Korean Braised Beef Short Ribs (Galbijjim)
I like to make galbijjim, the popular Korean comfort-food dish, with boneless beef short ribs. It’s less traditional than using bone-in ribs, but hey, so is cook¬ing the ribs in a pressure cooker! This recipe requires no browning step, since the sauce has plenty of deep flavor from the garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.
Recipe (serves 6 – 8)
Pat the ribs dry with paper towels. Cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces and add them to the Instant Pot.
In a blender or food processor, combine the onion, pear, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, mirin, and soy sauce and process until smooth. Pour the sauce over the short ribs and stir to coat evenly. Arrange the rib pieces in a single layer. Secure the lid and set the Pressure Release to Sealing. Select the Meat/Stew setting for 35 minutes at high pressure.
When the timer goes off, you can either perform a quick release by moving the Pressure Release to Venting, or you can let the pressure release naturally, then leave the ribs in the Instant Pot on the Keep Warm setting for up to 10 hours.
Open the pot and stir in the carrots and daikon. Secure the lid once again and set the Pressure Release to Sealing. Press the Cancel button to reset the cook¬ing program, then select the Manual program and set the cooking time for 3 minutes at high pressure. Perform a quick release by moving the Pressure Release to Venting. Open the pot and, using a slotted spoon, transfer the meat and vegetables to a serving dish and keep warm. Use a ladle or large spoon to skim the fat from the sauce.
In a bowl, stir together the cornstarch and water. Press the Cancel button to reset the cooking program, then select the Sauté setting. When the sauce comes to a simmer, stir in the cornstarch mixture and let it boil for 1 minute, until the sauce has thickened, then press the Cancel button to turn off the Instant Pot.
Spoon the thickened sauce over the meat and vegetables. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and green onions on top and serve.
