  • 3 lbs beef short ribs
  • 5 tbs flour divided
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 2 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp each marjoram and thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup port wine divided
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 1/4 cup steak sauce
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lb carrots cut into 2-inch/5 cm pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar


  • Dredge ribs in 3 tbs of the flour. Reserve leftover flour.
  • Preheat Instant Pot on Sauté high/more setting; add oil.
  • Brown ribs in 2 batches on all sides. Remove from the pot.
  • Add garlic to the pot and heat until fragrant, about 30 setons. Stir in tomato paste, marjoram, thyme and bay leaf. Sauté until tomato paste darkens in color, about 1 minute, then stir in reserved flour from dredging.
  • Deglaze the pot with 1/2 cup of the port, scraping up any browned bits then cook until port is reduced by 1/3 then stir in the stock, remaining 1/2 cup of port, steak sauce, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Return ribs to pot and add the carrots and onion. Close and seal the pot and set on Manual or Pressure Cook for 45 minutes.
  • Do a quick release on the pot and transfer the ribs to a plate. Cover with foil and let them rest for 10 minutes. Remove carrots to a serving bowl.
  • Mix the softened butter and the remaining 2 tbs of flour together to form a paste (this is called beurre manie) and whisk this into the liquid to thicken. Stir in the wine vinegar
  • Garnish with parsley if desired.


UK/EU--steak sauce is A-1 Steak Sauce. HP sauce or brown sauce is a good substitute.
