Root Beer Ribs in the Instant Pot!


  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • 2 cups root beer
  • 1 cup cola (you can use all cola, or dr pepper, even cream soda)

BBQ Sauce:

  • 1½ cups ketchup
  • 2 tbs spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tbs dark or light brown sugar
  • 1 tbs cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup root beer
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of red pepper flakes


  1. Remove membrane on bone side of ribs.
  2. Place ribs in Instant Pot (or any electric pressure cooker). Add the cola and root beer. (If you don’t like root beer you can use cream soda in its place!)  Seal and cook on regular pressure for 15 minutes (on Instant Pot this is manual at normal pressure. On any other pot it’s 10 psi).
  3. Let pressure drop normally for 5 minutes, then release the pressure by opening the valve.
  4. While ribs are cooking, place all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and boil for about 5 minutes or until it’s reduced by about 25%
  5. Put the cooked ribs (you can cut them in portions if you like) on a large baking sheet. Smother them with the sauce then pop them under a preheated broiler (about 3-4-inches from heat) for 5 minutes or until the sauce caramelizes.
  6. Serve immediately.


To Use Prepared BBQ Sauce–Mix ¼ cup of root beer with 1½ cups prepared BBQ sauce in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until it’s reduced by 25%

Slow Cooker Method–place ribs in the slow cooker pour the amounts of root beer & cola called for in the main recipe. Cook on low about 5-6 hours, high 3-5 hours (times approximate) Continue as with main recipe.

Instant Pot Beef Stew


  • 2 lbs beef, chuck roast, fat trimmed, cut into 1-2-inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thinly
  • About 4 Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and sliced into cubes
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced diagonally in thick pieces
  • 6 whole carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally in thick pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato juice
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca (the little round balls – they dissolve and thicken the gravy)
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Place everything in the Instant Pot and select the stew/meat setting (about 35 minutes). After it’s done, let it naturally release for 10 minutes before releasing the steam the rest of the way.
  2. Finish by giving it about 10 minutes in a hot oven (about 350-400 degrees), uncovered, before serving. It gets the meat nice and caramelized on top and helps the gravy thicken up.
