Step-by-Step Instant Pot Italian Beef Cooking Guide

Here are the ingredients for Instant Pot Italian Beef Recipe.

Italian Beef Ingredients

Add 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes if you want it to be slightly spicy.

*Note: If you don’t want to use fish sauce, you can substitute it with another tablespoon of regular soy sauce. 🙂

Brown Chuck Roast Steak


Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More function.

*Tip: For older version, press “Saute” button, then “Adjust” button. For newer versions, press “Saute” button twice.

Saute More Function

Wait until it says HOT (takes roughly 8 minutes).

*Pro Tip: 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 and black pepper.

Drizzle the inner pot with 1 tbsp olive oil. Then, place the seasoned side of the chuck roast steak in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
