Asian Sticky Beef Short Ribs | Instant Pot | Kravings

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Inspired by a recent video by Marion’s Kitchen, I created this recipe with my spin on it and cooked it in less time using an Instant Pot. I really love to slow cook, it cooks the meat giving it an incredible fall of the bone texture, however, sometimes you don’t have the time to slow cook and a pressure cooker will cook this for you in half the time. Once this recipe is ready to be cooked you can choose either method that suits your need.

In this recipe, the short ribs are sauteed and kept aside with whole spices. Onions, Ginger Garlic & green Chillies are sauteed and then the pan is de glazed with Shaoxing wine and brown sugar and enhanced with Soya. The Star anise and Ginger in this dish shine and the combination between sweet, salt & spice is perfectly balanced. Stock is added and the Beef is cooked in this delicious marriage of flavors.
