BBQ Ribs

 Today I made the BEST BBQ ribs using the InstaPot!  This is a recipe I will be making again and again, it was so delicious.  Fareway had a sale a couple weeks ago on what they called “extra meaty” ribs.  I only got a half a rack which was around 1.5 pounds.  I froze them right away and then got them out a couple days before cooking.  Yesterday I opened the package up, cut the rack in half (about 4 ribs each) and sprinkled my Kingsford - no salt - all purpose season all over them.  Today I cooked them.  Here is what I did:

In the IP, I stood the ribs up (coil to fit).  Add 1/2 cup water and locked the lid.  Then cooked them on high for 20 minutes, then let them steam release for 20 minutes, then turn the valve to venting position and release any remaining steam.

Then I took the ribs out of the IP and put them on a foil-lined baking sheet.  I spread BBQ sauce on both sides.  (I use Cookies BBQ sauce as it is our favorite.). Final step - broil the ribs till charred in spots, about 5 minutes.  Brush with more sauce, continue broiling until bubbling, 3 more minutes. They are ready to eat.  Be prepared to be blow away…
