These Instant Pot Short Ribs are super tender and packed with tons of wonderful flavor! This recipe is my new version of my super popular Slow Cooker Short Rib recipe that I’ve adapted to work with the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker!

I started making short ribs about 5 years ago and I’ve had them in my favorite recipe folder ever since. I make them at least once a month during the winter and up until now I’ve always made them in my slow cooker.
However, this past Christmas is when I received my Instant Pot as a gift from Thomas and I’ve started turning some of my favorite slow cooker recipes into Instant Pot recipes.
I know a lot of y’all are loving your Instant Pots too! You’re going to be crazy about this recipe, y’all! Ps. did you know that the original slow cooker recipe (Slow Cooker Short Ribs) that this recipe was adapted from is one of the MOST POPULAR recipes on my blog? It is!
I hope that y’all love this Instant Pot version just as much as y’all have loved the slow cooker version!
So to make this recipe, you’ll need an Instant Pot (an electric pressure cooker), some short ribs and a few other simple ingredients.
You can find the entire recipe at the bottom of the post.
Oh and since I know someone will ask… I’ve only made my short ribs recipes with bone in short ribs. It’ll probably work just as well with the boneless short ribs that you can get but to be honest, I’ve never made these recipes with the boneless ones, so I’m not sure if the time is the same.
Also, y’all…don’t skip the browning of the ribs. I know that on my slow cooker version that a lot of people have e-mailed me asking if they could skip that part. While I’m not going to curse your short ribs if you skip that part, you just shouldn’t skip it. It give it flavor and a great texture and I just think that it must be done!
However, when I’m eating low carb, I will leave off the mashed potatoes and serve these short ribs with greens beans and cauliflower rice.
No matter what side dish you pick, you’re going to love these Instant Pot Short Ribs!
Don’t forget…if you don’t have an Instant Pot, I’ve got a Slow Cooker recipe here!
