Short Ribs in the Pressure Cooker
bone-in beef short ribs (about 4 pounds)
yellow onion, chopped
beef broth, reduced sodium
1Season ribs generously with salt and pepper. Add oil to the pressure cooking pot and heat over high heat. When oil is hot, brown the ribs in small batches, do not crowd. Remove to a plate.
2Add bacon to pressure cooking pot and cook until brown and crisp. Add onion to pressure cooking pot and sauté until tender about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook one minute more.
3Add the wine and using a wooden spoon, scrape any brown bits from bottom of pan. Add beef broth, tomato paste, and ribs to pressure cooking pot, cover and lock lid in place.
4Bring up to high pressure and when at pressure, turn down heat to keep pressure steady. Cook for 30 minutes.
5Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes, then release pressure. Remove lid.
6With tongs, remove ribs to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm. Use a fat separator and a mesh strainer to separate the fat from the juices. Return juices to the cooking pot.
7In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water. Add to juices in the cooking pot. Place pan over medium-high heat and bring to boil, stirring constantly, until juices thicken.
8Return ribs to pot and stir to coat meat with sauce. Serve ribs with sauce.
