I wanted to create a recipe that would bring the taste of BBQ while remaining in the kitchen. This recipe is for those using an Insta pot or other type of pressure cooker. It can be adapted for a slow cooker or adapted for the grill should you be in a part of the world enjoying the sunshine.


• 4 to 5 pounds baby back ribs
• 1 teaspoon Spiceology Raspberry Chipotle seasoning plus more to taste
• 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
• 1/4 cup honey, plus more as needed
• 2 tablespoons soy sauce
• 1/2 cup raspberry preserves
• Zest of one lime
• 1 tablespoon lime juice
• 2 tablespoons of canola oil
• 4 small shallots small diced
• 2 cloves garlic grated or minced


1. Coat the ribs with Spiceology Raspberry Chipotle rub. Cut the ribs into chunks of two or three ribs, depending on their size, and place them in a large bowl. and set aside while you prepare the sauce.

2. In a small bowl combine raspberry preserves, orange juice, honey, soy sauce, lime zest and lime juice and set aside.

3. Using the sauté function, heat the oil in a pressure cooker stir in the shallots and cook until they are soft, about five minutes.

4. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, another minute, then stir in the sauce mixture bring to a simmer then scrape the sauce into the large bowl of ribs toss gently to combine.

5. Arrange the ribs standing up along the outer edge of the pressure cooker, making a ring with the meat side of the ribs facing out. Continue with the remaining ribs arranging them in concentric circles pour any remaining sauce over the ribs, cover and cook on high pressure for 32 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally.

6. Heat the broiler.

7. Transfer the ribs, meat side down, to a rimmed baking sheet. Turn the pressure cooker to the sauté function and cook to reduce the sauce until it is thick, about 15 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning. Brush the ribs with the sauce.

8. Broil the ribs until they are scorched in spots, 1-3 minutes. Then flip them over, brush with more sauce, and broil on that side until chard. Serve immediately with more sauce on the side.

9. This recipe can be made in a slow cooker by preparing the sauce in a sauté pan then once added to the ribs cook 4-5 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low. Or, adapt this recipe to cook low and slow in the oven then finish on the grill instead of the broiler.
