Instant Pot: Asian Boneless Beef Short Ribs

I made another great tasting recipe in my Instant Pot.  Asian Boneless Beef Short Ribs.   They are tender, flavorful and better that you can get in any restaurant.  As with most Instant Pot recipes, this was easy and quick.

You begin by placing some oil in your Instant Pot and place on the sauté  setting.  Cook some garlic and ginger for about 1 minute.  Add some hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sherry, scallion white and cayenne.  Stir well and then add the beef. I turned my beef so both side could be coated with the sauce.

Set your Instant Pot on high pressure and cook for 35 minutes.  Once the ribs are cooked naturally release the pressure for about 15 minutes.  Vent the remaining pressure and transfer ribs to a platter and tent with foil. Strain the sauce and return to the Instant Pot.  Set on sauté and add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce.  Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 minute.  Pour the sauce in a small bowl.

Serve the ribs with the sauce, rice and top with the scallion greens if desired.
