  • 1 beef roast approximately 2 pounds, not frozen
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth water can be used
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  1. Add beef roast and beef broth to the electric pressure cooker insert.
  2. Cover and seal. Cook on high pressure for 99 minutes. (Refer to the instruction manual of your pressure cooker for recommended cook time for a beef roast.) Release pressure with natural release method.
  3. Remove the beef, and shred with 2 forks.
  4. Drain off broth from cooker insert. (This can be saved and used in a different recipe).
  5. Add shredded beef, barbeque sauce and crushed pineapple back to the cooker insert.
  6. Cover and seal. Cook on high pressure for 1 minute. Release pressure using quick pressure release so that the barbeque sauce does not caramelize.
