  • Cut your roast into 4 equal pcs. if you're making shredded beef, or in 2 equal pieces if you want to slice it when it's done. (I recommend making shredded roast as it will want to fall apart)
  • Put meat into your Instant Pot followed by your sliced onion, can of chiles, sprinkled in packets of french onion soup mix, and then pour your broth/stock on top of everything.
  • Close your lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 55 minutes. (timing good for a 2.5-3.5 lb. roast, may need to adjust if using a smaller or larger piece of meat)
  • Allow to naturally release for 10 minutes, then release rest of steam.
  • Remove meat and cut into small slices or shred if you're making tacos/serving over rice, or slice and serve as is followed by a pour of the juices on top of your meat.
