Country Ribs

Ribs are a man’s best friends…but are they the cooks? Typically you have to boil ribs, slowly bake them for hours. Then smother them with BBQ sauce and grill them till they’re all nice and sticky. SO MUCH WORK. So how about we cut your rib time down by hours! This pressure cooker country ribs recipe is fall off the bone tender, smokey with a tangy sticky glaze you cannot get enough of.

WHAT ARE COUNTRY RIBS

These ribs are not the typical “rack of ribs” you might be thinking of. Country ribs are a different cut of ribs, they come from the shoulder of the ribs. You can purchase both  bone-in and boneless country ribs. I highly recommend buying bone-incountry ribs. They always seem to cook way more tender and flavorful. I love these ribs because they have more meat than a short rib and still coming out super tender and juicy.

WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE PRESSURE COOKER COUNTRY RIBS?

For this recipes you will need

  • pressure cooker, 6-8qts
  • country ribs
  • garlic salt
  • smoked paprika
  • your fav barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup water

HOW DO I MAKE INSTANT POT COUNTRY RIBS

  1. sprinkle garlic salt and paprika on both sides of your
  2. Sear both sides of your ribs.

WHY DO I SEAR THE RIBS

Searing is a technique to help seal in the juices of a meat. As a busy mom I honestly don’t have time to do this step most days. So if you find yourself in that category don’t sweat it. skip to the step of placing your ribs in the pressure cooker. But if you do have and extra 10 minutes then do it :)

PLACE YOUR RIBS IN THE PRESSURE COOKER

  • If you are cooking a fair a mount (more than 4+) you will want to layer your ribs. Place a few down, dont over crowd them.
  • Drizzle some your barbecue sauce over
  • Layer another 4-6 ribs and repeat with the barbecue sauce

  • add one cup of water to your instant pot
  • cook your ribs on high pressure for 15-20 minutes, natural release.
  • remove from liquid and place on a foil lined  baking sheet.
  • Coat once more with barbecue sauce. Brush it on so it is nice and coated.
  • Broil for a few minutes to caramelize the bbq sauce making it nice and sticky.

DON’T SKIP THE LAST STEP!

While you can skip the searing you canNOT skip this step of broiling the ribs. It really is the frosting on the cake. It creates a sticky smokey outer layer that you would normally get  after grilling or hours of roasting the ribs. Instead we have cut all that down under an hour.

CAN I MAKE THESE AHEAD?

You can marinate them in the garlic salt, paprika and barbecue sauce. Keep refrigerated and cook right before you need to serve.

HOW DO I SAVE LEFTOVERS?

Keep leftovers in an air tight container in your fridge for a week.

    Wow!! This was so so good!! I will be making this way from now on! amazing! I have to make my own bbq sauce, but I’m sure that the one you recommend is amazing too! Thank you so much!! oh! I did not bake ours after pressure cooking. We were starving! So I used a broiler pan and broiled on low while I fixed our veggies. So so tender! Thanks again! :D

    Without being able to make these on my grill, I think these were a very good substitute. I added onions to the cook and, when I make these again I want to make them spicy!. Overall, I was happy with the results.

    We loved this recipe! Basted with Sassy2Carb sauce by Ken Davis to keep it low-carb. Also tossed some carrots in the pressure cooker with the country ribs, pouring in half a cup of chicken broth and half a cup of water. Will be making this again! Thanks!

    Very good ribs! I made the mistake of not slathering enough sauce on them when the went into the oven. Still were tender and delicious! I’ll make them again and slather the heck out of ‘em! Thank you!
