Instant Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs

Ryan and I have really enjoyed our subscription to Butcher Box, a humanely, pasture raised meat service. One thing we always get is baby back ribs. I had never tried making ribs before, so it was a bit intimidating to figure out. Once I discovered this recipe - the rest was history. It is SO delicious. I honestly think these are the best ribs I've ever had. They just fall right off the bone.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2lbs Baby Back Ribs

  • 1 1/2 Cup of Primal Kitchen Golden BBQ Sauce (or sauce of your choice. I like Primal Kitchen because there's no sugar!)

  • 1tbsp Liquid Smoke (though, I've never had this to use)

  • 1tbsp Parsley

  • 1tbsp Paprika

  • 1tbsp Onion Powder

  • 1tbsp Garlic Salt

  • 1tbsp Salt

  • 1tbsp Pepper

  • 1/4 Cup of Coconut Sugar

  • 1 cup Water

  • 1tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 1tbsp Worcheshire Sauce

Here's all you have to do:

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.

  • Coat the front and back of the ribs with the rub over the instant pot, so the excess rub falls into the pot.

  • Add the water, apple cider vinegar, and Worcheshire sauce to the pot.

  • Cook on manual for 25 minutes. When it's done, wait 10 minutes before releasing the steam.

  • Place the ribs on a baking sheet.

  • Mix the BBQ saucs and liquid smoke and slather on top of the ribs.

  • Broil in the oven for 5 minutes.
