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.

Barbecue Sauce

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.

Pineapple Chunks

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.

  1. Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – thisfamilylifewelive.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across thisfamilylifewelive.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
