Instructions
  1. Combine ingredients for the dry rub in a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.

  3. Add beef broth or water to Instant Pot and insert the metal rack.
  4. Place the seasoned ribs on their sides on top of the insert. (Do not stack them flat on top of each other).
  5. Lock the Instant Pot lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to high for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  7. Once cooking time is complete, do a quick release (QR) by flipping the sealing valve to the “Venting” position.
