  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  2. If need cut the beef in two and brown it in batches, so it fits in the pot. Cook each piece on EACH side for full 5 minutes without turning, until its nice golden brown.
  3. If needed, add a bit more oil to the pot when searing the rest of the pieces.
  4. Remove browned beef to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. Once all the beef has been browned and set aside its time to deglaze the pot.
  6. Add the 1/2 cup of water to the pot and using a wooden spoon scrape the bits and pieces that stuck to the bottom and sides of the pot until its cleared.

  4. Cooking: if you have a pot roast that has been cut into pieces, and the pieces are no more than 2 inches thick, cook for 75 minutes on High Pressure. If the beef is thicker than 2 inches, mine was 4 inches at center, cook for 100 minutes.
  5. Once the Instant Pot beeps, do a 15 Minute Natural Pressure Release. Release manually the remaining pressure.
  6. Open the lid and check if the beef is tender enough to shred. If its not, cook for another 15-20 minutes on HP with a 15 min NPR.
