker Ribs

Memorial Day is here. Which means summer is here. And you know what that means… RIBS! I feel like I probably started eating ribs before I could walk. And as a ribs connoisseur, this pressure cooker ribs recipe definitely does not disappoint. I hope everyone learns to cook ribs this way so I don’t have to eat chewy, dry ribs ever again!


And as Always… Please Pin & Share the Love!

    Are there measurements for the spices or do you just sprinkle on?

      There are measurements, but it’s kind of a secret ratio recipe. They are listed in order from greatest to least amounts.

    The ribs and whole meal that this company put together was perfect. Chef Gary has real talent in not only professionalism and etiquette but also with the food quality. These ribs were on point! I remember my Dad when I was growing up, trying to make perfect ribs. Who knew all he needed was Gary’s recipe and an instant pot!?

    If you’re reading this far and you haven’t already gone to the store to try this today. Stop and try it!

    I love the dry spice and BBQ sauce mix – that really makes it! These look amazing. I haven’t tried ribs in the Instant Pot yet, but they’re high on my to-do list.
