Cooked ribs with bbq sauce

Instant Pot Ribs

5 from 1 vote


  • 1 rack of baby back ribs
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Choice of BBQ sauce (I use The New Primal Barbeque Sauce)
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs, or ask your butcher to do it when you buy them.
  • Cut the ribs so there are three to four bones together in each chunk.
  • Salt and pepper each side.
  • Put chicken broth in the Instant Pot along with the trivet.
  • Place ribs on their side in the pot—don’t stack them.
  • Cook on manual high pressure for 25 minutes with quick release.
  • Add The New Primal Barbeque Sauce, or sauce of your choice. 
  • Option--after putting on BBQ sauce, place ribs under broiler for 10 minutes to caramelize sauce.
