Beef Back Ribs  (Instant Pot)

Barbecue beef ribs are always a fun (and messy) dinner option! With this Instant Pot beef rib recipe, you can have fall off the bone ribs in half the time.



1 small rack beef ribs ½ cup water ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar

Dry Rub Mix 1 ½ tbsp salt 3 tbsp brown sugar 1 ½ tbsp paprika 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp black pepper

Quick BBQ Sauce ¾ cup ketchup 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp mustard 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce ½ tsp liquid smoke 2 tsp paprika

In the bottom of your Instant Pot, place ½ cup of water and ½ cup of apple cider vinegar.

Combine all of the ingredients for the dry rub inside a bowl and set it aside.



Take a rack of beef ribs and slice them so that they are no more than 2 ribs per bunch. This will help them to fit inside of the Instant Pot.

Flip the ribs over to reveal their backs, and then using a sharp paring knife, make score marks down the rib bones, and on the silverskin/membrane.

Smother your ribs, front and back, with the dry rub mix you made. You will not need all of it!

Stack your beef ribs so that they are offset and going in opposite directions. Place them on the trivet and lower them into your pressure cooker.

Close the lid and set it to High Pressure for 22 minutes. Do a Natural Pressure Release for 10 minutes before releasing the remaining pressure.

In a bowl, mix all of the BBQ sauce ingredients until well blended.

Set your oven to High Broil. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Place the ribs on the sheet, carefully.

Brush the homemade BBQ sauce over the tops of the ribs and underneath.

High Broil for 5 minutes until caramelized looking.

Serve and Enjoy!
