Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 4


  • Pressure Cooker


  • 3 lb Boneless Beef Chuck Roast
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp Chili oil or 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp Fish Sauce optional
  • 8 Street Style Flour Tortillas

For Coleslaw

  • 2 cups Coleslaw Mix
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Pear optional
  • 2 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar would also work if you don't have fresh limes


  • Cut up beef chuck roast into quarters. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Heat vegetable oil in your Instant Pot on Saute mode.
  • Saute beef on all sides for about 3-5 minutes each, until a nice brown sear is achieved
  • Meanwhile mix the remaining sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and chili oil or cayenne in a bowl
  • When the meat is done searing, press CANCEl on the Instant Pot and pour the sauce over the beef.
  • Close and seal lid, set timer on Manual High pressure to 45 minutes.
  • When meat is done cooking, allow to release naturally for 5-10 minutes, then do a manual quick release for remaining pressure. Remove beef from the pot and allow to cool slightly until you can shred it.
  • To make slow, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
  • Top warm tortillas with beef and coleslaw mix and serve immediately.


If you are using a 2-2.5 lb cut of meat, reduce your cooking time by 5 minutes.
If you would like to cook in the slow cooker or use the slow cooker function on the Instant Pot, cook for 6-7 hours.
