  • 1 slab meaty pork baby back ribs cut into serving pieces


  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger


  • Instant Pot Directions:
  • Place ribs in instant pot/electric pressure cooker and add 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.
  • Seal and cook on “manual” (15 psi/high) for 15 minutes.
  • Let the pot stand for 5 minutes, then release the pressure.
  • Oven Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 450 degree F.
  • Place ribs, meaty side down, in a shallow roasting pan.
  • Roast for 30 minutes; drain off the fat.
  • Turn the ribs meaty side up, reduce oven temp to 350 degrees F and continue roasting (uncovered) for 60 minutes.
  • Slow Cooker Drections:
  • Place ribs in a 5-7 quart slow cooker. Add 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon soy sauce.
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • To Glaze:
  • Place all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and reduce 50% (the consistency should be like a thick syrup).
  • Heat a gas grill to high heat or set broiler to high.
  • Generously glaze the ribs with the prepared glaze.
  • Grill each side for approximately 5 minutes—watch carefully! Don’t allow them to burn, just get bubbly on the surface and slightly crisp.
