BBQ Pork Ribs - Instantpot

BBQ Pork Ribs - Instantpot

1-pack pork ribs

1-1/2 cup apple cider, root beer or 1 cup apple cider vinegar + 1/2 cup water

1 cup bbq sauce

Dry Rub:

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Remove the membrane from your ribs.

  2. Cover the ribs with the dry rub.

  3. Place the trivet in the instantpot.

  4. Place the ribs on top the trivet. I usually wrap one rack of ribs around the edge of the Instantpot. If making two racks, I can wrap the second rack inside the first.

  5. Set your Instantpot to 25-minutes, allow a 10-minute natural pressure release (NPR).

  6. Remove ribs from the Instantpot and cover with bbq sauce then either broil or bbq for 5-minutes, to get crispy.

  7. Fall off the bone ribs in under an hour- Enjoy!
