Hearty Beef Short Ribs
During the winter I always find myself reaching for a roast... does anyone else get in a roast slump? Let me introduce you to one of my very favorite cuts of beef to substitute in my meal routine when I have leaned a little to heavily on roasts. Short ribs are excellent when prepared in a pressure cooker, crock pot or in your oven low and slow! If you want the quickest option then opt for your pressure cooker. Here is how I dress my short ribs up and prepare a nice hearty meal to warm your bellies this cold season!
First season short ribs with seasoned salt and pepper on all sides. Add oil to your pot over medium heat using the sauté function of your pressure cooker. Brown ribs on all sides. Remove to plate and keep warm. Add in two chopped onions and cook until tender. Add 5 cloves of garlic and 1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste, Italian seasoning, 1 bay leaf and place ribs back into pot. Add 2 cups of red wine and 1-2 cups of beef broth (you may use beef broth entirely if you choose not to incorporate wine). Bring to a boil and continue to stir and cook until the liquid cooks halfway down. Add your ribs back to the pot and then pressure cook on high for 40 minutes. Quick release pressure and add 3/4 bag of baby carrots, cook 9-10 additional minutes at full pressure (depending on how soft you prefer your carrots). After the final 9-10 minutes I opt to use the natural release function. You may quick release, but I find you run the risk of drying out your meat this way. If you want to use the quick release function then consider knocking off a few minutes of the initial cook time but I highly recommend being patient and using the natural release method.
Remove the short ribs and vegetables to a dish and cover to keep warm. Turn your pressure cooker to sauté. Make a corn starch slurry with 3 Tbls of water and 4 tsp of corn starch. Add to the liquid and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until liquid thickens as gravy. Serve with mashed potatoes and baked macaroni and cheese like us and you’ll have a pleasing dinner for your whole family! #thegrocerygal #oklahomaproducedbeef #oklahomagrown #beefitswhatsfordinner #sheltonsgrocery #waltershometowngrocery #kennysseasoning #mccormickspice #huntstomatopaste #kitchenbasics #ninjakitchen #thegrocerygalcooks
