Jaryd always jokes whenever we go out to a restaurant with short ribs on the menu I can’t resist. They just call me and I can’t help but see them as the only option. It happens time and again without fail.

With the holiday season upon us, I couldn’t help but think of all those other special meals you eat that may not necessarily be the holiday dinner, but one that you want to be similarly special. Maybe you get together with old friends, maybe family is in town for the holidays and you want to catch up over a home cooked dinner. It’s those in between holiday meals that can also be really special.

Instant Pot Beef Short Ribs

So today, I wanted to share one of those recipes that you can cook up in a jiffy without missing out on any precious time with your loved ones. These short ribs are so juicy and tender and Swanson Beef Broth makes for the delicious base for the sauce. It adds a perfect undercurrent of flavor that doesn’t overpower but rather pulls it all together.

What I love about this recipe is it’s one of those meals that seems really intimidating and fancy but it’s so simple and approachable, especially since we’re making it in our Instant Pot! If you have an Instant Pot, great! This meal comes together in under an hour.

Add all the ingredients to the Instant Pot and set it to low for 6 – 8 hours. I mean does it really get any better than coming home from work to a house that smells delightful and dinner basically already made? No, I didn’t think so.

So, let’s jump into the recipe and make some Instant Pot beef short ribs!

Place the short ribs, onion, carrots, broth, wine, coconut sugar, garlic, tomato paste, thyme leaves, salt and pepper in your Instant Pot. Make sure the valve is set to sealing and set the Instant Pot on high for 40 minutes.

After it’s done cooking, vent the Instant Pot and allow the steam to release. You’ll know the meat is done cooking because the beef will pull away from the bone.

Scoop the meat and most of the veggies out and place in a separate bowl to the side. Remove and discard any leftover thyme leaf stems.

Turn the Instant Pot to sauté for 5 minutes. Add the arrowroot to the Instant Pot and whisk frequently for 10-15 minutes until the sauté thickens and reduces. Add the meat and veggies back to the Instant Pot and keep warm until ready to eat. Serve on top of mashed potatoes, or my favorite, cauliflower mash and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
