Instant Pot Beef Stew
This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light's wildly popular Classic Slow Cooker Beef Stew to create a simple, speedy version of a comfort food favorite. As the original recipe notes, a nutty dark beer adds richness and depth to the stew, but be careful not to choose a beer that's super-hoppy; it will taste too bitter.
Instant Pot Oxtails
Oxtails might be considered a “tough” cut of beef, but when they're stewed at a gentle simmer for hours, the meat melts right off of the bones. In other words, braised oxtails are a perfect hearty comfort food to warm you during the cooler months. And thanks to the Instant Pot, you can pressure cook and enjoy this meaty, succulent dish within an hour (as opposed to the 2-3 hours typically required). The touch of molasses serves to deepen the color of the gravy and balance the earthiness of the spices and herbs. The tomato, tomato paste, and starchy cannellini beans combine to help to create a thick, rich gravy that’s best served over rice (in our opinion). With the speedy power of the Instant Pot, oxtails can now be an approachable everyday dinner.
Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

Our easy Instant Pot corned beef recipe is sure to be a fast family favorite. Serve this hearty dish with plenty of crusty bread for sopping up the rich juices. Any leftover meat makes for amazing next-day corned beef sandwiches.
Instant Pot Barbacoa
The Instant Pot has taken over taco Tuesdays with its easy edition of beef barbacoa. This adaptation of the traditional Mexican-style dish features an array of warm spices, chipotle chiles, and fresh lime juice—all used to impart deep flavor into a beef chuck roast. If you tend to enjoy things on the spicier side, chop up 2-3 more chipotle chiles to achieve that fiery, but tolerable, kick. Between the adobo sauce and the ancho chili powder, the meat has a nice smoky flavor profile, that is deliciously backed by the rich, savoriness of the beef. The roast is braised and pressure cooked for 40 minutes to reveal totally tender and succulent beef that pulls apart effortlessly. When you are ready to build your taco, serve the shredded beef on a warm corn tortilla with sliced radishes, queso fresco, and a fresh squeeze of lime juice.
