Instant Pot Barbecue Ribs



During the first nearly two years we've owned an Instant Pot, we have made plenty of amazing meals, many of which surprised me that they could be done so well in the appliance.

One meal my wife had suggested numerous times was a rack of ribs. Ribs are among one of my favorite foods and something I often order whenever given the chance at a restaurant. I had attempted them at home once or twice, both in the oven and on the grill and while they were okay, they weren't a great outcome for what ribs tend to cost.

Also, they took a good long while, so it was a more rare treat. I was extremely hesitant about trying to quick cook them and wasting the meat.



Eventually, I gave in and let her look up the suggested cook time, while I ran with the recipe.

I was AMAZED!

At this point we've done them in the IP, and no other way, nearly a dozen times without fail.

If you want fall off the bone, delectable ribs done in a fraction of the time, do your self a favor and try this recipe sooner than I did!

Instant Pot Barbecue Ribs
Serves 4

Curl the ribs around the inside of the Instant Pot.
Ingredients

salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cinnamon, cayenne, cumin, to taste
Baby Back Ribs
Bottled BBQ Sauce (I suggest Stubbs Sweet Heat)
1 cup Chicken Stock
1 tsp Hickory Liquid Smoke

Carefully remove the white membrane from the back of the ribs. Dry ribs well.

Rub desired amounts of each dry seasoning onto both sides of ribs.

Pour chicken stock and liquid smoke in bottom of the Instant Pot liner.

Curl ribs around inside of Instant Pot liner, on top of trivet. Cut ribs smaller if need be.

Cook on Manual High for 35-40 minutes.

Quick release the pressure.

Place ribs on a foil lined baking sheet and brush with your favorite BBQ Sauce.

Broil ribs for just long enough for sauce to get tacky. Flip ribs over and repeat on other side.


These succulent ribs go great with baked beans and potato salad. Try them once, and I bet they'll be a family favorite at your house, too!

  1. And, yet again, I am faced with the harsh reality that I am going to have to break down and buy and Instant Pot. :-P For this recipe, though, I'd have to pull a fast one on my husband: any and all ribs that we buy go directly into his smoker! This sounds super delicious, though, so I'll sneak some ribs past him one of these days that he's working late!
