Instant Pot Shredded Beef Recipe
Instant Pot Shredded Beef with peppers and onions is one of the best pressure cooker dinner recipes! Transform your chuck roast into this delicious meal!
Set your Instant Pot to Saute mode and add 1 tablespoon of the oil. When the oil is hot, add the peppers. You want them to get seared but not soggy, so you may want to brown them in small batches. Only stir occasionally to prevent burning. Once the edges get nice color, transfer them to a separate plate and continue cooking remaining peppers. Follow same process with the onion. Set aside.
With the Instant Pot still on saute mode, add the remaining tablespoon of oil with the chuck roast and allow to brown on both sides, about a 5 minute sear on each side to brown the outside.
Add the taco seasoning and water and set to high pressure for 60 minutes. Once done, you can quick release pressure or allow it to natural release. Transfer the cooked roast to a cutting board and set the Instant Pot back to saute mode with the lid off to allow the liquid to reduce.
Once the roast is cool enough to handle, use a couple forks to shred the meat and discard any fat (unless you like to leave it in). Once the liquid is reduced by about half, turn Instant Pot to warm setting and add the shredded meat to the sauce. Stir to coat.
Add the browned peppers and onions to the meat mixture and stir to coat or serve them on the side. Serve shredded beef with peppers and onions as a main course or add to burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc.
