I have never been the patient one in the kitchen and I’ve also been known to be hangry at times. If you’re like me, this Quick and Easy Hawaiian Ribs Dump & Go Style will be your new go to dinner recipe.
Our freezer and pantry is always stocked with ingredients for our 2 go-to dinner meals – Easy Baked Mayonnaise Salmon and this Quick and Easy Hawaiian Ribs Dump & Go Style.
You will need…
Ribs of course. We prefer baby back ribs, but any kind will do. Remember to remove the membrane on the back of the ribs! Then cut the ribs into slices.
Pick whichever is your favorite. A thick BBQ sauce works best for this. If you’re on a keto or low carb diet, just chose a compliant BBQ sauce.
We prefer pineapple chunks in pineapple sauce – but you do you boo! You can even use pineapple tidbits if that’s what you have in your pantry. If you only have pineapple slices, just cut them up.
If you are on a keto or low-carb diet, make sure not to add the liquid from the pineapple chunks into the pot. The pineapple is added for the Hawaiian flavor – not eating them will keep the macros in this recipe within the keto and low-carb range per serving.
How to Cook
Dump all of your ingredients in an Instapot or Ninja Foodie using the air pressure lid.
If you prefer saucier ribs, add most of the liquid from the pineapple chunks. If you prefer ribs covered with a thicker BBQ sauce then don’t add the liquid from the pineapple chunks.
If your ribs are frozen, cook on high pressure for about 50-60 minutes. Note that frozen ribs will make for a saucier version – so if you like ribs covered thickly in BBQ sauce, thaw your ribs first.
If your ribs are at room temperature, cook on high for about 30-35 minutes.
You can definitely plate and eat all the yummy BBQ goodness once the timer goes off.
If you have an air fryer or using a Ninja Foodie – with the air fryer lid, you can make a crispy version. After the ribs are pressure cooked, place ribs in a single layer in an air fryer. Air fry for about 5-7 minutes – basting the ribs with BBQ sauce in the middle of cooking works well too!
Also, air frying the pineapple chunks for about 3-5 minutes works wonders with the flavors.
This Quick and Easy Hawaiian Ribs Dump and Go Style goes well with a whole lot of sides.
If you are on a keto or low-carb diet, a compliant coleslaw works great. A salad with a vinaigrette dresing works well to cut out the heaviness of the BBQ sauce.
A loaded potato salad or creamy mashed potatoes will go a long way with this recipe too. Use the Hawaiian BBQ sauce as gravy for the creamy mashed potatoes.
But if you’re feeling tired and don’t want to put any more effort on the sides, steamed broccoli or corn would work well too.
