Ready Time

1 hrs


6 servings


  • Pork ribs, 2 pounds
  • Barbecue sauce, 1 cup
  • Brown sugar, 1/2 cup
  • Honey, 1/4 cup
  • Apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup
  • Soy sauce, 1/4 cup
  • Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup
  • Garlic powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Onion powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Paprika, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane on the back side.

Cut the ribs into individual portions.

In a small bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, honey, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Place the ribs in the Instant Pot and pour the sauce over them.

Cook the ribs on high pressure for 30 minutes.

Once the cooking time is complete, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes.

Remove the ribs from the Instant Pot and brush them with additional barbecue sauce.

Serve the ribs immediately with your favorite sides.


  • Substitute baby back ribs for a meatier option.
  • Adjust the cooking time depending on the size of the ribs. Smaller ribs may require less cooking time, while larger ribs may require more.
  • For a thicker sauce, simmer the sauce in a saucepan until it has reduced.
  • Serve the ribs with your favorite sides, such as mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, or coleslaw.
  • Store leftover ribs in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
