Instant Pot Italian Beef is the flawless weeknight meal. It’s quick-cooking, tender, and so delicious! Serve this lovely shredded beef as is, or pile onto sandwich rolls for a classic hot and spicy sandwich.
This Instant Pot Italian Beef is so tasty you’ll have a hard time believing it was cooked in under an hour. Thanks to the pressure cooker, you get that slow-cooked, beefy flavor of a roast that has simmered all day long in a fraction of the time.
This versatile beef can be served up so many different ways. Of course, it’s wonderful as a main course, but you can also turn it into tasty tacos, or pile it on as a hearty topping for loaded baked potatoes. But my very preferred way to enjoy it is to make mouth-watering classic Italian Beef Sandwiches.
