If you’re looking for an easy recipe for the most tender, delicious pork ribs you’ll ever eat, look no further. The recipe below takes meaty St. Louis-style ribs and marinates them in cola. The sweetness and depth of flavor that the ribs get from the marinade, make them perfectly addictive.
This recipe has become a big-time favorite in my family, and I make them for just about every gathering from birthdays to holidays. I love that this recipe uses only a few ingredients, and all the ingredients will keep in the pantry for rib emergencies. You can even switch out the cola for another soft drink like root beer or Dr Pepper.
Cooktop Cove
Instant Pot Coca Cola Ribs
5 minutes, plus 15 minutes for pressure release
30 minutes, plus 15 minutes to come to pressure
1 hour and 5 minutes
1 slab St. Louis-style ribs, membrane removed
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
¾ cup cola
¾ cup barbecue sauce, plus additional for finishing if desired
Place the trivet in the Instant Pot.
Season the ribs generously with salt and pepper, place them on top of the trivet in the Instant Pot, and add barbecue sauce and cola.
Close the lid, and turn the valve to the sealing position. Select high pressure, and set the timer for 30 minutes.
When the cooking time is up, let the pressure release naturally for about 15 minutes, and then quick release any remaining pressure.
Remove the ribs from the pot, leaving the cooking liquid in the pot.
Serve immediately, or brush the ribs with additional barbecue sauce and broil or grill for six to eight minutes to finish them.
