Number of Servings: 4


    One rack of baby back ribs, three to four pounds
    1/2 cup beef broth (or other liquid)
    1/2 tablespoon liquid smoke
    BBQ dry rub to cover
    1/2 cup Low Carb BBQ Sauce


1. Chop the rack of ribs into four pieces and rub them with your seasoning. Pat it down into into every little nook and cranny.

2. Place the ribs in the pressure cooker, arranged in a fan or teepee shape so that they'll fit and steam equally.

3. Add 1/2 cup of water or stock and 1/2 tablepoon liquid smoke to give the meat a proper barbecued flavor.

4. Lock the lid down and set the cooking time to 30 minutes. (If you're using a stovetop pressure cooker, follow the manufacturer's directions).

5. While the ribs are cooking, make the barbecue sauce or if you're using bottled sauce, kick back and have a beer.

6. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

7. When the 30 minutes are up, release the pressure on your cooker, unlock the lid and use the tongs to arrange the ribs on the foil-lined baking sheet.

8. Brush the ribs with the sauce and bake for 8-10 minutes on each side, turning once, until the sauce is burnt and sticky.

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings of ribs.

    Very Good
    Recently got an INSTAPOT; was looking for a recipe to use - I didn't rate at 100% as I used recipe as a basic guide for timing in pot & oven, and liquid used - as we are not fans for sauces. Also did slow release for 20 min.Used FROZEN ribs when I put in the pot - I was very pleased with results! - 1/22/17
