  • 1 2.5 pounds Country Style Boneless Spareribs*
  • 1 tablespoon Red Hawaiian Sea Salt
  • 1 14.5 ounce can chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • Barbeque sauce


  • Rub sea salt on both sides of spareribs and set aside.
  • Add chicken broth and liquid smoke to Instant Pot. Place ribs in Instant Pot on top of metal rack that is inside the Instant Pot.
  • Set Instant Pot to Meat setting for 35 minutes.
  • Once cooking is done, and you've released the steam, carefully remove ribs from the Instant Pot and place on a broiling pan. Coat ribs with BBQ sauce and place under broiler for 2 minutes per side. Remove and serve.
