Instant Pot Dr Pepper RibsInstant Pot Dr Pepper Ribs, Holy Cow how good! 

Fall off the bone tender.  Serve with Garlic bread and mashed potatoes.

You will need a slab and a half of Baby Back Ribs,  Seasoning rub, 2.5 cups of Dr Pepper, one large yellow onion, two teaspoon minced garlic.

For the Garlic Bread Walmart sells a giant french loaf for a buck or you can use any french or sourdough bread. Garlic powder, butter and cheese.

Cook a slab and a half as follows:

  1. Rub the ribs with with your favorite rub.  I use McCormick’s Grill Mates Smokey Montreal Steak, but I might change that up next time.
  2. Let the ribs sit in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for 30 mins or so. 
  3. While the ribs sit in the refrigerator quarter a large yellow onion.
  4. Cut the ribs in three – four bone sections.
  5. Lay them in the pot mixing in the onion andgarlic in the layers.Dr Pepper Ribs
  6. Pour in 2.5 cups of Dr Pepper.
  7. Set your Instant Pot to the Meat/Stew program 25 mins, high pressure – Keep Warm = On.
  8. While the ribs are cooking, prepare the garlic bread.  Cut the loaf  in half like a sandwich bun/roll, spread butter and give it a shot of garlic powder. Then put on some corse shredded parmesan cheese.
  9. After the cooking cycle is complete allow a 10 min Natural Pressure Release, followed by Quick Release.
  10. Transfer the ribs to a half sheet pan, distributed the onions equally on the ribs and then brush the ribs with BBQ sauce.
  11. Put the ribs under the broiler for approximately 5 mins, don’t let the BBQ sauce burn.
  12. Heat the garlic bread on the bottom rack.  
  13. After the ribs come out of the broiler move the garlic bread up under the broiler for maybe 2 minutes to toast the top.

The meal including potatoes, bread, seasonings, onion, garlic, meat and Dr Pepper was under $20.00
