Instant Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Thick juicy sizzling Baby Back Ribs are a thing of real beauty. The Instant Pot pressure feature locks in the rub and the natural juices of the thick well marbled ribs. All that is left for you to do is coat your preferred thickness of your favorite BBQ sauce over the Baby Back Ribs and broil to smoldering perfection. Then slice and serve.

The caramelized BBQ sauce makes for a messy but delicious meal. My favorite cut of Pork Ribs are the Baby Back ribs. This recipe will have the bones extruding just right and the meat will be fork tender faster than any other method of cooking them I have tried. 

Thick, tender fall off the bone ribs are simple and very tasty. Follow the video and the instructions below to add Baby Back Ribs to your summer experience minus to out door smoke and heat.

Juicy, Tender & Flavorful Ribs

In a small bowl: combine brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and mix.

Clean and pat the ribs dry with a paper towel. Place the ribs meat side down on the cutting board. Pull the skin membrane off the back of the ribs and discard it.

Coat both sides of the ribs with the rub mixture. Place the ribs on top of the trivet (you’ll have to form the ribs into a circle).

Pour apple cider and liquid smoke in the cooker. Put the trivet in.

Place the lid on. Pressure cook on high for 20 minutes with a 10 minutes natural release (exercise caution when releasing pressure from the cooker). Follow the manufacture instructions for releasing the pressure. Remove the lid. 

Note: St. Louis Style – cook on high for 25 minutes and 10 minutes natural release. Spare Ribs – cook on high for 25 minutes and 15 minutes natural release.

Place a wire rack on a baking sheet. Then, transfer the ribs (meat side up) to the wire rack (I used 2 tongs to help transfer the ribs to the baking sheet).

Generously baste the ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce. Place the ribs in the oven and broil on high for 5-8 minutes or until caramelized.

Remove the ribs from the oven and baste with sauce again (optional).

Cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Place the ribs on a cutting board and cut between the bones.

Serve & Enjoy!
