Instant Pot Short Rib Tagliatelle

My Instant Pot short rib tagliatelle is a spin on my short rib bucatini but faster and easier! The flavors are familiar and the taste is out of this world.

This dish needs no introduction–my original short rib bucatini recipe got more hits than I ever imagined so that means you guys really love short ribs! I don’t blame you–what’s not to love? I love how versatile short ribs can be and one of my favorite things to do is to make pasta with the meat. My short rib bucatini takes a while to make and though worth it sometimes we just don’t have that time. This updated recipe takes about half the time and the results are just as good if not better. Here’s the thing, low and slow is great but honey, that Instant Pot pressure is perfect when you’re tight on time. It was getting late the Sunday I decided to make this dish and I just didn’t have three hours to spare to cook the short ribs in the oven. So, I decided to make them in my Instant Pot and there was no flavor lost.

If you’ve read this far then I know I have your attention. Let’s jump right to the recipe.
