Instant Pot Gluten Free Beef Short Ribs

Instant Pot Gluten Free Beef Short Ribs...oh my

Keep the rest of the meal gluten free by pairing the ribs with potatoes, Short-grained brown rice or quinoa and a vegetable. Or not, I’m going to have mine with creamy Orzo with onions and peppers. I know, I know more cream, but I’m sitting here and my mouth is watering. There is a gluten free Orzo out there, it’s called DeLallo Italian Gluten Free Orzo. Just incase your missing Orzo, it’s worth a try.

I don’t know if you have an Instant Pot, but it makes life so much easier. Not only with how fast it cooks, the cleanup is a breeze. This is the only way I make my hard boiled eggs, 5 minutes and they are done AND PERFECT! Mashed potatoes only take 8 minutes. I use the Mini Instant Pot, it’s the perfect size for me and an occasional granddaughter or two.

This recipe serves 3-4 (1-2 Ribs per person, 2-3 lbs) I’m going to cook only 4 ribs in my Mini, their total weight is 1.6 lbs. Total Time: about an hour.

  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water
