    *
    freshly ground black pepper
    1/2
    teaspoon
    ground cumin
    1
    tablespoon
    ancho chile powder
    2
    tablespoons
    basil garlic olive oil
    3
    cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2
    cup
    chopped fresh cilantro
    1

    1
    cup
    vegetable broth
    1/4
    cup
    dark brown sugar
    1
    tablespoon
    four-peppercorn blend, crushed
    1/2
    cup
    beef stock
    1
    cup
    red wine ( a good Chilean variety is recommended)
    Directions
    Rinse and pat dry the short ribs. Season with the salt, pepper, cumin and ancho chile powder. Heat the olive oil over high for the stovetop pressure cooker or use the browning setting for the electric pressure cooker.
    Add the short ribs and brown on all sides, about 4 minutes. While the ribs are browning, make the sauce: Add the garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, vegetable broth, sugar and four-peppercorn blend to a food processor and blend for 1 minute, or until the cilantro has liquefied. Cover the ribs with the mixture, using a rubber spatula to scrape the processor. Pour in the beef stock and wine and stir. Cancel cooking for the electric cooker, and close the lid.
    Stovetop: Set to high pressure (15 PSI) and set the timer for 35 minutes. Cook over high heat for 25 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook for the last 10 minutes.
    Electric: Set to high pressure (10–12 PSI) and 40 minutes.
    When done, remove from the heat or turn off the cooker and allow the pressure to release on its own (natural-release), about 12 minutes.
    When all of the pressure is out, adjust for salt and remove the short ribs from the pot. Transfer to a serving platter. Cross-cut across several bones and into three parts or however many bones your ribs have.
    NOTE: If you can’t find basil garlic olive oil, substitute extra-virgin and add 1⁄2 teaspoon of dried basil.
