Glazed Beef Ribs - Instant Pot

First, we build flavor deep into the connective tissues of the ribs with a wet marinade. Then this beef rib marinade performs double duty, becoming the braising liquid.

You don't have to use an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, but this magical kitchen appliance is like a superhero that can transform even the most challenging cuts of meat into tender, juicy morsels in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional cooking methods.

The beef ribs are cooked under high pressure, which helps to break down the connective tissue and tenderize the meat.

Once the beef ribs are beautifully tender, they're transferred to the oven to get that beautiful caramelization and a touch of smokiness. This step is crucial, as it allows the tangy, sweet BBQ sauce to form a delectable, sticky glaze that will have you licking your fingers with delight.

Prepare the beef rib marinade

Remove any membrane from the back of the beef ribs. Depending on the size of your rib rack, divide them into sections to fit your marinating and braising container.

Marinate the ribs, rotating with tongs every 2 or 3 hours, or give them an occasional massage, if using a bag, in the refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours.

Once the ribs have finished marinating, transfer the ribs and all of the marinating liquid into an Instant Pot, pressure cooker, or braising baking dish .

Instant Pot

Choose the ribs setting on your Instant Pot or high-pressure mode set for 25 minutes and press start. Allow to naturally vent for about 20 minutes before releasing any pressure (if any).

Oven braising

Tightly cover the ribs with 2 or 3 layers of aluminum foil. Bake at 300F until a skewer inserted into the meaty area between the bones meets little resistance, 2½ to 2¾ hours.

Oven broiling

Preheat your oven broiler at a high setting.

Carefully transfer the ribs from the braising liquid, draining and blotting to dry if needed to a broiler save pan or baking sheet.

Brush the ribs thoroughly with a barbecue sauce of your choice.

Broil the ribs until the barbecue sauce glaze begins to char, about 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush on the more barbecue sauce, then broil until lightly charred, another 3 to 5 minutes.

Repeat as desired to build up a bark that is to your satisfaction.

Remove from the oven and let rest for about 10 minutes or so if you can wait that long.
