SWEET AND SPICY BABY BACK RIBS (Cooked in Pressure Cooker)


Since my son, Cory gave me an Instant Pot for Mother’s Day a few years ago, we have been singing its praises. It cooks a complete dinner in such a short time and takes the ordinary out of our food.

     Bob cooked these amazing ribs and we were both in love!



2 racks pork ribs (baby back)

Your favorite Pork Rub seasoning, not a real heavy coating (Hickory rub works)

1 c. water

2/3 c. Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce (or your favorite brand)

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

4 Tbsp. sugar

2 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 tsp. grated ginger (or 1.5 tsp powdered)

1 tsp Sriracha hot chili sauce (or to taste, more if you like it pretty spicy!)



First, be sure to remove the membrane from ribs. (Cut both racks into 3 equal portions so they fit stacked in INSTANT POT) Rub ribs with seasoning. Pour in 1 cup water and place Ribs on little rack that comes with your INSTANT POT.  Use Manual setting and cook for 75 minutes on HIGH pressure. (if using a large crock pot, cook on low heat for 3-5 hours until ribs are cooked through and they are already starting to fall off the bone, a good way to tell if they are done is to stick a knife in the ribs and if the knife comes up without pulling at the meat, they are done.) Doneness method works for INSTANT POT also.

In a small bowl, combine chili sauce, sugar, vinegar, ginger, and Sriracha. Place ribs on a baking sheet, brush sauce on Ribs, and put on the top rack of the oven. Bake for about 10 – 12 minutes on 450 degrees (or broil for about 3-5 minutes)  until the sauce begins to caramelize… watch them VERY closely so they don’t burn!!!

The sauce was out of this world.  Make some extra to serve at the table for a dipping sauce.

We served homemade coleslaw with ours!!! Delicious!!
