  1. Combine juice, vinegar, and liquid smoke in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Add bay leaves.
  2. Add a trivet to the pot and place ribs on top, trimming as needed to fit. Close and lock the lid; set valve to sealing. Choose high pressure and set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  3. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 15 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Cook on manual for 15 minutes on high pressure if you want ribs to still have a slight pull when biting and be able to brown them on the grill or broil the rack without meat falling off the bone. You can do 25 minutes for extra-tender, almost fall-off-the-bone ribs.

Made as recipe stated with boneless ribs. Was very flat, so I covered in Sweet Baby Rays Barbecue Sauce and broiled in oven for 10 minutes. Very tasty and tender.

Not tender Not flavorful Had to broil it 6 more minutes. Needed more seasoning or a ton of BBQ sauce. Sorry not a winner

Fast and Easy when you want ribs but don’t have all day for grilling. I followed recipe exactly as written and used Sweet Baby Rays Hickory and Brown Sugar sauce. Excellent

Fall off the bone ribs...a little too much. I also took them out slathered them in BBQ sauce and placed under broiler for a few minutes. Fast and easy!!
