Servings: 6 servings
For the Ribs
- 2 ½-3 lbs. Country Style Pork Ribs sometimes called “Pork Loin Country Style Ribs” bone-in or boneless
- ¾ cup beef broth or water
- 3/4 cup BBQ sauce divided (plus more for serving)
For the Dry Rub
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper optional
Combine the dry rub ingredients (brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne) together in a small bowl. Apply rub evenly on both sides of the meat. Lightly pat so dry rub sticks to meat. Set aside.
Pour beef broth into the Instant Pot and add1/4 cup BBQ sauce. Mix thoroughly. Add the Country Style Ribs to the bottom of the pot (trying not to overlap too much). Pour the remaining 1/2 cup BBQ sauce over the ribs to cover meat.
Secure/Lock the lid and set the Pressure release to sealing. Select the Manual setting and set the cooking time to 30 minutes.
Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. While the pressure is releasing, preheat oven to broil (400 F ) and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat.
After pressure has released for 10 minutes, move the Pressure Release to Venting/Quick Release and allow any remaining steam to be removed. Open the Instant Pot and transfer the ribs (carefully with tongs or a slotted spoon, the meat will be very tender) to the prepared sheet pan, discarding any cooking liquid.
Optional Step- Brush the top side of the ribs with BBQ sauce and broil for about 5- 8 minutes, until the ribs have become browned and BBQ sauce is caramelized.
