You will score big with these easy Instant Pot Ribs. They are tender, juicy, and just fall of the bone delicious! Whether you're using baby back ribs or pork loin ribs, pressure cooking them will take a fraction of the time to prep the whole meal!
I have to be honest with you, I actually haven't tried making ribs in the oven - so I may be a little biased when I say this is my favorite method. If I can get away with a recipe being in the Instant Pot, count me in!
But seriously though, I've tested this recipe three times, and I have to say, for someone who never liked ribs, this has been a game changer! It's meaty, tender, juicy, and falls of the bone. It took me less than hour from start to finish. So next time you have friends over for a Super Bowl game or BBQ cookout, be sure to whip these up!
Unlike some rib recipes where it could take hours and require more active tending, the Instant Pot actually requires more hands free and you'll be done in record speed. My biggest issue with ribs way back when, is that they always came out dry from the oven and almost never fell of the bone. Hence why I never loved Ribs to begin with. But this recipe actually gives you that freedom to tweak it and it always comes out very moist and full of flavor.
On that note, I have a few tips to guarantee you the best ribs possible.
And Lets not forget the BBQ sauce! I've tried tons of barbeque sauce, and none have stood out to be except Stubb's BBQ Sauce. Hands down, the BEST one I've ever tasted!
The two most common types of ribs are Baby Back Ribs and Spare Ribs. Here are a few differences.
After the ribs are done cooking in the Instant Pot, transfer them to a wired rack and brush them with your BBQ sauce. I actually like to also boil them in the oven for a few minutes. Broiling will lightly crisp the top and slightly caramelize the sauce to become sweet and thick. You can apply a little bit extra sauce after you boil it too.
Some of my favorite side dishes to go along with ribs are:
