Defrost in the fridge for at least 24h or longer. Make sure the ribs are completely defrosted. We do not recommend defrosting in cold water as it simply takes too long for the core of the ribs to defrost.
Once defrosted open the package and let the meat breathe for at least 15 minutes. Pat dry excess moisture with a paper towel. The color will change to a vivid red.
There are many ways to prepare beef short ribs, the recommend either slow cooking or pressure cooking the short ribs. You can bbq them but you'll need to break down the collagen first which is only possible if you slow cook or pressure cook the spare ribs. Another way is to smoke them for an extended period of time.
We'll be presenting the pressure-cooker method which is the easiest and fastest preparation method. Cut the short rib into smaller cuts along with the bones.
Next, season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Place the ribs into your pressure cooker and add one cup of water.
Cook for 60 to 90 minutes - this highly depends on your pressure cooker. Pro tip: If you're not sure about cooking times, always undercook rather than overcook! You can always bring the food back under pressure and continue cooking until you're happy with the results. We cooked ours for 60 minutes with an electric pressure cooker.
After cooking your kitchen will be filled with a beefy succulent aroma. The short ribs are done when you can easily and one-handedly insert a fork into the meat part.
Like cooking methods, there are many ways to serve short ribs. The fanciest way is to serve with mashed potatoes and gravy sauce.
Eating with kids or like to have it simple? Shred the short ribs and serve together with your vegetable soup or next to green peas and mashed potatoes.
Never ever throw away the beef stock produced while cooking the short ribs. They are worth gold. This is not just any beef stock, this is top quality 100% grass-fed beef stock. For gravy sauce: heat up the beef stock, once it starts bubbling add any kind of starch or flour until it thickens. Keep whiskering until you have a thick texture. Adjust with either flour or more water. Now add black pepper and salt for taste. Be careful not to add to much salt. There you have your rich gravy sauce. Enjoy.
