Recipe: Pressure Cooker BBQ Shredded Beef
I had a pound of chuck roast thawed. I had no idea what to do with it. When I got home, I decided to whip out the trusty pressure cooker. BBQ Shredded beef? That would be a perfect thing to do with a pound of beef.
I served this on tostadas (pan fried corn tortillas, not the baked kind I've made before). With some cheese and sour cream, they were totally delicious.
You could do this in a slow cooker, too. Just let the meat cook all day and shred up at the end. There was lots of extra sauce, and I'm not sure what to do with it, but I think the amount was needed to get the meat really shred-ready.
Pressure Cooker BBQ Shredded Beef
1 lb chuck roast
1 c barbecue sauce of your choice
1 c Dr. Pepper (I used Sodastream Diet Pete's Choice - essentially the same thing)
Combine the beef, bbq sauce, and soda in a pressure cooker.
Cook at high pressure for 40 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick release the rest of the pressure.
Shred with two forks and enjoy!
