For the Beef Short Ribs:

  • 3 lbs. bone-in beef short ribs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup water

For the glaze:

  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang Korean hot pepper paste + more if more heat is desired
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For garnish:

  • roasted sesame seeds
  • finely diced scallions or green onions


For the Beef Short Ribs:

  • Using a large mixing bowl, place the beef short ribs in the bowl and add the garlic powder, onion powder, ground ginger, pepper and salt and rub this mixture all over the short ribs. Place the rack insert into the inner cooker pot of your instant pot and pour in 1 cup of water.
  • Place the beef ribs onto the rack, so they are sitting on the rack above the water.
  • Put the instant pot lid on, make sure the valve is in the sealed position, then cook on high pressure for 30 minutes. Please note, it will take about 5 to 10 minutes or so for your instant pot to come to pressure. When finished, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes (do not open the valve for 10 minutes after the 30 minute cook time is over). Once it’s released naturally for 10 minutes, finish with a quick release (open the valve).

For the glaze:

  • Combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking until smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the broiler on in your oven and place the beef short ribs on a foil lined baking sheet. Brush the glaze on all sides of the ribs and broil for 2 minutes.


To serve, garnish with the sesame seeds and diced green onions. Enjoy!
