    What are short ribs? Short ribs are a cut of beef from the brisket, chuck or plate that contains the ends of the ribs.

    Short Ribs can be fork tender and one of the most decadent cuts of meat you’ll ever sink your teeth into. They can also be tough and flavorless. One if the most popular ways to cook short ribs is by braising.

    My favorite braised short rib recipe from Anne Burrell is a time sucker. Browning the meat, food processing veggies, cooking, sauteing, yada, yada, yada and then finally a long 3 hour braise.

    While my Instant Pot Short Ribs is not a “quick” recipe, it is quicker than traditionally braised short ribs. The only set back is that the liquid doesn’t reduce and thicken during the cooking process.

    By reducing the initial liquid and then thickening with cornstarch, you’ll get the same results with just as much flavor, but with much less work.

    I know that many people expect Instant Pot recipes to be…well…instant but I’m finding that I love using my Instant Pot to make recipes that aren’t necessarily “instant” but still much, much faster than the traditional cooking methods.

    Sometimes you just can’t cut out all of the cooking time but you CAN make the entire process much easier.

    And we know easy is the name of my game in the kitchen. In my opinion, if you’re getting the same results with much less work, why not make pressure cooker short ribs?

    This braised short rib recipe is great for dinner any night of the week. I like to serve it with traditional American BBQ side dishes, like mac and cheese or potato salad, even though these Instant Pot short ribs are not a traditionally cooked BBQ dish.
