1.5 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
1 Tablespoon Sweet Paprika
1 teaspoon Cumin
For the Instant Pot:
1 onion, sliced thin
1 cup water
To Finish Ribs:
Some of your favorite BBQ sauce.
Rinse, dry and cut rack of ribs into 4 pieces. 2 racks can JUST fit in my large 10 qt. Instant Pot.
Mix spice rub. Spread over ribs.
POUR 1 cup of water into instant pot.
Arrange ribs, standing, around pot, making sure to leave space for the steam to evenly cook the ribs. In other words, the meat should be spaced evenly, not squished together. Put sliced onions over and BETWEEN all the ribs.
Did you add the 1 cup of water to the instant pot before you put the ribs in? This step is necessary to create steam. IF you didn’t do it earlier, do it now.
PRESSURE COOK ON HIGH FOR 25 minutes.
Natural release for 10 minutes
Now, you can cool the ribs on a sheet pan and refridgerate them until time to final cook them! They should be fully cooked at this point.
When you are ready to cook them, even if that’s right after coming out of the instant pot, slather your favorite BBQ sauce over the top.
Bake for 7 – 10 minutes on each side @ 425 degrees or until desired doneness.
