Combine brown sugar and salt in a small bowl
Sprinkle the dry rub onto the ribs and rub it onto both the top and bottom
Place ribs, water, garlic, and onion into the Ninja Foodi
Place pressure lid ensuring the release valve is set to SEAL
Pressure cook for 30 minutes
Let the ribs natural release for 10 minutes, and then release the pressure manually
Remove the ribs from the pot and pat dry with a paper towel
Smother and glaze both the top and bottom of the ribs with maple syrup
Layer the ribs in the Cook & Crisp basket using the Cook & Crisp Insert rack
Close the crisping lid and Air Crisp at 400ºF for 10 minutes
- This recipe is ideally made using real maple syrup but if pancake syrup is all you have, that's ok, the ribs will still turn out tender and delicious!
- Heat up the maple syrup before glazing to ensure a nice spreadable consistency that will coat the ribs evenly
- When air crisping the ribs, use the Cook & Crisp basket along with the Cook & Crisp Insert Rack from the Ninja Foodi Pro Accessory Bundle to help layer the ribs if more cooking space is needed.
- This recipe was made using the Ninja Foodi, a programmable multi-use pressure cooker that can also steam, saute, slow cook, dehydrate, bake, broil, roast and air crisp.
- You can also make this recipe with an Instant Pot Duo Crisp, a multi-use programmable cooker that can pressure cook, saute, slow cook, steam, sous vide, air fry, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate.
- If you don't have the air crisp option, you can make this recipe with an Instant Pot Duo, a multi-use programmable cooker that can pressure cook, saute, slow cook, steam, warm and also make yogurt and rice. To finish the ribs, you will need to use an oven and broil for 3-5 minutes, or until your desired doneness.
