Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs
Happy New Year! Let's make some ribs!

I love the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker! (I hope you got/bought one during their crazy black Friday sale). I bought it last year and have been trying out different meals. Most of the time I take a couple photos on Instagram stories, but today I used my new camera. Oh yes, I bought myself a new camera! Canon 80D...I'm still figuring things out and watching many YouTube videos.

Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs
My local Sprouts Market had a sale on pork ribs so I picked up some baby back ribs ($2.99/pound, bought about 1.5 pounds) and when I brought it home, I googled Baby Back Ribs Pressure Cooker! NPR's The Salt had a piece from 2015 that I used as my guide.

Sprinkled some spice on the ribs

Put it in the Pressure Cooker along with 1/2 cup of water or stock (I used hot water). (See the NPR piece if you have a larger rack...you should teepee the meat - the photos will make sense)

Seal the pressure cooker and set for 30 minutes high pressure.
(This isn't a photo of setting it for 30 minutes - this was taken right after it was done!)

I used bottled BBQ sauce from Trader Joe's. About 15 minutes before the ribs are done, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a sheet tray with foil.

After cooking is complete, quick release the steam (you can let it go naturally, but I was hungry) and remove the ribs.

Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs
Brush on BBQ sauce and bake for 8-10 minutes, turning once. Watch your smoke alarm because it's a super hot oven and the sweet BBQ will burn a bit.

Next time I'll add more BBQ sauce and maybe even make my own sauce but they were tasty and super fast to make in the pressure cooker (and oven).

Love your posts, stopped visiting only because your posts became few and far in between.

I'm on the fence about the Insta pot, because I own, 2 slow cookers and a rice cooker. Have you used the slow cook or rice cook function on your model? any thoughts?

@rcwillman Hi, Since I have one of those fancy Japanese rice cookers, I would never cook rice in anything else (really, that rice cooker is freaking amazing. I just wish it would clean my house too). Haven't used the slow cooker part yet...and probably won't. I like the speed of the pressure cooker. :) A few friends got one and they LOVE, I mean LOVE it. They cook a lot more than me and use it all the time (beans, pozole, soup, stews). For what it's worth! Since they sold a zillion of these, maybe you have a friend who has one and you can try it out :)
