Since I finally got my new Instant Pot out of the box and started using it a few weeks ago, I’ve become a little obsessed! People have been going on and on about how great the Instant Pot is, and now I finally understand what all the fuss is about!
After polling some people on the IBIH Facebook Page, I learned that a lot of you have (or are planning to get) one, and are interested in low carb recipes that can be made in the Instant Pot. For that reason, I’ve made it my mission to translate some of my low carb favorites into Instant Pot friendly recipes.
Since I’m a huge fan of pork ribs, one of the first things I wanted to tackle was how to make ribs in the Instant Pot.
One of the best things about the Instant Pot in my opinion is how fast it transforms fatty cuts of beef and pork into tender, meltingly delicious perfection! I’ve never made ribs in less than an hour before – and these pork ribs cooked in the Instant Pot were just as good if not better than any I’ve made in the past on the grill, smoker, or in the oven.
I opted to eat these right out of the Instant Pot and they were great, but to make the flavor even more authentic, or to get some char on the outside for texture, you can finish them on the grill or under the broiler of your oven for a few minutes.
The recipe itself will outline all the steps for how to make ribs in the Instant Pot in detail, but I’ll show you how easy it is in just a few photos:
1. Season your ribs with the spice mixture.
2. Layer the seasoned ribs in the Instant Pot.
3. Pour the sauce over the ribs.
4. Cover and set your instant pot for 35 minutes.
5. After cooking, release pressure and remove the top.
6. Remove the cooked ribs carefully to a platter. Cook the sauce down in the Instant Pot for 10 minutes and whisk in the xanthan gum.
7. Pour the sauce over the ribs and serve.
Making low carb ribs in the Instant Pot couldn’t be easier or more delicious – that fact that you can go from start to finish in less than an hour total is just a bonus!
You can also make these low carb ribs in a slow cooker – just put everything inside and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Then remove the ribs and cook the sauce down and thicken on the stove before pouring over the finished ribs.
I’m excited for you!
