Ribs Revisited - Again

Again with the new birthday toy: I wanted to see if I could replicate the ribs of yore but with the new Instant Pot - especially since it will fit two racks of ribs (really three).

Not gonna lie - I'm tweaking a couple things here to FIX. They were almost TOO tender. I know. I know - is that possible? I kind of like to grab the bone and gnaw the meat off of it. . . With these, the bones LITERALLY fell out of the meat. I had to knife and fork the meat. Soooooo, I'm tweaking a couple things I did and not telling you what I'm tweaking. It WAS faster AND easier. I DO prefer the low and slow spray method. But let's say I don't want to babysit and spray for SIX HOURS! The apple juice and apple cider vinegar steam is what infuses and tenderizes in the Instant Pot. So, it's good to know I have options. . .

Some things didn't change from the old recipe: mustard, Butt Rub, 24 hours, apple juice and apple cider vinegar.

BUTT, then I adhered to some Instant Pot directions.

2 T yellow mustard (nothing fancy)

1 1/4 cup apple juice

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Lots of Kerry Gold butter

2 racks of baby back ribs

~ Remove membrane from ribs and pat dry.

~ Rub yellow mustard all over meat then rub Butt Rub into meat.

~ Wrap ribs in cling wrap and refrigerate overnight.

~ Pour apple juice and apple cider vinegar into Instant Pot.

~ Coil the ribs into the pot. Close and set for 23 minutes.

~ Natural release for five minutes - JUST FIVE!

~ Remove ribs and put on foil lined sheet pan.

~ Lay butter over ribs and cover till ready to broil or grill.

~ Cover with sauce of choice and broil or grill till sauce begins to char. (Gosh, is this good with corn pudding!)
