    It was DELICIOUS! Instead of BBQsauce, I used a teriyaki sauce when I finished it in the grill thanks for a great, albeit easy, meal!

    Easily the easiest and best tasting ribs I’ve made at home! This would be great for larger parties too as you can put several racks in at once. Fall off the bone good and the broiling at the end thickened the sauce and gives a tiny char. Excellent!!

    Delicious! I have tried a lot of recipes on this website and not very many of them were worth making again. These definitely were.

    Im confused, here it says 3 racks w/ serving size of 4. If you go in the recipe it calls for 1-2 racks w/ serving size 6. Also says 30 min depending on how many racks. What kind of directions is that? This is a confusing recipe

    It was great! I cooked it for 40 minutes because my rack was thick. Next time 30-35. Finished it under the broiler. So easy!

    This was fantastic! Covered the ribs with the McCormick grill mates Montreal rub instead of the salt/pepper/garlic like the recipe called for. I broiled them in the oven with BBQ sauce once they came out of the instant pot, and they turned out phenomenal! Will definitely be making again

    Turned out great! I only made one rack so I should’ve kept the time to 25min instead of 30, I think, some bits were a pinch dry. Definitely making this again, I was so pleased. And this was my first time using my instant pot :)

    Wonderful. Meat fell off bone. made a gravy out of juice in pot. It made for a superb topping.

    Pretty good for quick ribs. I actually brushed the ribs with some bbq sauce before putting them in the instant pot to help with flavor.

    extremely easy to prep and make. never used a pressure cooker before and had to buy one for $79 but WELL worth it for these alone
