Fall Off the Bone Instant Pot Baby Back Ribs

I have many favorites with recipes, but this fall off the bone Instant Pot baby back ribs is my new favorite meat recipe! This is the first Instant Pot recipe I have blogged about because I don’t use this cooking technique often, but after tasting these bad boys, I’m inspired to get creative.

When it comes to meat, if your pocketbook allows, I always recommend investing a few dollars more in better quality, free-range, pasture-raised, and local chicken, beef, pork, lamb, and turkey

whenever possible. You will really taste the difference in flavor and quality of your baby back ribs.

I recently discovered how much I adore Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce and Marinade after using it on these ribs. This sweet sauce includes the flavors of brown sugar, caramelized molasses, pineapple juice, hickory smoke, chili peppers, and orange peel set into a tomato base.

Feel free to use your favorite BBQ sauce in this recipe but I highly recommend you give this sauce a try if you have a Trader Joe’s in your area or you can buy it here. The flavor profile works beautifully with pork ribs.

When I think of baby back ribs, I think Southern Comfort food. Since this tender, juicy finger food takes center stage in the meal, I prefer to pair this dish with simple side dishes like my spiced roasted potatoes and crunchy steamed sugar snap peas to enhance the authentic BBQ experience.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook

Instructions
  1. Rinse and pat dry the ribs before adding salt and pepper to the back and front of the meat.
  2. Place baby back ribs standing up in the Instant Pot. Pour the beef stock or water into the pot and lock the top in place.
  3. Turn the temperature to high pressure and 25 minutes. Once the timer goes off, allow the steam to release naturally for 20 minutes. Using the handle of a utensil, release the valve until all of the pressure is gone. Open the top and transfer the ribs to a lined baking sheet.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425°F. While the oven is heating, brush the tops and bottom of ribs generously with the BBQ sauce. Transfer the ribs to the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Cut the ribs in to single sections allowing 3 ribs per serving.
Recipe Notes

Important: For tender, flavorful ribs, ask your butcher to remove the tough membrane on the back of the ribs. Cooking the ribs with the membrane attached results in a tougher texture rib.

Allowing the Instant Pot to release most of the steam naturally results in much more tender meat.
