Pressure Cooker Red Wine Short Ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender and beefy. They literally cook themselves in the pressure cooker.
- 21/2 lbs short ribs – there were 4 in the package I bought
- 2 carrots – peeled and cut into quarters
- 1/2 onion – sliced
- 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
- 1 TBS ground thyme
- 1 TBS dried rosemary
- 1 cup red wine (I use pinot noir. You can also use cabernet or another dry red wine)
- 1 cup beef broth
- Salt and pepper
- 1 TBS cornstarch
- 1 TBS water
- Set you pressue cooker to the saute setting.
- Liberally salt and pepper all sides of the short ribs.
- Pour the olive oil into the hot pressure cooker.
- Add the short ribs and cook them on all sides until they are fully seared. This will take about 8 minutes to get all the sides browned.
- Remove the short ribs from the pot and place them on a plate.
- Add the red wine and scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to losen all the good pieces from the meat (this is called deglazing the pan).
- Add the beef broth.
- Stir in the thyme and rosemary.
- Add the carrots and onions.
- Add the short ribs back to the pot. Nestle them in between the carrots and onions.
- Close the pressure cooker and set it for 50 minutes.
- When the time is up, self release the steam.
- Remove the short ribs and place them on a plate to rest.
- Strain the liquid and discard the carrots and onions, saving only the broth.
- Return the broth to the pressure cooker and set it on sear.
- Stir together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl.
- When the liquid in the pressure cooker starts to boil, slowly add the cornstarch mixture while stiring the liquid. The liquid with start to thicken and become a gravy. If it’s not thick enough for your liking add another tablespoon of cornstarch and water mixture.
- When the liquid is thickened, tasty it and add additional salt and pepper if needed.
- Pour the liquid over the short ribs.
- Serve with butter noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.
