This Instant Pot Barbacoa is bursting with flavor and so versatile that it will soon be one of your top ways to cook beef. It’s juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned!
Push the “Sauté “button on the Instant Pot and set to high. Add 1 tbsp of the olive oil and allow to get hot.
Add the beef to the Instant Pot
and sear the meat on all sides until well-browned, about 3 minutes each side.
Combine the chipotles, green chiles, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, cumin, oregano, sea salt, black pepper, cloves, and remaining olive oil. Add to the Instant Pot.
Return the meat to the Instant Pot.
Use the barbacoa beef in tacos, topping with avocado, red onion, cottage cheese (AKA queso fresco), fresh cilantro and the salsa verde. Alternatively, enjoy with cauliflower rice, as a topping on a crunchy salad, or as an accompaniment to baked pita chips, and more.
