Notes

  • We have made this many times in our 6 quart Instant Pot and our 6 quart Crock Pot Express. You can use any 6 quart electric pressure cooker. If you cannot use a manual setting, just choose a setting that allows you to cook under high pressure for the desired time.
  • This recipe was inspired by a sauce recipe found in Bacon & Butter Cookbook.
  • If you prefer firmer ribs, cook for 25 minutes, however if you would like super tender ribs, set it to cook for 30 minutes instead.
  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • We used Baby Back Ribs, but you can use your favorite ribs. Cooking times may vary. 
  • If you don't care about carbs, feel free to substitute the coke zero for a regular cola, root beer, Dr. Pepper or even cream soda if you are feeling adventurous!
  • Check out all our favorite recommendations for cookbooks, slow cookers and low carb essentials in our Amazon Influencer Shop.
  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
  • Finally, all electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own electric pressure cooker and time adjusted as needed.
