These Instant Pot Ribs are so delicious, flavorful, tender and best of all easy to make with only 5 ingredients and 30 minutes cook time! Pair with your favorite roasted vegetable for an easy weeknight dinner!
Pat dry all sides of rib racks. Removing the membrane is not necessary but feel free to do so. Season generously with dry rub.
Place wire trivet in the bottom of the inner pot of the pressure cooker and add water to the pot.
Place the ribs upright in the pot, coiling them inside if needed.
Secure lid and close the vent. Press Manual and press +/- to select 30 minutes of cooking time.
When the cooking cycle has completed, allow to Natural Pressure Release (NPR) for 15 minutes, followed by Quick Pressure Release (QPR) by turning the valve to release pressure.
OPTIONAL: Remove the ribs with a pair of tongs and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Broil on high for 4 minutes for that crispy skin.
If using BBQ sauce, slather it on the ribs just before popping under the broiler.
