I love me some ribs. And these Instant Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs are so easy to make and tastes better than most restaurants. The meat practically falls off the bone. This is especially true if you use an Instant Pot. They come out perfect every time!
I always thought it would be challenging to make good BBQ Ribs at home without having all the special appliances that most restaurants have like smokers, etc.
Well, this recipe is as good, if not better than any BBQ ribs out there. Of course, I am a little bit bias but I challenge you to make this recipe yourself and see what you think. And if you have an Instant Pot, you are almost guaranteed they will come out perfectly.
