It’s unbelievable, but true, that Instant Pot BBQ Ribs were done in 20 minutes and were fall off the bone delicious. 



  • 1 package of ribs (mine were already cut by the butcher)

  1. Salt and pepper ribs.
  2. Place one cup of water in the instant pot.
  3. Lay ribs in instant pot – I lay them in a hashtag fashion on top of each other.
  4. Use the manual setting and cook on high for 20 minutes.
  5. After 20 minutes, do a quick release of the steam valve.
