Instant Pot Margarita Baby Back Ribs

These Instant Pot Margarita Baby Back Ribs are marinated in a delicious Tequila margarita marinade that will knock your socks off.  Making ribs in your instant pot is life changing.  They come out so moist, tender and delicious.  We have never had great luck making ribs on our grille.  They either get too burnt and not moist at all.  You will never want to make ribs any other way once you make your first batch of ribs in your instant pot.  

The Margarita marinade is such a delicious combination of flavors.  It is definitely one of my personal favorites.
