Don’t these just look amazing!
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 and 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:
I cut my rack of ribs into smaller pieces to fit into my 6 qt. Instant Pot easier and to soak up as much juices as possible (if you have a larger one you may not need to cut them).
I cut it 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 be set into so they essentially boil in the juices and soak it up as much as possible.
I’m telling you….these are amazing…..
- 1 rack pork baby back ribs 1.8 lbs. is what I used
- 1/2 tbsp ginger chopped
- 1 c beef broth
- 1/2 c soy sauce
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp Sriracha or more if you want it spicier, this makes it mild/med.
- 1/3 c hoisin sauce
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.
Do a slow release.
If you want a bit of crispy texture on outside set oven or toaster oven to 375 and put in 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!
