Succulent Beef Short Ribs


  • 2 lbs beef Short Ribs
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Season the sort ribs with salt and pepper.
  • Add olive oil and butter to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function.
  • When oil gets hot and butter melts, brown the meat on both sides, 6 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  • Add carrot, shallot and garlic to the pot and saute until shallots begin to brown, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add wine to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Put the meat back into to the pot, turning once to coat. Top with thyme sprigs.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  • Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 45 minutes.
  • When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  • Carefully remove the meat from the pot to a serving plate and cover loosely with foil.
  • Using a wide spoon or a fat separator, skim off most of the fat in the remaining liquid and discard.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then select SAUTE. Mix in balsamic vinegar and cook and stir until sauce is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Discard thyme sprigs.
  • Serve beef drizzled with sauce.
