Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs with Dark Cherry BBQ Sauce

Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs with Dark Cherry BBQ Sauce

These quick and easy Instant Pot baby back ribs are really tender and delicious. The cinnamon and rosemary in the dry rub complement the flavors in this savory Dark Cherry BBQ Sauce, but the flavors pair well with just about any barbeque sauce you prefer. Tip: Place the ribs under a hot broiler after cooking in the Instant Pot for a mouth-watering, caramelized crust.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Other Ingredients:

  • 2½ - 3 lbs. baby back ribs
  • 1 cup beef stock or water
  • Dark Cherry BBQ Sauce (See recipe below) or BBQ sauce of choice

Instructions

  • Combine ingredients for the dry rub in a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Carefully remove the membrane from the back of baby back ribs with a sharp knife, if necessary. Cut the ribs into 3 or 4 equal-sized parts and work the dry rub into each section on both sides. Set aside.
  • Add beef broth or water to Instant Pot and insert the silicone trivet. Place the seasoned ribs on their sides on top of the insert. (Do not stack them flat on top of each other).
  • Lock the Instant Pot lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to high for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • Once cooking time is complete, do a quick release (QR) by flipping the sealing valve to the “Venting” position. Unlock and remove the Instant Pot lid and carefully transfer ribs to a prepared baking sheet. Brush ribs with a generous amount of BBQ sauce on each side.
  • Pre-heat broiler to high and broil the ribs for 3-5 minutes or until nicely browned. Remove from oven and cool slightly before cutting into individual portions. Serve immediately with extra BBQ sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
