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.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE INSTANT POT RIBS

2 tbsp Kosher Salt
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 rack Baby Back Ribs
12 oz can Coke
1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke
1 cup BBQ Sauce

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT RIBS

Combine first 7 ingredients and mix together to make a rub. Set aside.
Remove membrane from back side of ribs by loosening at one end with a knife and grabbing with paper towel and pulling off.
Apply rub to both sides of ribs and place in a ring inside of Instant Pot.
Pour Coke and Liquid Smoke into center of pot.
Pressure cook on manual high for 30 minutes with no warming and allow pressure to release naturally.
Preheat oven to 400.
Transfer ribs to broiler pan and brush with your favorite BBQ sauce.
Bake 10-15 minutes watching to ensure ribs don’t burn.

    I have made these ribs a lot and love them. I have never timed them as you suggested, but I let the pressure cooker heat naturally until it starts timing. My question is whether these turn out good if I start timing them as soon as I seal the Instant Pot. I was worried they would be undercooked. Please advise. Ellie

    OMG! I am out of the country and it’s hard to get meat you can actually chew. Saw the ribs and your recipe and magic happen.
    Absolutely fantastic. Loved the rub, it was perfect.I will never do ribs any other way!
    Thank you.

    1. Thanks much for the review Sherry. I do not use my pressure cooker as often as I use. But, when we make ribs, this is usually the recipe I insist on using. It’s super easy and the ribs are moist and full of flavor. I hope you enjoy your time outside the country and have a wonderful New Year.
