Instant Pot Ropa Vieja | Instant Pot Recipes | Cuban Recipes | Chef Zee Cooks

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Ropa Vieja is one of my all time favorite Cuban Recipes and whenever I’m in a rush, I love making this dish in an Instant Pot or pressure cooker because it comes together so quickly! This Instant Ropa Vieja Shredded Beef Recipe is super versatile and pairs nicely with so many of your favorite side dishes. You can make this for taco night, Cuban night, or keep it light and have it with veggies. These one pot meals are great for families and working moms.
