Instant Pot Taco Meat Recipe:
Barbara’s family loves tacos…any kind of tacos. And, she always has plenty of beef roasts in the freezer from our cattle. She uses a chuck roast in this dish, but you can also use a shoulder or arm roast for this recipe. Unsure about the different cuts of beef? Check out this post from our friend Sarah over at Farmwife Crafts.
But if you don’t have a freezer full of beef, keep your eyes out for good deals on beef roasts and stock up – this instant pot taco beef recipe is worth it! Try our Instant Pot Hawaiian Beef if you have another beef roast waiting in the wings!
Barbara has both an Instant Pot and an electric pressure cooker and they work similarly so use either for this recipe. She loves using these to quickly cook dishes that normally take much longer in the oven or slow cooker.
