Brown Chuck Roast Steak: Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More function. Wait until it says HOT (~8 mins) -you really want the Instant Pot to be as hot as it can be for the maillard reaction.
Pat dry the chuck roast steak and lightly season one side with salt + black pepper. Drizzle the inner pot with 1 tbsp olive oil. Then, place the seasoned side of the chuck roast steak in Instant Pot. Lightly season the other side with more salt + black pepper.
*Pro Tip: brown each side for 10 minutes to develop some awesome deep flavors.
*Note: If you prefer a "Dump-it-all-in" Recipe, you can skip the browning and saute steps.
Saute Onion and Herbs: Set browned chuck roast steak aside. If you want to serve the Italian Beef Sandwich with sauteed green bell pepper, saute then set them aside. Add in sliced onions, saute until softened (~3 - 4 mins). Add in 1 tsp (1g) dried oregano, 1 tsp (1.2g) dried basil. If you prefer slightly spicy Italian Beef, add 1 tsp red pepper flakes. Saute for another minute.
Deglaze Instant Pot: Pour 1 cup unsalted stock in Instant Pot, then deglaze by scrubbing all the flavorful brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.
Pressure Cook Chuck Roast: Add in 1 tsp (3.5g) onion powder, 2 tsp (9g) garlic powder, 1 tbsp (15ml) soy sauce, 1 tbsp (15ml) fish sauce, and 1 tbsp (15ml) Worcestershire sauce. Give it a quick mix. Place browned chuck roast steak back in Instant Pot and partially submerge it into the liquid as best as you can. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 45 minutes + 25 minutes Natural Release.
Simmer Gravy & Shred Beef: Set aside chuck roast steak in a mixing bowl, then shred the meat with 2 forks. While you are shredding the meat, bring gravy back to a boil with the "Saute" function. *Pro Tip: Reducing the gravy will naturally thicken it. If you find the gravy to be too oily, you can use a Fat Separator to filter out the fat.
Adjust Seasoning & Serve Instant Pot Italian Beef: Place the beef back in the yummy beefy gravy. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Serve Italian Beef on Italian rolls. Optional: Garnish with giardiniera and sauteed green bell pepper. Enjoy~ 🙂
