Instant Pot Country Style Ribs

These Instant Pot Country Style Ribs are so tender and flavorful!  They start with a simple dry rub, then they are smothered in BBQ sauce, and cooked up in your Instant Pot pressure cooker for a delicious and easy meal!

Perfect for the bone-in country-style ribs that are on sale for just $1.77/lb. this week at Safeway.  I served with a simple baked potato and coleslaw salad, which is my favorite way to eat ribs!  I always serve with extra BBQ Sauce because no matter how much I slather on, the kids always ask for more!

Country-style ribs are cut from the blade end of the loin close to the pork shoulder. They are meatier than other rib cuts. They contain no rib bones, but instead, contain parts of the shoulder blade (scapula)

How to Make Country Style Ribs In The Instant Pot

To make these Instant Pot Country Style Ribs, I first created a dry rub out of brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin.  I rubbed the ribs on both sides with the dry rub mix before adding to the Instant Pot.

I poured 1 cup of beef broth to the pressure cooker, then added the ribs and topped with BBQ Sauce.  I cooked on high pressure for 45 minutes and then used the natural release method for the steam, which took an extra 15 to 20 minutes, but that extra time really made these ribs super fork-tender and delicious.



I like to place the ribs in the oven and top with a little extra BBQ sauce and broil for 7 minutes, it caramelizes the BBQ Sauce, which is how my family likes to eat ribs.

When you compare labels of BBQ Sauces at the store, you’ll be amazed at how many contain high fructose corn syrup as the first ingredient, and how much added sugar is in each bottle as well.  That is not the case with the O Organics BBQ Sauce.

It is made with all-natural ingredients like organic tomato puree, organic sugar, organic tomato paste, organic distilled vinegar, organic molasses, salt, natural smoke flavor, organic garlic, organic onion, and organic spices.   It also tastes great!  I used the Original BBQ Sauce, but it’s also available in Sweet & Spicy and Roasted Garlic flavors.
