Making country style ribs in the Instant Pot is super easy and quick. Boneless country style ribs are also inexpensive and fast! Usually, you’d have to make these in the oven for hours.

Country Style Ribs are boneless and usually very inexpensive, so they’re a great way to feed a lot of people for cheap!

You can dump all the ingredients into the Instant Pot and walk away, and have dinner ready in less than an hour! You can use this method to make the most amazing traditional Instant Pot Ribs as well! I love both recipes, but country style ribs are boneless so it’s nice!

How to cook Instant Pot country style ribs

This easy method is the quickest and easiest way to make Instant Pot country style ribs.

Just dump the ribs into the Instant Pot, add your favorite rib rub/seasoning, some bbq sauce, and your favorite soda (I used rootbeer).

After that, lock the lid, and cook for 35-45 minutes with a natural pressure release.

When they’re done, you’ll let them naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. You can totally just take the meat out and eat it like that! But, they are best served with an extra slather of bbq sauce to make the ribs nice and sticky!

Furthermore, if you want to go the extra mile you can baste the ribs with more sauce and broil until they’re crisped a bit. However, when I’m in a hurry I like to just serve them as-is. 🙂

What to serve with country style ribs

My friend told me just this week that she’d never had country style ribs before! She didn’t know how to make them or what to serve them with, which is what inspired me to dig these pictures out of my archives and write this post for her!

Country Style Ribs with BBQ sauce go well with anything you’d normally serve at a barbeque! Beans, potatoes, bread, etc.

You could even take a chunk of meat and put it in a hotdog or hamburger bun if you really wanted to! Here’s a couple ideas for some easy sides in the Instant Pot:

The greatest thing about these Instant Pot ribs is that you just dump and go! If you don’t want to use a prepared sauce/rub, definitely use your own! The meat is fall-apart tender, and sooo deliciously easy!

4 Ingredient Instant Pot Country Style Ribs

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 52 minutes

Instant Pot Country Style Ribs with only 4 flexible ingredients can be dumped into the Instant Pot and have dinner ready with no effort!

Ingredients

  • 4 lb Boneless Country Style Ribs
  • 3 Tablespoons Rib/BBQ Rub or Seasoning
  • 1/2 Cup Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce (or your favorite)
  • 3/4 Cup Rootbeer, Cola, or Dr. Pepper (Not diet)

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot and lightly toss with tongs so the meat has seasoning all over it.
  2. Lock the Lid, turn the knob to SEALING, and cook on the MEAT/STEW setting for 35 minutes. For frozen, cook for 40 minutes with a 15 minute natural pressure release. If you do not have this setting, use the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button.
  3. After the 35 minute pressure cook, allow a 15 minute natural pressure release. If you don't have time for this, you don't have to do it, but it will help tenderize the meat.
  4. Release the rest of the pressure, if any, and remove the lid.
  5. Remove the ribs out of the Instant Pot. Baste the ribs with more sauce and enjoy! You may baste the ribs with more sauce and broil them in the oven for about 5 minutes to get a little crispier if you'd prefer.

Notes

You may use apple juice in place of the soda

Delicious recipe. Cooked from partially frozen 40 min with natural release. Used white wine for soda. So I guess it was a “modified” version.

Does it matter if it’s boneless or bone in?

Hi Ashley, if you're using boneless ribs, are you talking about country style ribs? You can check out that recipe here! 4 Ingredient Instant Pot Country Style Ribs from fresh or frozen

You can press the meat/stew setting, or the pressure cook setting if you do not have it. The vent is always on SEALING when pressure cooking!

Meats seem to be labeled differently in different places! I have some pork loin boneless for Texas style ribs. Is that the same thing or would it work in this recipe? Thanks for your help!

Hi! I don't believe that Texas style ribs are the same as country style ribs. When in doubt, please ask your butcher. Unfortunately, I haven't ever heard of those kind!

Do I need to change the time of they're frozen?

Lisa Childs

If they are individually frozen, no. If you have a large block, I'd add about 10 extra minutes and you may need to add a little extra time after that if you open the lid and need to tear some of the large pieces apart. i haven't tried a large block of frozen country style ribs for this recipe.
