Mouthwatering BBQ ribs that literally fall off the bone are made in UNDER one hour by using an electric pressure cooker and this tasty smoky & sweet rub seasoning recipe! If you think these ribs look amazing, they taste even better and are so easy to make!
Have you ever cooked with a pressure cooker?
A pressure cooker is an airtight pot in which food can be cooked quickly under steam pressure. Although it looks like a slow cooker, it actually functions in the exact opposite way since it cooks food very quickly. For instance, I can use my pressure cooker to cook a pot roast in just 35-40 minutes, chicken breasts in 8-10 minutes, white rice in 8 minutes, dried beans in 30 minutes, and corn on the cob in 3-4 minutes. Isn’t that amazing? 🙂
On a personal note – I’m fairly new to pressure cooking so I have been researching different ways to fully use my 6 Quart Instant-Pot Pressure Cooker. I like that my pressure cooker has a slow cooker setting as well so it can completely replace my slow cooker meaning less clutter in the kitchen! I’m looking forward to trying out more recipes and sharing what I learn here on Hip2Save.
30 Minute Pressure Cooker BBQ Ribs
- 1 rack baby back pork ribs
- Smoky & Sweet BBQ Rub (see recipe below or use your favorite BBQ Seasoning Blend)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup your favorite BBQ Sauce
Alternative Slow Cooker Directions:
Use the same method and ingredients as stated above except cook ribs in your slow cooker for 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW. Finish in the broiler or on the grill. This is how I’ve made ribs in the past and they turn out awesome as well!
This is by far the best BBQ seasoning I’ve ever made! It will make your food burst with flavor and is perfect for all your summer BBQ needs! I typically double the recipe as I use it all the time to season chicken, pork loin, and veggies AND it makes the BEST roasted seasoned potatoes! Yum!! Feel free to adapt to your taste (i.e. if you don’t like anything spicy, decrease or omit cayenne pepper).
