What’s in it-

2 celery stocks , chopped

1 tablespoon canola oil

2 bay leaves

1 tablespoon dried thyme

Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

2.5 tablespoons cornstarch

3 tablespoons  cold water

Let’s Put it Together-

Brown Short Ribs in Instant Pot: Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More. Wait until it says HOT, Add 1 tbsp canola oil in Instant Pot. Season one side generously with salt and black pepper. Add in 3 pieces of short ribs, then brown each side for 4 minutes, top, bottoms and sides.

1. Saute Onion & Garlic: Set aside the browned short ribs. Add in sliced onions, and saute until soften about 5 minutes. Add  garlic, and sauté until fragrant.

2. Add the carrots and celery: Add in the baby carrots, celery, a pinch of dried thyme, and 2 bay leaves, then sauté for 2 minutes.

3. Deglaze Instant Pot: Pour 3/4 –  cup red wine in Instant Pot and stir the brown bits that are stuck to the bottom (pure golden flavor) off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.

4. Pressure Cook Short Ribs: Add 1 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp  fish sauce, 1  tbsp brown sugar, 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and 3/4 cup beef stock in Instant Pot.  Add in the browned short ribs.

 Then, pressure cook: High Pressure 45 minutes + Natural Release 15 minutes


5. Thicken & Seasonings: Carefully set aside the short ribs out of the cooking liquid. Mix 3 tbsp cornstarch and 3 tbsp cold water together in a small mixing bowl. Bring the sauce to a simmer (I used the sauté mode.)  and add the cornstarch mixture one third at a time to thicken the red wine sauce until the thickness you like has occurred. Let is simmer slowly for 5-10 min.  Season to taste with more salt, black pepper.
