Instant Pot

I got an Instant pot a few weeks ago and I LOVE LOVE it!!! It's so fast and the foods that I have made are so are 2 that I have made already


2 tbsp Kosher Salt
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
1 rack Baby Back Ribs
12 oz can Coke
1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke
1 cup BBQ Sauce


Combine first 7 ingredients and mix together to make a rub. Set aside.
Remove membrane from back side of ribs by loosening at one end with a knife and grabbing with paper towel and pulling off.
Apply rub to both sides of ribs and place in a ring inside of Instant Pot.
Pour Coke and Liquid Smoke into center of pot.
Pressure cook on manual high for 30 minutes with no warming and allow pressure to release naturally.
Preheat oven to 400.
Transfer ribs to broiler pan and brush with your favorite BBQ sauce.
Bake 10-15 minutes watching to ensure ribs don’t burn.
