Mealthy Tip

Lager or Pilsner beers are ideal for this dish, they tend to be sleek and crisp. The beer you select should be full of flavor, showcasing some earthiness along with that spic, plus some florals and green flavors. Remember never cook with a beer your wouldn't drink!

These beef braised short ribs were so yummy! So many flavors in this dish, from the soy sauce to the broth to the peppers. The meat was also juicy and tender, pressure cooked to perfection.

This is an incredible, delicious short ribs recipe. I especially liked the cayenne, paprika and oregano flavors. I served them over mashed potatoes. Very impressive.

The best thing about this recipe is that you have to open a beer and can then finish it while it cooks! Okay, that's not true. The best thing is that the meat comes out tender, well-seasoned, and juicy, but "beer for the cook" is a close second. Butter some crusty bread and use it to sop up the juices. You'll be glad you did.

I used a lager beer, which was really good, and I served it with mashed potatoes and veggies. This dish had a ton of flavor and really tender meat.

We used a pilsner beer and homemade beef broth to cook these short ribs. I always usually prepare it in my dutch oven, but this pressure cooker recipe gets the job done in less time.

The short ribs cooked down/shrank a lot (bone in) so keep that in mind. The broth also became greasy so should be skimmed/separated. It tasted like an Italian pot roast, but the flavors were very mild. Served it with mashed potatoes, peas, and roasted broccoli/cauliflower mix. It was good, but I’d only make it if short ribs are on sale.

This is my favorite recipe ever. The beer flavor really came through. As another review noted, the beef shrinks down a LOT so you get 2-3 servings out of this. Not as much as you’d think because of the weight - a lot of that is bone.

Made this last night. Best short ribs I’ve ever had. I love this recipe and my Mealthy cooker.

Fantastic. I doubled the recipe and it was still below the limit on the pot. I used a nice amber beer and it came out great. Super tender.
