Lucille’s BBQ style meal with Trader Joe’s Ingredients

Recipe by: Sheena Chang @foodiewithflair

 

Anyone that loves BBQ knows that Lucille’s serves up the Best Bar-B-Que with the Finest Southern Hospitality. If you love the presentation of their meals try making it at home with ingredients from Trader Joe’s. Cook the ribs in the Instant Pot first, and then finish them under the broiler to get some nice color and flavor. They are fall-off-the-bone tender and so flavorful! It’s so much cheaper to DIY this meal at home than to eat out.

 

 

What you’ll need:
• Rack of baby back ribs
• Salt
• Black pepper
• Garlic powder
• Smoked paprika
• 2 cups apple juice
• BBQ sauce (your choice)
Remove ribs from package, rinse with cold water, and pat dry. Season both sides with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
Pour apple juice into Instant Pot and place trivet into the pot. Roll rack of ribs into a circular shape to fit the pot and place on top of the trivet.
Set IP to 25 minutes, high pressure. When time is up, allow natural release for 5 minutes, then manual release.
Carefully remove ribs from IP and place on a baking sheet. Glaze ribs with BBQ sauce, and place under broiler until desired color and char is achieved. I did about 6 minutes under the broiler on low.
I served my ribs with Instant Pot mac and cheese (made with Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar), corn on the cob, and watermelon.
