What is the best meat to cook in an instant pot?

Any meat is delicious in the instant pot. Pressure cooking is a great way to use inexpensive cuts of meat because the instant pot will make everything so tender and amazing.

So, think about the cuts of meat that you might normally stray away from. Use those in the instant pot because they will turn out amazing and save you  money.

You can use flank steak or skirt steak and both will turn out great. I often use what I have on hand or is on sale at the grocery store.

By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget. Saving money and feeding a big family can be accomplished.

  1. I do not have an instant pot but this recipe sounds good and I would like to try it. Is it possible to make it in a crock pot and how would I go about it. Thanks

  2. You can definitely add in broccoli with the other veggies as well. I would only cook on high pressure for 2-3 minutes with the broccoli in there so that it doesn’t get over cooked. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. If using frozen beef strips. I would cook on high pressure for 15 minutes with a quick release. However, this will make the bell peppers too soft so I would wait to add those in. Then after the cook time, I would switch the instant pot to the sauté setting, add in the bell peppers and cook for 3-5 minutes until the peppers were tender. Let me know how it turns out!
