  1. Season ribs with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place a layer of onion in the bottom of a pressure cooker. Add a layer of ribs. Repeat with remaining onion and ribs.
  3. Combine barbeque sauce and broth together in a bowl; pour over ribs in the pressure cooker.
  4. Close cooker securely and place pressure regulator over vent according to manufacturer's instructions. Heat until steam escapes in a steady flow and makes a whistling sound, about 5 minutes. Adjust heat until regulator is gently rocking. Cook for 25 minutes. Transfer the pressure cooker to the sink; cool the pot with cold water for about 30 seconds to release pressure quickly.

Meat was tender. 25 minutes on high pressure seems like a good amount of time.

Flavorful, cut with a fork ribs. I used an Instant Pot for 25 minutes and quick pressure release. For a quick and easy meal this one will work.

I rubbed it down with stonehill savory vegetable seasoning and let it sit in fridge for a hour before continuing with recipe. It turned out great!

This is a very good recipe. Unfortunately my ribs were fatty, but the flavor was very goood.

I made this today using bone in pork spare ribs. The rack was almost 3 pounds. I cut it into 3 chunks to fit in my pressure cooker. Used a whole vidalia onion. Made the sauce as instructed. ...

This is good and easy. I browned the meat on all sides first, and therefore 25 minutes in the pressure cooker might have been a tad too long. The onion was really good too.

Delicious with a capital D!!! Easy and fabulous!
