✓ 4 large meaty short ribs ✓ 1 cup broth (in a pinch water works fine) ✓ 1 cup clean bbq sauce of choice (use additive and sugar free "paleo" BBQ sauce for Whole30) ✓ 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (plus more for initial salting) ✓ 1/4 teaspoon black pepper ✓ 1/4 teaspoon onion powder ✓ 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder ✓ 1/4 teaspoon turmeric ✓ 1/4 teaspoon chili powder ✓ 1/4 teaspoon allspice ✓ 1/4 teaspoon paprika


✓ Turn Instant Pot onto "Saute" function ✓ Liberally salt all sides of the ribs ✓ In a small bowl, mix together all spices to use as the spice rub ✓ Rub the meat with the spices on all sides ✓ When the IP says "Hot" put the ribs in to sear on all sides, starting with the fattiest side ✓ When seared, turn off the IP ✓ Pour in broth ✓ Drizzle BBQ sauce over all the ribs ✓ Turn IP onto "meat/stew" function and adjust to 35 minutes ✓ Allow to naturally release (about 15 minutes usually) ✓ In the meantime, begin to cook you side dishes, we like a simple steamed veggie and rice or potatoes! ✓ When pressure has released, turn IP back to "saute" and allow the liquid to reduce into a gravy/sauce, stirring occasionaly and scraping the bottom. ✓ Bear in mind, it will be pretty oily... we remove quite a bit of the fat with a spoon and save to cook with later. ✓ If you prefer you can use the fat from the gravy to brown the ribs in a frying pan or remove the gravy and use the IP to saute again. ✓ Alternatively you can broil them in the oven for a few minutes! ✓ Serve with your favorite side dishes and drizzle the gravy over it all for some extra yum!
