Instant Pot Ribs Recipe
Dry Rub for Pork Ribs
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 2½ – 3 lbs. baby back ribs
- 1 cups beef stock (or water)
- Instant Pot Homemade BBQ Sauce (We love Sweet Baby Ray’s if you don’t want to make homemade)
1. Combine ingredients for the dry rub in a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
2. Carefully remove membrane from back of baby back ribs. It’s easiest to get it started with a sharp knife, then grip the end with a paper towel and pull. Don’t skip this step! It makes the difference between tender ribs and tough ones.
4. Add beef broth or water to Instant Pot and insert the metal rack. Place the seasoned ribs on their sides on top of the insert. (Do not stack them flat on top of each other).
5. Lock the Instant Pot lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to high for 30 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
7. Once cooking time is complete, do a quick release by flipping the sealing valve to the “Venting” position. Unlock and remove the Instant Pot lid and carefully transfer ribs to prepared baking sheet. Brush ribs with a generous amount of BBQ sauce on each side.
8. Pre-heat broiler to high and broil the ribs for 3-5 minutes or until the BBQ sauce is caramelized. Remove from oven and cool slightly before cutting into individual portions. Serve immediately with extra BBQ sauce for dipping.
