Remove ribs from package and gently remove membrane from back of ribs and pat dry with a paper towel.

Create the rub. Combine the paprikas, onion powder, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and sugar and mix well.

Coat the front and back of ribs with the rub. Place in ziplock bag and marinate in fridge for at least 1 hour, up to 24 hours.

Add water, apple cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce to the Instant Pot.

Place the steam rack inside on the Instant and put the ribs on top, curling them around into a circle.

Place lid on Instant Pot, press manual, and cook for 25 minutes.

Do a 10 minute natural release and then quick release.

Remove the ribs from the Instant Pot and place them on a clean foil lined baking sheet.

Brush the barbecue sauce on the ribs and place under the broiler for 5 minutes or until you get a nice char.

Remove from oven and serve immediately.

This recipe was adapted from the original by The Millennial SAHM.

The ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and go great with Trader Joe's GF Rice Noodle Mac and Cheese and fresh steamed garlic green beans.
