Deglaze Your Instant Pot

This recipe requires you “deglaze your pot” which simply means to pour liquid into the pot to help loosen the burned, tasty bits left over that can add depth and extra flavor to your broth. To do this, simply use the cooking vinegar to remove any excess burnt spices and oil from the bottom of your instant pot after searing your meat to prevent a burn error code. After searing the meat, turn off your pot and add the vinegar. Let cook 30-60 seconds in the hot pot before adding the water or broth and scraping the bottom of the pot with a flat wooden spatula.

Instant Pot--I have the 8 quart and I love it! I use it regularly to cook meat, soups, boil eggs, make rice, etc.!

I even have a blog post about why you need one of these handy kitchen appliances in your life! You can read all about it here!

Storing & Reheating

You can store your Meal Prep Shredded Beef in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze it to use at another time if you need to.

When you’re ready to use your shredded beef again, you can pop it in the microwave or I prefer to put it in a pan with a little bit of water or beef broth and warm it up that way!

  • 1 cup beef broth, or water


  • Dice up the roast into 1 & 1/2″ chunks. Coat pieces with the oil.

  • Heat up a pan or Instant Pot (sauté mode). Begin searing the meat on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan or pot and set aside. Deglaze the pan or pot with the vinegar. Add the broth and make sure nothing is left stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add all the meat back into the Instant Pot or in a slow cooker along with the broth. Pressure cook on high 40 minutes and quick or naturally release the pressure when finished. If using a slow cooker, cook on low 6-8 hours.

    I wish I would’ve tried this recipe sooner. It’s a 10 out of 10. I did it in the instant pot and it will definitely be on repeat. My whole family loved it.
