Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 1 hr
Servings: 4 -6


  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 3 pounds short ribs
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespooons or 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 sprigs sage


  • Set Instant Pot to 'saute' mode and add ghee.
  • Season short ribs with salt and pepper. Once ghee is melted, add short ribs to the Instant pot to brown, 4-5 minutes per side. You will need to work in 2-3 batches to make sure you don't overcrowd the pan.
  • Once the short ribs are browned, remove them from the pan and add the garlic, and saute until fragrant.
  • Next, add the red wine, scraping up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Then, add the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. Add the short ribs back to the pot along with the rosemary and sage.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set it to "manual" and adjust to 45 minutes. Let the pressure release for about 15-20 minutes, then open the pot.
  • Serve!
