  • 1 cup water or chicken stock
  • 2.25 pounds baby back pork ribs
  • 2 Tablespoons BBQ Rub
  • 1/2 cup Keto BBQ Sauce


  • Place the steam rack in the bottom of your Instant Pot® inner pan, and pour in the water/stock.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the ribs with BBQ Rub.
  • Coil ribs into a circle and place vertically on top of the trivet/riser in the pan.
  • Secure the lid making sure the knob is in the “Sealing” position, and set Instant Pot to Manual, High Pressure for 25 minutes. {your Instant Pot will take 10 to 12 minutes to pressurize before it starts cooking}
  • When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes. Unlock the lid and remove ribs from the Instant Pot .
  • Place ribs on a foil lined baking sheet and coat with Keto Barbecue Sauce.
  • Place under the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize the sauce. Cut ribs in-between the bones and serve with additional sauce.


  • Why didn’t you cook the Instant Pot Barbecue Ribs with the sauce? Because the steam would pretty much wash the sauce right off the ribs. 
  • Can I use a different brand of pressure cooker? Yes you can….I do not know exactly how each brand works so you may need to adjust cooking times if they seem off.
  • I do not have a pressure cooker, but I still want to make ribs for dinner!! Follow the instructions in this post to bake your ribs in the oven.
  • Nutrition Facts are based on regular barbecue sauce. My recipe for BBQ Sauce is 3 net carbs per serving with 2 grams of sugar.
