I’ve made easy crockpot ribs for years and yes they are great but they take all day…..
This way everything is made so quickly and turns out amazingly well. I first started experimenting with teriyaki recipes when I made these Instant Pot spicy teriyaki chicken thighs. They were such a hit I used that homemade teriyaki sauce in other things and tweaked it for different dishes like these ribs.
Here are a few things you may not have in your cupboards that you’ll need to make this Instant Pot teriyaki ribs recipe:
This is how to remove membrane from ribs so they’re as tender as possible.
I cut my rack of ribs into smaller pieces to fit into my 6 qt. Instant Pot. I wanted to soak up as much sauce as possible (if you have a larger one you may not need to cut them).
What I did is cut the rack into pcs with 3 ribs on each piece and put them on the bottom trying not to overlap them.
Then I poured the teriyaki sauce I made over the top so they are mostly submerged. If you are doubling the amt. of ribs in this recipe I might make 1.5x the teriyaki sauce so that there is enough liquid for the meat to essentially boil in the juices.
How to crisp your ribs:
- Follow directions below
- When done put on a baking sheet
- Put under the broiler for 4-5 minutes or until crispy on top for your liking
- If you are making Ninja Foodi ribs
- place ribs with meat facing up into air fryer basket
- pour liquid from pot into a bowl
- close your air fryer lid and set to 390 degrees for about 4 minutes or until they are as crispy as you’d like them
I’m telling you. These Instant Pot ribs are amazing…..
Instant Pot Teriyaki Ribs Recipe
- Mix all sauce ingredients together well.
- If you have a 6 qt. pot cut rack of ribs into pcs. of 3 ribs each piece and place at bottom of Instant Pot or pressure cooker vertically so meat it not laying right on the bottom of the pot. If you have a larger pot you can just wrap in a circle with meat facing sides in one piece.
- Pour teriyaki sauce on top.
- Close lid, and steam valve.
- Set to pressure high for 25 minutes. (if doubling this recipe I would set to 40 minutes for really fall off the bone ribs)
- Do a natural release for at least 10 minutes.
- If you want a bit of crispy texture on outside put under your broiler for about 4-5 minutes to crisp the outside of the ribs.
- Pour some sauce from inside your Instant Pot on the ribs and serve!
