Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs: Paleo and AIP

Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs: Paleo and AIP

Need an Instant Pot?

Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs might be the simplest, yet most pleasing Paleo, AIP recipe I have made to date.

I am a Texan, so I consider myself a BBQ connoisseur (or a snob, depending on your take. HA!). I grew up eating some of the best BBQ in the country and developed a deep love for all things grilled and smokey. MMM . . . grilled and smokey. I might be drooling.

 

Anyway, you may wonder how it’s  possible for a BBQ snob to possibly endorse an Instant Pot rib recipe. I was skeptical as well, my friends, but I am here to tell you- these Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs are delish!

The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity. Did I mention you only need four ingredients and they cook in 20 minutes?  Plus . . .

You can customize these Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs by utilizing any type of sauce you prefer.

I need my ribs to be Paleo (AIP is even better) so I use Tessamae’s BBQ Sauce (also Whole30 approved when I can find it or KC Natural – Mastodon Paleo AIP BBQ Sauce.   

Both of these sauces are delicious and perfect for Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs. 

If you are not concerned about adhering to Paleo or AIP, you should try my very favorite rubs and sauces from my favorite bbq place:

The Salt Lick, in Driftwood Texas. We love it so much that we had some shipped to our wedding reception in Cooperstown, NY!

The salt Lick today is not the Salt Lick of my youth, as it has gained national recognition from the many celebrities who feature it on their shows on The Food Network, but it is still just as good as I remember it. They ship anywhere, so if you don’t feel like making your own and want to try some delicious, authentic, Texas BBQ, check them out.

You can click on the images to learn more.

I do not use a rub in this ultra simple recipe, but it sure can amp up the flavor!

**Do me a favor, please. If you utilize a rub or special sauce that you love on your Instant Pot BBQ Pork Ribs, comment below the recipe. I love hearing how people adapt recipes to fit their needs and preferences.

Six-Minute Paleo Instant Pot Balsamic Pork

Six-Minute Paleo Instant Pot Balsamic Pork

Have you avoided pork tenderloin because it usually turns out dry and rubbery? You aren’t alone. It can be tricky. But this six-minute Paleo Instant Pot balsamic pork will change your mind and convert you to a fan in no time. 

The pork tenderloin of my past was always overcooked, so I thought I didn’t like it. I only ate it when served at someone’s house and even then I took only a small portion and doused in a sauce to make it palatable, of course. I never ordered it at a restaurant, and never bought it because I imagined it must be difficult to get right.

My first positive experience with tenderloin was with a slow cooker recipe I tried a few years ago. I still wasn’t convinced I could prepare one to slice though because this recipe required shredding, which can make even dry meats work in certain instances (more sauce, please).

Unfortunately, I don’t use the slow cooker anymore now that I have an Instant Pot, but I certainly did not think pressure cooking would be a good method because it cooks so fast and tenderloin is so lean, but I kept seeing recipes on Pinterest and figured I’d have to give it a shot at some point. I was just freaked out by the drastic cooking time discrepancies: they ranged from 7 minutes to 45! Six minutes didn’t seem nearly long enough, and 45 minutes is insane- don’t do that to your tenderloin, please.

I finally found one that seemed easy enough to alter to fit my needs and used ingredients I had on hand.

This easy 6-minute Paleo instant pot balsamic pork tenderloin is one of those rare recipes that is effortless but will impress even the most particular of guests.

My recipe is inspired by another I found at baconismagic.com.  I changed ingredients and reduced the cooking time to 6 minutes based on my end results.

If you cook lots of protein like I do, you should invest in a meat thermometer if you haven’t already. It really is the most reliable way to check for appropriate doneness and make sure your meats are reaching the proper temperatures for safety as well. I use one just like the one I linked to above. It has a feature that, when using the oven or grill, you can set the desired end temperature and the timer will beep when that temperature is reached. It’s kind of amazing.

For six-minute Paleo instant pot balsamic pork, you want your tenderloin to be at 137 degrees when you remove it from the instant pot and 145 degrees after it rests for ten minutes while you reduce your sauce. Perfect.

Changes I made to convert the original recipe to a Paleo instant pot pork recipe:

One of the ingredient changes I made was to swap cornstarch with tapioca flour/starch you can also use arrowroot!. If you have not used it as a thickening agent before you should know that the consistency will look a little different, but the taste will not be impacted at all. The tapioca flour adds a more gelatinous set to the sauce.

I also swapped brown sugar for organic honey and canola oil to coconut. I use a flavorless and odorless coconut oil when I don’t want to have a coconut flavor in my food, but still want the health benefits of coconut oil.

If you are questioning whether Worcestershire sauce is Paleo or not, then we think the same way. I researched it before I added this to my weekly meal plan, and was happy with the answers I found. If you’d like to check it out for yourself, click here. 

I’d love to hear how you like this recipe! I hope you enjoy it!

You will end up with a delicious pile of porky goodness so versatile that you will use it in soups, frittatas, and more. Heck, I sneak it cold paleo instant pot kalua pigright out of the fridge!

Sometimes I toss my Instant Pot Kalua Pig on top of a pile of mashed cauliflower, but I also love it in bib lettuce, taco style. It’s delicious topped with my speedy smooth guacamole.

*If you don’t have an instant pot yet (you will if I have anything to do with it) you can easily make this in the slow cooker (she includes directions for both methods).

I made this in the crockpot initially, but when Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo posted the instant pot instructions I switched over immediately (of course). I love my instant pot. The more I use it, the more I love it, too.  you will probably get sick of hearing about it.

Click here for the recipe (I do not use the garlic she recommends).

Why am I only providing a link and not the entire recipe?

  1. Too often I see the same recipes (the exact same, mind you) with a variation on the name, or maybe a different picture- with each author publishing it as their own. Authors should receive credit for their work.
  2. I like to offer reviews of existing recipes for those like me who pin with reckless abandon, yet fear actually making what they have pinned. That fear of the unknown is debilitating.  I want to offer up recipes that I know are good, whether I create them or not.

Tha being said, I know this one is good. Very good. Do yourself a favor and buy Michelle’s book, get her app, sign up for Real Plans so you can add on her recipe package, and make this recipe as soon as possible. You will thank me, I promise.
