Step by Step Instructions
In a small bowl, combine together the granulated garlic powder, onion powder, cumin and coriander to create a seasoning mixture.
Cut the racks in half or into chunks of 2 or 3 ribs so that they can easily fit in the instant pot. Place them in a large bowl and season evenly with the seasoning blend.
Add 1cup of water in the instant pot. Add and arrange the ribs side by side. Add the diced onion and pour the BBQ sauce over the ribs.
Cover the pot, set your instant pot to the “Soup/Stew” function and cook for about 30 minutes.
When the time is over, allow the pressure to release naturally.
Optional: Preheat your broiler. Remove the ribs from the pot to a single layer on a tinfoil lined baking sheet. Broil the ribs until they are browned well on each side for about 5 minutes per side.
Brush the ribs with the remaining BBQ sauce in the pot.
Serve immediately and enjoy it!
