Easiest Instant Pot Boneless Ribs!

This recipe will speed up the rib-making process for an easy and delicious weeknight meal! With just a few basic ingredients, and this pressure cook-then-broil method, you’ll have tender, pull-apart boneless ribs that taste like they’ve roasted all day in less than 40 minutes!

You will need:

  • 2-3lbs Boneless Pork Ribs (these sometimes come partially cut/connected, just cut apart so you have individual ribs)
  • Salt and Pepper (or your favorite everyday seasoning)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • Barbeque Sauce – I use Sweet Baby Ray’s

How To:

  • Prepare your Instant Pot. If you’re like me and can’t find your Instant Pot trivet when you need it, simply roll up long strips of aluminum foil into a coil and place in the base of your pot. The idea is to keep the ribs off the bottom to prevent that dreaded BURN notice.
  • Prepare your ribs. Cut ribs apart if needed and lay on a sheet pan. Salt/pepper/season all sides and add to Instant Pot on top of foil, piling up on top of each other.
  • Add water to your pot and close the lid with the vent set to sealing. Set your pot to High Pressure (turn off keep warm function) for 17 minutes.
  • When cooking is complete, let naturally release for 5 minutes, then open valve to fully release. While pressure is releasing, preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  • When oven is ready, place ribs on a clean sheet pan and coat with barbeque sauce. Roast for 5-7 minutes; flip and roast another 5 minutes (or to desired crispness) and enjoy with your favorite sides.
