There are lots of ways to make braised short ribs or instant pot short ribs. A lot of recipes use wine… but they wrong! This is the best way to make short ribs.
Most of the meals I make are vegetarian. I think eating vegetarian is super healthy, most of the data seems suggest the same. However sometimes I just want some meat. If I’m going to eat meat it had better be good!
This recipe is a great Sunday dinner recipe. You can slow cook it, or make it in a pressure cooker like an instant pot. If you slow cook it it will take between 7 and 8 hours total. If you use the instant pot it will take less then 3!
Most short rib recipes of this variety suggest using wine. They are wrong! This dish is much better with a combination of dry sherry and balsamic vinegar. This combination creates a fantastic complex flavor that is both a bit sour and sweet and it’s still low on carbs if you worry about that sort of thing.
For the sherry I recommend looking for a dry or extra dry sherry. You want to be a little bit careful with the balsamic vinegar if you are on a low carb diet. I’ve noticed that some balsamic vinegars add sugar so check those ingredients carefully!
Even with these ingredients I figure about 14 – 20 grams of carbs per serving.
This recipe makes about 4 servings. You can easily add more meat and use the same base It really comes to having enough space in your cooker.
