If you have a love for side ribs, you have to give these Instant Pot Apple BBQ Side Ribs a try! They are finger-licking good, that have tender meat that falls of the bone.
Trim most of the visible fat off the ribs
In a bowl, mix all the dry seasonings together.
Cut the ribs into 2 rib sections. Season the ribs, both front and back, liberally
Pour the apple juice into the IP insert bowl. Place the metal rack that comes with the IP into the bottom of the insert bowl.
Arrange the ribs in a square type fashion, so that there is a center hole down the column of ribs.
Place the top of the IP and set the toggle switch to “seal”. On manual setting, set the time for 25 minutes. After the time is up, do a 10-minute natural release.
Remove the lid after the silver pin and dropped. CAREFULLY remove the ribs and place them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Mix the BBQ sauce together with about a half cup of the cooking juices from the ribs.
Baste the sauce mixture onto the ribs, liberally. Broil for 2 – 3 minutes until you begin to see some caramelization. CAREFULLY flip the ribs and baste again with the sauce, and broil again for 2 – 3 minutes.
