Instant Pot Boneless Pork Ribs

The Instant Pot is the perfect appliance to cook country style ribs with gravy. The meat comes out right every time and you can even whisk up a gravy with the remaining seasonings.

As usual, you’ll want to over-season the meat since some of it will end up in the water at the bottom of the instant pot. But using a bit of cornstarch, you’ll be making a tasty gravy to serve up with the ribs. 

Simply switch from pressure cooking to the sauté function to whisk up the gravy. Then stir until you reach a desired thickness. Pour gravy on top of pork ribs or serve in a gravy boat alongside.

This recipe is a great way to make Instant Pot country style ribs without bbq sauce. The gravy is homemade and goes perfectly with the ribs.
