Learn how to make Instant Pot Ribs in just 30 minutes using a simple dry rub recipe. You can brush these delicious Instant Pot Pork Ribs with your favorite BBQ Sauce, perfect for dinner any day of the week. 


  • 1 rack baby back pork ribs
  • ½ tbsp cumin
  • ½ tbsp paprika
  • ½ tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp chili powder
  • ½ tbsp onion powder
  • ½ tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar (use Swerve brown sugar for a keto replacement)  
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • ½ tsp liquid smoke (optional) 
  • BBQ sauce (optional) 




Always combine your seasonings together first to make the dry rub. 

Pulling the membrane off the ribs prior to cooking helps the flavors and seasonings soak into the meat, and will make them more tender. 

Broil ribs on high for 5-8 minutes or Air Fry at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes or until desired crispiness has been reached. 

BBQ Sauce is optional 

If using frozen ribs: Season and cut the rack into thirds before initially freezing. Pressure cook on High for 35 minutes. 

Paleo Option: To make this recipe paleo friendly, replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar instead. 

Keto and Low Carb Option: You are going to want to replace the brown sugar with Swerve Brown Sugar and use a low carb BBQ sauce which is perfect for those who are eating low carb. 

To Reheat: (Microwave) Place the pressure cooker ribs in a microwave-safe bowl or plate, and heat for 60-90 seconds. Oven: Place the leftover pressure cooker ribs in the oven for about 10 minutes or until they are heated through.  

To Store: Place them in a container and store them in the fridge for 3-4 days. 

To Freeze: Wrap your leftover ribs in freezer paper or foil and place in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just keep in mind that you should not freeze the leftover ribs if the ribs were already previously frozen.
