Made these as written and they were so delicious. We will definitely be making again. This was the first recipe we made in our new instant- pot and it was easy and turned out perfect!

The only modification I made was using steak seasoning instead of mesquite. After 12 minutes of allowing the pressure to reduce naturally, I released the rest manually. The meat was so tender! I used my favorite mustard-based sauce and broiled for just a few minutes. Delicious! This recipe is going on my repeat list.

Super quick and easy to modify with items on hand. Didn't have Apple Cider Vinegar so used Distilled Vinegar, didn't have Mesquite rub so used Montreal rub. Meat fell off the bones. My children loved them and talked/bragged about them to friends asking how to use a pressure cooker. Have since purchased recipe items and will try again with right ingredients.
