Instant Pot Ribs!!!

I love ribs. I also found out I could make them in the instant pot. So, here is the recipe that I whipped up tonight. I promise, I will get back to craft related posts shortly, I am just really enjoying coming up with new uses for my instant pot. On a side note... I remembered to take photos!


  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 rack of ribs
  • Barbecue sauce
  1. Some people might sear the meat before pressurizing it, but I am a lazy cook and didn't do that. If you do want to sear it, just add some oil to the instant pot and use the saute function. Then continue with the recipe.
  2. Add the apple cider vinegar, water, and brown sugar to the bottom of the pot. Mix until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Put the ribs into the pot. I didn't notice a difference between the ribs in the liquid and the ribs not in the liquid. Feel free to use a trivet if you want.
    Sad little meat chunks.

  4. Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes with a quick release.
  5. Move the (rather gross looking) ribs to a foil lined pan and brush with barbecue sauce. Broil the ribs in the oven for 10 minutes. Flip the ribs over and repeat for another 10 minutes.
    I'm leaving this picture small because they really do look gross.
  6. Eat your delicious (and better looking) ribs.
    Oh yeah... way better looking.

    Glamour shot!


  • Try adding a couple drops of liquid smoke into the cooking liquid.
  • These ribs look GROSS after cooking. Don't let anyone see this step, they might think you are an awful cook.
  • These ribs went over great. I even did a taste testing to see if the ribs cooked in or out of the liquid tasted different. No major difference was noticed.
Thanks for reading. Let me know how your ribs turned out if you followed this recipe. I would love to know what you though of them.
