Ingredients
  • 1slab baby back ribs
  • 2teaspoons salt
  • 2teaspoons pepper
  • 1cup apple juice
  • 1cup BBQ saucedivided, 1/4 cup and 3/4 cup
Instructions
  1. Liberally salt and pepper both sides of slab of ribs. Cut slab in half if it’s too big for your Instant Pot.
  2. Pour apple juice into Instant Pot. Place ribs into pot, drizzle with 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce and secure lid. Make sure it’s set to “sealing.”
  3. Set it to Manual timer for 25 minutes. It will take a few minutes to heat up and seal the vent. Once timer counts down, let sit another 5 minutes then release steam by turning valve to “venting.” Turn on oven to broil (or heat your grill) while you’re waiting for the 5 minute resting time.
  4. Remove ribs from Instant Pot and place on a baking sheet. Slather on both sides with remaining sauce.
  5. Place under broiler (or on grill) for 5-10 minutes, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn. Remove and brush with a bit more sauce. Pull apart and dig in!
