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.
I made the recipe as written (with one exception: I used a whole can of chiles in adobo seasoning instead of just 6- we like spicy) and this was very good! The meat had a lot of flavor! Even better next day! Worth a try :)
