These tender Instant Pot ribs are slathered in rub plus topped with a tangy bbq sauce.
Make the rub by combining 1 tbsp unsalted dry ranch seasoning, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1/2 tbsp black ground pepper, 1 tbsp smoked paprika, 1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tbsp mayonnaise or oil and 1 tbsp grain mustard or Dijon mustard, set aside.
Remove the skin from underneath the rack of ribs and cut ribs between each bone.
Use a bowl or a ziplock bag to coat rib pieces in the rub. Massage the spices into the meat well. Set aside.
Make the steaming liquid by combining 1/2 cup of red wine and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar.
Place the steam rack insert inside your Instant Pot, and pour in the prepared liquid, then place the ribs on top of the rack.
Set the pressure cooker to high pressure at 45 minutes. Once the time expires, preheat your oven to 350 degrees with the baking rack in the middle. Alternatively, you can also use a grill heated to 425 degrees.
Turn the steam valve on the Instant Pot to vent, and release the pressure.
Remove the ribs to a lined with parchment paper or foil baking sheet and brush the ribs with homemade bbq, or your favorite store brand of bbq sauce.
Bake the ribs in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the sauce is well caramelized. Brush with BBQ sauce once more right before serving
