What are Short Ribs?

Bone-in short ribs come from the stomach and are a lot fattier cut of meat.

You can get the bones removed from bone-in short ribs if you want, which is how I got with this Instant Pot Short Ribs recipe.

Pro Tip: Lessen a bit of the time to cook if you are using boneless ribs.

Why use Bourbon Whiskey?

You can utilize Scotch bourbon just in case that you like it, however, whiskey is my preference over Scotch.

The taste that it leaves behind is inconspicuous, however, it truly adds to the flavor in Instant Pot Short Ribs.

Do I have to add sugar?

Be sure of your level of sweetness as you would prefer.
For me, I have added 3 tablespoons of it.

Can I add more spices?

These Instant Pot Short Ribs are cooked flawlessly in a somewhat sweet and balanced spice.

I added cayenne pepper and paprika to give these short ribs a little fiery and spicy flavor.

In any case, go ahead and change the level of flavor & spice as you would prefer.
