INSTANT POT RIBS
My family LOVES ribs. I usually have to make 2-2.5 racks just to be able to feed this large family of mine. I will confess… In the past, I have made them often but not often enough to please my family. That was until I started making our ribs in our Instant Pot. Before, making ribs was sort of a pain in the butt. I would need my large stock pot and the ribs seemed like they took forever to boil. I think the flavor that we have in the our Instant Pot Ribs is so much better. They cook so quickly and they really fall right off the bone.
I have been making so many new recipes in the Instant Pot. It can be a bit of trial and error but once we have the recipe down, it makes for perfect quick, easy, and tasty meals. I can not tell you how many times I have made our Instant Pot Corn on the Cob this summer. Way too many to count. Having such a easy recipe that I can make in very little time has been great.
My Instant Pot has become a permanent small appliance on my countertop. If you do not own one yet, I highly recommend getting yourself one. They make cooking meals so much faster. You can check out my post and Instant Pot recommendations in my What is an Instant Pot? post.
You will need some baby back ribs, a few spices for an amazing rub, a can of Coke, liquid smoke, and your favorite bbq sauce. The liquid smoke really adds some great flavor. You can find it right at your grocery store. It is really inexpensive (like around #$2). In my grocery store it was located near all the marinades and bbq sauces. Obviously you could make this recipe without it but… I highly suggest adding it for flavor. This recipe could easily be doubled if you are needing to make 2 racks of baby back ribs. You will want to double everything except still use just one can of Coke. Do not add any additional liquid to your pressure cooker.
