  • Select Meat setting according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Wait 15 minutes before releasing pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Place ribs onto the prepared baking pan and slather with barbeque sauce.

  • Cook under the broiler for 5 minutes. Remove and immediately add more sauce.

Fall off the bone indeed. While these will never replace ribs done on a smoker, that is also a weekend thing and very time consuming. These are PERFECT for a week night meal. They may take an hour to finish but only 5 minutes of that is of your actual time. The rest is fuss free. Excellent recipe! Read More

I loved my ribs. Delicious. fall of the bone tender and melted in my mouth. I didn't have the liquid smoke so I added smoked BBQ in the pot I also didn't have the apple cider vinegar so used red wine! Next time I make this (and I will) I will get the ingredient's that this recipe called for. Big thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More
