Okay my friends...
How are you doing? It is our 17th day staying away from others and I refuse to go stir-crazy! So, I am doing the one thing that I do best… cook. I am trying out and creating all types of new recipes that taste great and will last me several meals (you can be a good guy and share with a neighbor). I am going to be sharing these recipes with you daily.
I used to do a television show in San Francisco, Stump the Chef. I invited our viewers to call in with a recipe request and I would make it on the air. I can’t do that in this format, but I can share some great, easy-to-make recipes that you can easily duplicate at home.
I purchased an Instant Pot last year. An Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot. It's a single appliance that does the job of seven different kitchen appliances or tools 10 times faster using about 70% less energy. They are not very expensive and can easily be purchased online from Amazon, Williams-Sonoma, Target and Walmart. Shop around a bit—I’ve seen them from $80 to $200 depending on the model and the size. Personally, I prefer the 6-quart model.
I love short ribs and I love wine so I married them together to make Instant Pot Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings
1 large yellow onion
2 carrots (use the big thick ones)
2 medium stalks celery
3 to 3 1/2-pounds  boneless beef short ribs
3 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2-3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided
1 cup low-sodium beef broth
4 fresh thyme sprigs
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons fresh basil,  chiffonade cut
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 garlic cloves
3 cups dry red wine
 Many prefer to use boneless rather than bone-in meat for convenience; you won’t lose much flavor.
 To achieve a chiffonade cut, leaves are stacked and tightly rolled before being thinly sliced to produce long, delicate strips.
