  • 1
    Spray 6-quart Instant Pot™ insert with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Season ribs with seasoning and salt. Add broth to insert, and stand ribs up against sides of insert.
  • 3
    Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 15 minutes. Select CANCEL. Keep pressure valve in SEALING position to release pressure naturally. Transfer ribs to cutting board; cool slightly. Discard cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, cut sections into individual ribs.

    Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix ketchup, whiskey, honey, chili powder and onion powder. Heat to simmering over medium-high heat; reduce to medium, and cook uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently until thickened. Reserve.
  • 5
    Position oven rack 4 inches from broiler element. Set oven control to broil. Line rimmed sheet pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Place ribs on foil; brush all over with sauce.
  • 6
    Broil ribs 2 to 4 minutes or until sticky, crispy and blackened in spots.

Expert Tips

  • No broiler? No problem. While broiling adds nice flavor and color, the ribs will still be delicious if you need to skip that step.
  • Don’t substitute larger ribs for the baby back ribs. This recipe was designed for the smaller racks, and larger ribs will not get tender in the same amount of time.
