Join Carla in the Test Kitchen as she makes Instant Pot ribs. Pressure-cooking the ribs for a mere nine minutes makes them completely tender and succulent, but the meat won’t be quite at the stage where it slumps right off the bone. We think they’re the perfect texture for picking up and eating with your hands, with just the right amount of chew. After that, they spend ten minutes on a hot grill to get crisped up and glazed with a punchy hot-and sour-sauce. Play your cards right and you’ll be grilling on a weeknight.

I made these ribs all summer-pressure cooking them first so they’re incredibly tender and juicy, and grilling for fun and fire. Go for it!

I know and I don't care. Sometimes deliciousness is worth the cancer risk.

@Ben Gallaty i know its been a while since you asked, but since the mirin is in there for sweetness, i think a little cherry juice or even just apple juice would be good. NOT maraschino cherry juice, but the good stuff.

To all you people who grill and eat a lot of barbecue - - That 'great color' and char is CARCINOGENIC!!!!!!!!!! Good luck! 😄 😵 😷 👍

Pressure cookers are magic. Don't have the Instapot, but placing the ribs in a pressure cooker on medium-low for an hour with mirin and white wine was an important step for great ribs.

Yum yum yum. Right there, that's it. I love my instant pot. I made yogurt yesterday. Too easy.

We pressure cook, put a rub on with sugar, and then broil. If you include smoked salt in the rub, you almost don't miss the grill (I have zero stamina for grilling.)

Checking to see if they’re poisonous happens in all families by all cooks. 💯

The directions of the instant pot say a minimum of 1 1/2 cup of liquid for 6 quart and 2 cups for 8 quart are needed. What did you use for the liquid minimum?

@ShojoBakunyu 1/4 cup tops, even at half a cup it's still far shy of 1 cup.

She added at least half a cup of liquid to the pot.

Can she do a version of ribs that can start in the IP and finish in the oven? For us grill-less NYers

So about 20-25 mins in the pressure cooker and then grill them with a glace from both sides until they reached the wanted colour that's amazing.

9 minutes in the instant pot with 10 minute natural release is really short. I actually made ribs just now and followed this recipe just with baby back ribs. By the way, the brushing with oil before grilling, THEN brushing the sauce is brilliant. My ribs were cooked enough that they weren't pink but they weren't super tender either and I had a hard time pulling the meat off the bone. It was still pretty good but most IP Rib recipes online quote around 16-25 minutes on high pressure. 16 for tender with some chew, 25 for fall off the bone. And that's still with a 10 min natural pressure release after. I just thought I'd mention this for others. Next time I will pressure cook them for 16-18 minutes instead of 9 and see how they do.

Bad recipe. Not enough cooking time for the ribs, unless you like them chewy.
Jason Green

instead of "fall off the bone" this recipe is "gnaw off the bone", beware.

Just a tip to anyone who tries to make these at home. The recipe on Bon Appetit's site is wrong and twice now has resulted in my IP never coming to pressure. The 1/4 mirin is NOT ENOUGH LIQUID for a pressure cooking recipe, and just quickly turns into a syrup and prevents the IP from hitting temp and sealing. Adding ~1/2 cup of water fixes the issue. Taste-wise they're very good (once you figure out the error and how to prevent it).

How many times can you say “like”? We went from the movie “Clueless” being on the fringe in 1995 with its language of valley girl culture “like oh my god” which was the lowest level of communicative intelligence. To the present day it being everywhere you look and peddled as an evolution of language

No liquid? I thought you needed a minimum of one cup of liquid for Instant Pot to come to pressure. That’s what the manual says anyway. I do mine in one cup liquid for 30 minutes with a natural release. Comes out perfect every time. Then I slather in barbecue sauce and stick under broiler for 5 minutes. A lot less work, too. 🤔

Don't you need at least one cup of liquid in the IP? 1/4 cup mirin is not enough liquid to create the steam needed to generate pressure.

Carla, try a 15 minute slow-release and 20 minutes after glazing in a tented foil in a 400 degree oven. Who'd have thought that 60 minute perfect ribs were possible!? I've been doing this after getting my insta-pot 3 years ago and it changed my life. (The extra 20 minutes is for reducing the dry rub drippings, and transfers.)

" a mere 9 minutes" please share the amount of time it takes the pressure to build before the timer starts counting the 9 minutes.

Hello Carla!!! I love all of your shows and your collegues shoes on Bon Appetit!! I think you all are hilarious. My question is how do you feel about putting a paper towel on top of the liquid to absorb the fat or oil from the juices you want to use?

I tried this method twice.. the first time worked perfectly but the second time the meat was not cooked after 9 minutes and natural release.... I don't understand

It's called taste testing Carla... It's a very loving and selfless thing to do... All of us caring individuals that cook for family and friends taste test the food before serving, it must be done for the good of the people we love... That's my story and I am sticking to it.
