Ingredients
  

For the spice rub

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder

For the tangy BBQ sauce

  • 1 small can tomato paste (6 oz)
  • 1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

In the Instant pot

  • 2-4 cups water
  • 1 rack ribs

Instructions
 

  • Combine the spice ingredients and set aside.
  • Combine the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Remove the ribs from the packaging. Rinse and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Once dry, rub the spices all over the ribs.
  • Set up your Instant Pot by placing the wire rack at the bottom so that the ribs do not sit directly in the pot.
  • Cover your ribs in some BBQ sauce. Be sure to set some aside for later after cooking.
  • Place the ribs in the Instant Pot. Seal and cook on 30 minutes on high. If you don't have a high setting, use the Soup/Stew setting. Make sure to vent completely.
  • After venting and removing your ribs from the Instant Pot. Prepare your broiler and a pan. Broil the cooked ribs fat side up for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the crispiness you would like.
  • Add some additional sauce and enjoy!
