There are days when I just crave some BBQ Baby Backs or my son BEGS for them and who has hours to cook during the week? These are the perfect solution to giving the family a special meal on a weeknight. Heck they are so easy my hubby says why not make them like this all the time. I think he is trying to get out of grillin’ ya’ll.

Napkins are optional, because these are finger lickin’ good! 

Here’s what you need!

  •  Baby Bak Ribs
  • Garlic Salt
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Can Coke, Beer or Root Beer (All are so good, each give a different flavor)
  • Liquid Smoke
  • BBQ Sauce to taste

Here’s How to do it!

Pull the membrane off the bottom of the ribs.  Do be honest most of the time I skip this. I know the PIT Masters are calling me all kinds of names. But hey I hear today is National Lazy Mom’s Day (Sept 1), so I am taking one for the mom team!

Then cut ribs in half or thirds. Mix garlic salt, cayenne pepper, paprika and brown sugar and sprinkle and rub into ribs.

Seasoning on Instant Pot Ribs

Place rack into instant pot (I used the one that came with it). Place ribs into pot standing up. Pour coke, beer or root beer in. These all have a different flavor that are all so good. I like to change it up or use what I have on hand!

 Pour in Coke

Now add liquid smoke into bottom of instant pot.

Set instant pot to manual, high pressure for 30 minutes.

 Ribs in Instant Pot

When done let natural release for 15 minutes. Open valve and let remaining pressure release.

Set oven to broil. Place ribs on a baking sheet. Brush desired amount of BBQ Sauce on ribs. Just use what you love. My favorite bottled is KC Masterpiece. It has a little kick and a little sweetness. I also use the one from my Honey Chipotle BBQ Wings sometimes.

Put baking sheet in oven and broil for about 5 minutes until sauce in cooked in and caramelized.  Keep eye out on them as ovens vary.
