  • Add the water and apple cider vinegar to your Instant Pot. 
  • Place a trivet down inside your Instant Pot (we used our 8-quart Instant Pot for this recipe).
  • Now mix together the ingredients for your dry rub: brown sugar, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, and ground black pepper.
  • Rinse the ribs and pat dry.
  • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs; you can do this by using a knife to scrape up the edge, grab it with a paper towel, and pull it back.
  • Sprinkle and rub the rib rub all over both sides of the ribs, making sure every inch is covered with flavor.
  • Slightly fold the ribs and place them in a semi-circle on top of the trivet inside the Instant Pot.
  • Place the lid on your pressure cooker, and make sure the vent is sealed.
  • Press 'Pressure Cook' and set for 25 minutes. 
  • Once the Instant Pot is done cooking, allow it to naturally release before opening it up.
  • Pre-heat the broiler on your oven to 'High'.
  • When the ribs are completely cooked, carefully remove them from the Instant Pot and place them on a cookie sheet.
  • Brush BBQ sauce all over the ribs, on both sides.
  • Place in the oven to broil for 3 to 5 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
