  • Cuisine: American, Mexican


  • 2-3 lbs chuck roast
  • 1 cup beef broth (I used bone broth)
  • 2 tbs avocado oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • *add 1 tbs chili powder if desired
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Set instant pot to saute mode. While it is heating, chop your chuck roast into large cubes, place in a large bowl and toss with seasonings
  2. When ready, add avocado oil to the instant pot and then place in seasoned beef. Brown chuck roast on all sides.
  3. Add in beef broth, cover with lid and set the Instant Pot to high pressure for 50 min. Make sure the pressure valve is set to "seal".
  4. When ready, turn the nozzle to quick release using a wooden spoon. (Be careful to avoid the hot steam!)
  5. Once the instant pot has fully vented, shred your meat using 2 forks. You can do this right in the instant pot itself, or remove the meat from the broth and shred in a separate bowl.
  6. Serve with your favorite meal and store leftover beef with a little of the reserved broth in an air tight container for up to a week.
