The Salty Marshmallow: Instant Pot Country Style Ribs

I've been trying to think of new ways to use my Instant Pot, and I figured there must be a way to cook country style ribs in it.  For those not in the know, country style ribs can be quite delicious, but require a bit of cooking to get to the tender-and-delicious stage.  Instead of boiling them away on the stove top followed by baking in the oven, why not use a pressure cooker to speed things along?  In about an hour I had a delicious, easy dinner.

Instant Pot Country Style Ribs
Adapted from The Salty Marshmallow

1½ pounds country style pork ribs
¾ cup beef or chicken broth
½ cup barbecue sauce, plus more for serving

Dry rub:
1 tablespoon lightly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon each: kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

In a small bowl mix together the dry rub ingredients until well combined. Spread the dry rub evenly on both sides of the ribs and massage into the meat.

Pour the broth into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add the ribs to the Instant Pot and pour over the barbecue sauce.  Lock the lid on the pressure cooker. Cook on manual, high pressure, for 40 minutes. After cooking is finished, use the natural release method; this will take about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove ribs and serve immediately with extra barbecue sauce as desired.

Makes 4 servings
