Pressure cooker braised short ribs in red wine sauce is a meal that seems fancy but is casual!
Instant Pot or Other Pressure Cooker?
There are many brands of electric pressure cookers out there. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with whichever one you purchase as long as you get the settings you need and will use. We purchased the Pampered Chef Quick Cooker for my oldest daughter for Christmas… if she’s reading this she will know what one of her gifts is…. but I decided on it because it is so easy to use. I hosted a party so I got it for the same price as the Instant Pot. THIS IS NOT SPONSORED. But I love my Instant Pot but thought the other version would be easier for her to use. It’s just about finding what works best for you! I knew it had to have the sautee setting because it’s essential to make braised meats.
What you need for this recipe:
I made boneless beef short ribs for this recipe because they have more meat and less fat and bone. I wanted a higher yield of protein. Next time I might mix some boneless and some bone in ribs for presentation. People like to see the meat falling off the bone. 🙂
Boneless Beef Shortribs
Mirepoix- carrots, onion, and celery chopped
1 garlic clove
Paleo powder or any beef seasoning mix
Salt and pepper
That’s it! It all goes into your Pressure Cooker or Instant Pot and Voila dinner is ready! I served these with mashed cheesy cauliflower but you could make them with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice or any veggie noodle you like. So many delicious options.
Here’s the step by step:
Turn your Pressure Cooker on to the Sautee setting. Add a little oil to the pot.
Add Tapioca starch, Paleo Powder, Salt and Pepper to a bowl that is big enough to put the ribs in.
Dredge Shortribs in the mixture.
Sear Ribs on each side in the Instant Pot. Work in batches until all are done.
Add Mirepoix and garlic. Sautee until the vegetables start to get soft.
Add tomato paste and red wine. Continue to simmer so it reduces in volume.
It smells delicious at this point of the recipe!
Add the meat back to the pot and snuggle it down into the sauce. Add additional beef broth to cover the ribs.
Shut the sautee mode off. Put the lid on and turn on to manual mode for 75 minutes. It will be worth the wait! I promise! Listen for the cooker to seal and you are on your way to a delicious dinner.
Make your side dishes and Voila! Fancy, not fancy dinner is served!
