    Horrible. Chilli powder and maple do not go together. Followed the recipe. Ribs came out nice and tender but sauce was horrible. Will not make this again.

    These were very good! The whole family loved these. The only thing I might change is to throw them on the BBQ or in the oven to crisp them up a bit. Other than that, beauty!

    Note the typo in step 3….calling for 5 1/2 teaspoons of chilli powder. Should read 1 1/2. This was a hit and making it again!

    This was a great recipe with great flavors! However, I doubled the recipe (since we love ribs) and ended up with more liquid than an actual sauce and more of a fall off the bone rib rather than still having some bite to it. This was my second recipe using my instantpot and I learned after the fact that doubling the recipe doesn’t mean needing to extend the cook time.

    Oh and I did throw them in the oven to broil a bit after cooking them in the instantpot to get some carmelization and a bit of char on top. Yum!

    The ribs needed more time to fall off the bone. Maybe it was because I put two slabs of ribs? Next time I’ll put in for 40 mins.
