Stove Top Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs — BBQ sauce

Previously made similar recipe with oven but took few hours to cook. Today tried cooking it with pressure cooker. Only 30 minutes and the meat was flaky and so tender, it fell off the ? bones.

Recipe is taken from:


  1. For the Spice Rub: (I double the spice rub for 2 ribs)
  2. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon paprika
  4. 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  5. 1 tablespoon onion powder
  6. 1 tablespoon chilli powder ?
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cummin
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  9. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  10. 2 teaspoons salt ?
  11. For the Ribs
  12. 2 rack baby back ribs
  13. Enough water for the pressure cooker
  14. 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  15. For the BBQ sauce
  16. 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (store-bought)
  17. 1/4 cup ketchup
  18. 1/4 cup honey ?
  19. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  20. 1 teaspoon hot sauce (i omit this)


  1. In a small bowl, mix the spice rub ingredients

  2. Rinse ribs and pat dry with paper towels. Remove the membrane on the back of the ribs.

  3. Season the baby back ribs generously on both sides with the spice rub.

  4. Place the trivet (or rack) in the bottom of your pressure cooker. Add enough water and the apple cider vinegar.

  5. Place the ribs inside the pressure cooker, standing up and wrapping around the pot. Close the lid and set the timer around 30 minutes

  6. Once done, allow the pressure cooker to natural release.

  7. While the ribs are cooking, prepare the BBQ sauce. Place all the ingredients (except the ribs cooking liquid) in a small saucepan and stir to combine. Simmer on low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  8. Remove the ribs from the pressure cooker and place them on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Brush them generously with the BBQ sauce (on both sides), and place them under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until slightly charred. Serve with the remaining BBQ sauce.
