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!

Ingredients

  • 1 rack baby back ribs
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • brown sugar
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • allspice
  • chili powder
  • cinnamon
  • BBQ sauce

Instructions

  1. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.
  2. In a small bowl - combine spices together, making sure to break up the brown sugar (with a fork or whisk). The actual measurements are a "secret" from a friend, but just think of t this way... Use more of the spices listed at the top and less as you go down the list. Then season ribs liberally on both sides with spice mix.
  3. Add 1 cup of water and a trivet into the pressure cooker. Place the ribs on top of the trivet. Lock lid, close vent, and set manual timer for 20 minutes. Then allow pressure to naturally release.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  5. Transfer ribs to a baking tray and brush sauce all over the ribs on both sides. Switch the oven to low broil. Place ribs in the oven on bottom rack for 7 minutes each side. I recommend doing bone-side-up first.
  6. Remove, serve, and enjoy!

    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.

    Could you finish on grill instead of oven for bit of charred taste? Have you tried this is the mini or does it need to be bigger?

      I’m sure using the grill would work great! Just be sure to crank the heat. And I think a mini would be too small.

    I’m new to this whole InstantPot thing… Is your recipe with frozen or thawed ribs?

    Thanks!

      Fresh and thawed. I won’t ever recommend cooking frozen meat.

      This recipe is for one rack of ribs and is calculated (and listed) as six servings.
