  • Instant Pot (or Pressure Cooker)


  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds rack of ribs beef or pork
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • ½ cup bbq sauce


  • Take the slab of ribs (make sure that they are defrosted) and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  Leave them together or you can cut them into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each).
  • Pour the Apple Juice into the bottom of the pan
  • Place the Ribs in the Instant Pot by folding them into a half circle, or if they are cut, place them on top of each other.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot and cook on Manual for 25 minutes. (Make sure the knob is turned to sealing, not venting)
  • After they are done in the Instant Pot, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will literally fall apart when you touch them).
  • Gently brush the ribs with BBQ sauce.
  • Place them onto a foil lined cookie sheet. Cook them on Broil for a few minutes (be sure to watch them)
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.
