We are breaking records in Phoenix this week, 118 degrees two days in a row! Yes, I realize it is the dessert and crazy high temperatures are normal this time of year, but no one is prepared for 118 degrees now matter how long you have lived here! This recipe is my answer to crazy temperatures, and how I manage to not use my oven during the summer.

It also helps when the grocery store has beef chuck on sale, like I would need an additional excuse to make this delicious Instant Pot Italian Beef.

How to make Instant Pot Italian Beef:

There are several steps, but none of them are complicated because I do not like complicated!! Cut your boneless, beef chuck into 4 equal sized pieces. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder,  onion powder, and Italian seasoning…..

Turn on your pressure cooker and push the Saute button. When the liner is hot, add the olive oil and swirl around the bottom to evenly coat. Sear the meat on all sides until browned…..

I did mine two at a time so they would not be overcrowded.

Once browned, remove from pressure cooker and place on a plate. Press the Cancel button and pour the beef stock and fish sauce into the liner. Use a wooden spoon to scrape all of the cooked bits off the bottom…..

Set aside and keep warm.

When the pressure cooker beeps, allow to naturally release the pressure for 15 minutes then press the valve open to release the remaining pressure.

Lightly separate the meat, or shred if desired retaining all of the juices…..

To the make Italian Beef Sandwiches:

Slice the roll in half without cutting all the way through. Place your beef on the roll, top with pepperoncini peppers and ladle the hot juices over the top. Don’t forget the napkins!! If you’re feeling really crazy, top with provolone cheese!

Recipe Notes:

  • The original Italian Beef would be cooked with wine or beer. To keep this version whole 30 I substituted the fish sauce. No, it does not taste fishy…but you will get a blast of fishy smell when you add it to the hot pan!
  • I use this awesome Instant Pot for all of my recipes. {affiliate link}

OMG, this Instant Pot Italian Beef has soooo much flavor!! This sandwich tastes a lot like a French Dip, which is one of my favorite sandwiches so I was really excited about that.
