When we're missing the grill in wintertime, these tangy Ninja Foodi ribs give us that same smoky barbecue taste we love. They're so simple, and fall-off-the-bone delicious, too! —Sue Evans, Marquette, Michigan


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2-1/2 pounds pork baby back ribs, cut into serving-size portions
  • 1 tablespoon mesquite seasoning
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, divided


  1. Combine water, vinegar and soy sauce in inner pot of a large multi-cooker. Rub ribs with seasoning; add to inner pot. Lock pressure lid. Press pressure function; select ribs setting. Set to medium cook time (30 minutes). Start.
  2. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. Remove ribs to a tray; brush with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce. Discard cooking liquid. Wipe inner pot clean.
  3. Place wire rack into inner pot. Arrange ribs in a single layer on rack. Cover with air frying lid. Press air fry function; select custom setting. Press timer; set to 10 minutes. Start. Cook in batches until lightly glazed. Brush with remaining 1/4 cup sauce.
