Instant Pot Country Style Ribs- you won’t believe how tender and flavorful country-style ribs cooked in a pressure cooker are. Wonderfully juicy and slathered in bbq sauce. These ribs have lots of smokiness.
Country-style ribs are one of my favorite cuts of meat.
What are Country-Style Ribs?
They technically aren’t ribs at all. They are cut from the end of the loin near the pork shoulder and contain small pieces of shoulder blade. Compared to ribs, they are almost all meat. I find they have just the right amount of fat and cook up wonderfully ten
Country-Style Ribs are deicious baked in the oven, but so much better made in the pressure cooker. So tender, juicy and moist. Cooking them in the pressure cooker greatly reduces the cooking time.
Tips for making:
- This 6-quart Instant Pot is perfect for cooking countrys style ribs.
- Use your favorite bbq sauce for this recipe. I like one thats thick, smoky, and both sweet and spicy.
- I like to give the ribs a quick broil at the end after slathering them with bbq sauce.
