1 rack of Baby Back Pork Ribs
2 tbsp Somethin’ For Winter - Cocoa Espresso Chile Blend
⅓ cup black coffee
½ cup Somethin’ Somethin’ Sauce - Sweet & Tangy Barbecue
Remove the membrane from the back of ribs and pat dry
Apply a slight coating of coffee to moisten the ribs - this will allow the rub to stick
Coat the ribs on both sides with Somethin’ For Winter until completely coated
Place into the refrigerator on a racked baking sheet and let dry brine for up to 24 hours.
Add ⅓ of black coffee and ½ cup of Somethin’ Somethin’ Sauce to the bottom of your instant pot and mix thoroughly.
Nestle the dry rubbed ribs inside the Instapot, curling them like a crown with top of the ribs curling in and the bone points up.
Cook on high pressure for 22 minutes and use the natural release, letting the pot cool for 10 minutes before opening.
Preheat the oven to broil, placing a rack in the middle position.
Remove the ribs and place them on a foil lined baking sheet and set the Instapot to saute.
Whisking continuously, reduce the braising liquid until thickened.
Using the thickened liquid from the Instapot, baste the ribs and place them under the broiler.
Continue basting the ribs with the drippings every minute until the top of the ribs start to caramelize, approximately 3-5 minutes.
Let rest for 5 minutes, carve em up and enjoy!
