Instant Pot BBQ Ribs

  • 1 rack of baby back pork ribs
  • Your favorite rib rub (I used Famous Dave’s)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke, optional
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce

Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.

Generously rub the ribs with your favorite rib rub, coating both sides.

Pour the water, apple cider and liquid smoke into the bottom of the pressure cooker pot.

Place the rack in the bottom of your pressure cooker, place the ribs on the rack, standing on their side, wrapping around the inside of the pot. (You can cut in two if you prefer).

Close the lid, making sure that the pressure relief valve is closed. Press the Meat button and set to 30 minutes. Do a Natural Pressure Release (NPR) for 12 minutes, then do a Quick Release (QR) to release any remaining pressure.

Carefully remove the ribs from the pressure cooker and transfer to a plate. Brush with your favorite BBQ sauce and then place on grill for a few minutes just to finish off.  When they’ve ‘crisped’ up enough and got grill marks to your liking, pull them off and enjoy!
