Step Four: Naturally Release Pressure

Let the Instant Pot build, and release the pressure naturally. This will infuse all the flavors, and make the ribs really tender.

Step Five: Remove Ribs And Broil

Double line a baking dish with heavy foil, and carefully remove the ribs from the Instant Pot, into the dish. Brush the barbecue sauce on the slabs of ribs, completely coating them in the sauce.

Step Six: Prepare Potatoes

While the ribs are cooking in the Instant Pot, peel 3 – 4 pounds of white potatoes, and cut them in chunks.

Place the potatoes in a large roaster, and cover them with cold water, and about 2 Tablespoons of salt. Turn the burner on high, and boil the potatoes until done for about 15 – 20 minutes. When the potatoes are done, pour off all but about 1/4 of the water, and leave the potatoes in the roaster.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the membrane on the underside of the ribs has been removed. If it hasn’t, grab hold of one corner, and pull it the entire length of the ribs.
  • To cook your cubed potatoes super fast steam in the Instant Pot for 4 minutes with one cup of water.

Variations

  • Thai Peanut Butter Ribs: for a nutty, sweet, and spicy twist.
  • Peach-Glazed Ribs: With a sweet and tangy summer vibe.
  • Chili-Glazed Spareribs: For a spicy kick.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Store: After cooking, allow the ribs to cool down to room temperature. Transfer them to an airtight container or wrap them tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap, then refrigerate. They should keep well for 3-4 days.
  • To Freeze: If you’d like to freeze the ribs, ensure they have cooled completely before wrapping them in foil or plastic wrap, then placing them into a freezer-safe bag. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Reheat: Thaw the ribs in the refrigerator if they were frozen. To reheat, place them in a baking dish, optionally adding a small amount of water or barbecue sauce to keep them moist. Cover with foil and reheat in an oven preheated to 275°F (135°C) for about 20-30 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, for a quicker option, you can reheat them in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate, covered with a damp paper towel, for 2-3 minutes on high, checking periodically to ensure even heating.
