  • 3 lbs short ribs
  • ½ cup bbq rubs I used my homemade one but you can use your favorite bbq rubs.
  • 2 tsp salt or to taste
  • ½ cup pineapple juice optional
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup bbq sauce And more for brushing later


  • Pat the ribs dried. Take off the silver skin or the membrane at the back of the rib with a small knife if you need to. However, you mostly not having to do that if you get the ribs from the stores.
  • Season the ribs with salt followed by the BBQ rub.
  • In the pressure cooker, fill the pot with apple juice, pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar, and bbq sauce. Roll your ribs having the bones face inside and the meaty side face the pot.
  • Pressure cook the ribs for 25- 30 minutes.
  • Set the oven on broil. Brush the cooked ribs with the bbq sauce. (The meat side) Broil the ribs for 15 minutes.
  •  Let it cool down for about 5-10 minutes then slice or pull them apart with your hands and enjoy!
