Sunday is the day My partner Maritza and i decided to figure out what to do with the short ribs we got on sale from whole foods. We brainstormed on how could we make a delicious meal of fall apart tender perfection, infuse it with a rich red wine, and still call it healthy?
This version of our braised short ribs is prepared using the wondrous Instant Pot. Pair with creamy mashed sweet potatoes or roasted brussel sprouts for a dinner to enjoy down to the last sumptuous forkful. For best results forget the fork, just take these down savage style!
