This Instant Pot St Louis Ribs Recipe was for sure a winner. Dinner was done in a little over super quick for 2 full racks of ribs. My spare ribs went into the pot.
I added in a apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke and a few other ingredients. Then, let them naturally release and when I removed the ribs they were fall off the bone good!
Pressure cooking makes life so much easier! I have also used this same recipe with baby back ribs. Its a versitile recipe and doesn't only have to be used with St. Louis Style Ribs.
How Many Ribs Fit In The Instant Pot?
I have fit 2 slabs of ribs and honestly think I could have fit a 3rd smaller slab. The pot is pretty roomy so the key to adding more than 1 slab of Instant Pot Spare Ribs is to roll them so that they fit.
Spare Ribs In The Instant Pot
When you hear the pot beep, remove them immediately. Now you can add them to a baking sheet. First, put on a little brown sugar bbq sauce. I let them cook for about 15 minutes, or less under the broiler to allow the sauce to soak in some.
You can also adjust the time down to about 25 minutes because you are going to broil at the end.
This was my first time using my Instant Pot to make ribs. And other than throwing them on the grill in summer instead of the oven, and cutting the time when I do that, I probably will never cook them any other way again.
They stayed moist and fell right off the bone! And 30 Minutes, you can't beat that, especially for Beer Braised Instant Pot St Louis Ribs.
What can I Pair Instant Pot St Louis Ribs with?
These St Louis style ribs in the instant pot can be paired with Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese, one of my favorites Macaroni and Cheese Recipe with Ranch or this Instant Pot Potato Salad.
Really anything goes great with these ribs. I like to also have corn on the cob with my ribs.
Thanks for the YouTube video. It really helps to see what you did the complete your recipes in the IP.
You're Very Welcome!
Were your ribs thawed or frozen?
Love the idea.
When you took out the ribs in the video, it appears they have some seasoning on them. If so, what did you use?
Just garlic salt and pepper, the post has been updated.
Did you put any water in your cooker for your ribs and if so how much??
No other liquids.
Would I want to double the liquid if I make 2 racks?
Liquid would stay the same.
No seasoning on the ribs? I don't see anything in the ingredients but did see some on the ribs. Suggestions? Also do you remove the silver skin on the ribs?
I always remove the membrane on the back no matter how I cook a rack of ribs.
When did you put the beer in?
Where it says pour in the beer.
Does they bbq sauce go in the pot or is it for basting before you broil them
For basting them
I don't have a high setting on my new Multicooker. 'Spode I should just press meat button & reduce time to an hour, release pressure & stop at about 30 mins?
Some of these questions are making my eyes roll up permanently. OMG!
Just made these and delicious. Did leave them on high for 45 minutes as I like them to be close to falling on the bones.
These are truly the best instant pot ribs on the internet! I've tried a lot of recipes, believe me. My family can't rave enough. I put 2 pork babyback racks in my PPCXL, 6 qt. for 23 minutes, no trivet.. They weighed 2.88 lbs and 2.86 lbs. It's similar to an InstantPot. Meat setting. Thanks!
Dear Jamela, These were AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I'm a new Instant Pot user and this was my first time making ribs!! I made 2 racks of St Louis style ribs and instead of adding beer, I used water and added the Apple Cider Vinegar & I only sprinkled black pepper on the ribs before adding the liquid; they were done in 35 minutes!! OMGOSH!! THIS is my new way to make ribs!! I made them the day before (for Father's Day) and put them in the fridge overnight. Next day, I coated them with my son's homemade BBQ sauce and put them in convection oven (temp set for 350-which is really 375) for about 15 minutes--YUM! THANK YOU!
I am so glad you liked it!
