  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 2.5 pounds Chuck roast Trimmed of excess fat
  • 2 cups Beef broth Low sodium
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1.5 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp Onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp Paprika powder
  • 1.5 tbsp Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Red chili flakes Optional


  • Turn Instant pot to "Saute"mode and heat oil.
  • Add roast and sear one side until golden brown. Then, flip it over and sear the other side. 
  • Sear and brown the sides of the roast too.
  • Add broth, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika powder, vinegar, red chili flakes and mix to combine everything together.
  • Put the lid on and turn the the valve to "Sealing." 
  • Select "Manual" mode and set the timer for 60 minutes.
  • When the cook time is over, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before turning the valve to "Venting."
  • Open the lid and shred beef with 2 forks. 
  • Select the "Saute" mode and cook until liquid is reduced to your desired consistency. I like the sauce to be thick and really coating the beef and thus, I reduce a lot. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
