Instant Pot/Quick Cooker Country Style Ribs

Recently, I went to Costco and bought a great deal of meat because my freezer was empty. One of the things that I purchased were, country style ribs. Country style ribs are cut from the shoulder of the pig. This type of meat can be tough if not cooked slowly. Think about how you cook a pork butt (also shoulder)-low and slow.

What if you don’t have time for low and slow? Luckily, that is where the quick cooker comes in. The quick cooker allows you to have an all day cooked taste in a short amount of time. There is one thing I would recommend: letting a rub soak in for 24 hours.

Rub The Ribs Good! Give it time!

I absolutely love using rubs by Meat Church. You will want to rub the ribs with mustard as a binder. My favorite one for the ribs is Gospel. Next, add the rub. Rubs are NOT seasonings. For cooks like this, its a good idea to go heavy. Cover with Saran Wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours. This gives the meat time to absorb the rub.

Cooking the Ribs

Place in the quick cooker with 1 can of chicken broth and one cup of barbecue sauce. To satisfy the little ones, I used Sweet Baby Ray’s. I used it because it has classic flavor and it is not spicy. If the children were not sharing the dinner with us, I may have added some wonderful Fresno Chili peppers into the sauce. I recently discovered them at my local Albertson’s store.

Pampered Chef Quick Cooker (Now Called Multi-Cooker)

On the Pampered Chef Quick Cooker, there is a setting for beef/pork. If you do not have that option, set it to high pressure at 35 minutes. As I mentioned, this is a tough cut if not cooked properly. So, it is imperative that you let it release naturally to allow it to tenderize.

Speaking of the quick cooker, I want to take the time and discuss this product, because I really stand behind it. Check out this video to learn more about the Pampered Chef Quick Cooker!
