5-Ingredient Instant Pot™ Barbecue Pork Ribs
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon barbecue seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 lb baby back pork ribs, cleaned and cut in 4 (3- to 4-rib) sections
1/2 cup sweet & spicy BBQ sauce
1. Spray 6-quart Instant Pot™ insert with cooking spray. Mix broth, seasoning and Worcestershire sauce in insert. Add ribs; turn to coat. Stand ribs up against sides of insert.
2. Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 15 minutes. Select CANCEL. Keep pressure valve in SEALING position to release pressure naturally. Transfer ribs to cutting board; cool slightly. Discard cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, cut sections into individual ribs.
3. Position oven rack 4 inches from broiler element. Set oven control to broil. Line rimmed sheet pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Place ribs on foil; brush all over with BBQ sauce.
4. Broil ribs 2 to 4 minutes or until sticky, crispy and blackened in spots.
No broiler? Yes sir. No problem. While broiling adds nice flavor and color, the ribs will still be delicious if you need to skip that step.
Don't substitute larger ribs for the baby back ribs. This recipe was designed for the smaller racks, and larger ribs will not get tender in the same amount of time.
