Here is how easy it is to make Buffalo Ribs In Instant Pot:
- 1 rack ribs (approximately 2 lbs) (Baby Back ribs will be the most tender)
- 1 cup buffalo sauce, plus more for serving
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 cup of water
Instructions to make Instant Pot Ribs:
Season ribs with salt and pepper and then rub in the buffalo sauce.
If you have a trivet use it with your ribs so they’re not sitting in the liquid, Place the ribs in the Instant Pot.
Add the liquid to the bottom of the slow cooker and the ribs, seal, and cook.
Set timer for 25 minutes on manual. Once the ribs are nice and tender, you’re going to allow them to naturally release for about 5 minutes and then you can flip the release to let out the rest of the pressure.
Serve brushed with additional buffalo sauce. Or you could also add the buffalo sauce and broil them to crisp up a bit.
About natural release on instant pot:
When making an Instant Pot recipe, you’ll need to either quick release or natural release the pressure before opening it. This can be a scary step but it’s necessary that you let out the pressure before you open it.
Natural release on the Instant Pot means you allow the pressure to gradually release without opening the valve on the top of the lid. Once your Instant Pot finishes the cooking, it will beep and then the timer will start counting up. (While it was cooking it was counting down.)
This recipe has a natural release time of 5 minutes so once the timer shows 5 minutes, you can then open the release valve to release the rest of the pressure.
You can cook frozen food in the instant pot!
This is one of the amazing things about the Instant Pot – so many times I have forgotten to take something out for dinner. I have no excuse to not make the frozen meat for dinner.
If you forgot to defrost your ribs you can make these Instant Pot ribs right from the freezer. You’ll want to make sure you cut them into the right size before you freezing them.
Just add them into the Instant Pot frozen and follow the recipe as directed adding about 5 more minutes to the cooking time.
That’s it! Simple, delicious, and a real crowd-pleaser. What more could you ask for? What would you serve as a side dish for these Instant Pot Buffalo Ribs?
