When we're missing the taste of grilled food during winter, these tangy ribs give us that same smoky barbecue flavor we love. They're so simple, and fall-off-the-bone delicious, too! —Sue Evans, Marquette, Michigan

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs, cut into serving-sized portions
  • 2 tablespoons mesquite seasoning
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, divided


  1. Combine water, vinegar and soy sauce in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Rub ribs with mesquite seasoning; add to pressure cooker. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 35 minutes. Let pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure.
  2. Remove ribs to a foil-lined baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Brush ribs with half the barbecue sauce. Broil 4-6 in. from heat until glazed, 2-4 minutes. Brush with remaining barbecue sauce.
