Ribs are one of my husband’s favorite dinners but we don’t eat them as much as we should because they always seem to take forever to make. We love them on the grill and basted with a delicious blend of seasonings and bbq sauce. Prepare to be messy when you eat ribs! 

Do you own an Instant Pot? If so, did you know that you can make ribs in the instant pot with minimal effort and a few ingredients? No? Me either!! But, let me tell you – it is super easy and these ribs are delicious. 

With the cooler months here or the rush to get dinner on the table, these ribs made in the Instant Pot will be a new family favorite. Plus, you can make them quick, if you’re entertaining people too! There are so many things you can make in the Instant Pot! 

Easy dinners are a must in our family as we are extremely busy. We both work outside the home, and have our hobbies and then our son has a ton of therapy and definitely keeps us busy!! The instant pot has been a lifesaver and these ribs are SO delicious and perfect for a quick weeknight meal!

I've seen advertisements fo instant pots but never knew how they worked. Seems like a handy device. And that recipe looks delicious.

(nstant Pot Sesame Ribs) Now this sounds like a rib recipe that would be great for me to make. I am not a huge fan of BBQ sauce on anything, and it gives me heart burn too.

I am salivating! My kids absolutely love sesame chicken, so I may have to try this twist on it to see if they enjoy it. I don't have an instant pot, but maybe for christmas...
