  • Add broth, pepperoncini juice, pepperoncini peppers, Italian seasoning, red chili flakes, salt, pepper and mix everything together. 
  • Put the lid on and turn up the the valve to “Sealing.” Select “Manual” mode and set the time for 50 minutes.
  • When the cook time is over, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes before turning the valve to “Venting.”
  • Open the lid and shred beef with 2 forks. Enjoy!
    Note: If you want the "beef au jus" to be thicker, cook uncovered on the "Saute" setting until liquid is reduced to your desired consistency.
