Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs – Dry-Rubbed

I don’t usually eat my ribs without sauce. Really almost never. But every now and then we give up sugar in our diets for a short season, like now. So I decided to develop a seasoning blend that would make ribs tasty even without the sugar. Not sure if you’re aware or not, but pretty much every rib rub and sauce are packed full of sugar! Well, this Instant Pot baby back ribs recipe leaves out the sugar but remains interesting enough to even be eaten without the sauce. At least I think so.
