Pressure-cooked Beef Short Ribs

This is one of my favorite meals – and very healthy since the fat content is high, there’s plenty of protein, and practically no carbs.

Let’s talk pressure cookers.

I bought this one at a local kitchen store, and it works just fine. For the most part these things all work the same. They raise the pressure and temperature which raises the boiling point of water (or oil), allowing you to get the same effects of slow-cooking in only an hour or so.

Pressure cookers must be sealed. Also, there is a pressure valve on the top that has two positions: open and closed. Close the lid, close the pressure valve, and start cooking for the desired time.

My cooker has “food settings” which kind of annoy me, as I’m more scientific minded. However, I’ve found that the “chicken/meat” setting works really well.

For short ribs, I combine all my ingredients, close the lid and the pressure valve, select “chicken/meat” and increase the time to an hour. Then I just walk away.

After it comes up to temperature it cooks for an hour, after which the thing beeps. At this point I press the “cancel” button, and using a long wooden spoon or tongs, I open the pressure valve. It’s important that you don’t do this with your bare hand or you’ll get a burn like you’ve never had before.

Once all the pressure has been released, the safety mechanism allows you to open the cooker. It will still be bubbling away.

I take the ribs out and set them aside. They will be falling off the bone and very tender.

Now, all that lovely broth in there is going to make a very nice sauce. I strain it into a saucepan, bring to a simmer, and reduce it until the flavor gets REALLY rich and concentrated. Then add about 1/2 cup or more of heavy cream, bring to a boil, and let it thicken. Pour it over the ribs and enjoy.

I introduced this recipe on my ketogenic lifestyle podcast with Richard Morris, 2 Keto Dudes.

  • 75 minutes seems like a long time… Most recipes for short ribs in the pressure cooker call for 20-40 minutes. How did yours turn out after that long?
