Electric Pessure Cooker...Instant Pot

Beef Short Ribs

Pressure cooking made even easier. Beef short ribs in 40 minutes. Made this over the weekend.  Tastes like it cooked for hours. This summer I used the Instant Pot non stop, bought it on amazon. It produces very little heat, big plus and it's the only electric pressure cooker with a stainless steel tub on the market (others are non-stick). It'll change your life.  The pressure cooker changed my life a few years ago and honestly, I never thought I'd go electric.  I started reading reviews on this particular one and they were all I wanted that I had no idea I wanted. XO. 

The Instant Pot will:  steam, pressure cook, saute, make yogurt, slow cook, cook rice, cook beans etc... You name it, it'll make it.  Since I purchased this I have not used my slow cooker nor my stove top pressure cooker, BUT I don't want to get rid of them, not just yet.  

Beef Short Rib Recipe

3 lbs of beef short ribs (separate each)
3 T tomato paste
2 T olive oil
1 med-lg onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, cut into 1" chunks
5 carrots, cut into 2" chunks
6 garlic cloves, whole
2 cups water
6-8 sprigs of thyme
2, 6" rosemary sprigs
salt + pepper to taste

Press the saute option.  Once it feels hot...1-2 minutes, add oil and 1/2 the ribs.  Brown.  Remove once browned, add the remaining ribs.  Brown.  Remove. Leave oil in tub.  Add onion, celery and garlic.  Saute for 4 minutes.  Add tomato paste, saute for 3 minutes (stir).  Add ribs, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper and water into the cooker.  Now cancel saute and pressure cook for 30 minutes.  I like to let the pressure release on it's own...this can take 10 minutes after the 30 minutes of pressure.  Once pressure is down I add the carrots at this stage and pressure cook for 4 minutes (you can add potatoes or sweet potatoes, if you like).
ps...it's gluten free

Your dish is now ready.  Enjoy.  Invite someone over.  Share the love.
