Instant Pot Beef Barbacoa (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Low Carb)

September 30, 2017Rachel

This Instant Pot Beef Barbacoa is simple to make in about an hour and results in delicious, tender, shredded beef. 

Here is a super quick and simple barbacoa recipe that is made in the Instant Pot. This is perfect for meal prep too! Just keep a big batch in the fridge and have protein ready to add to any meal. 

This is so good! So good that I wish I had made a double batch. It did not last as long as I hoped. I want to put this meat on everything. In my omelets, in a taco, on a salad, in a burrito, in a box with a fox, in a house with a mouse!
It’s also simple. Really simple. And really quick for fall-off-the-bone meat. I love the big bold flavor of the meat and how well it pairs with different meals. Make it for tacos in the evening, then use it in the morning to flavor up your eggs, then make a taco salad for lunch.
