Instant Pot Shredded Beef
What’s your freezer like? Here at the Milners we have a large chest freezer that is often full of lots of different cuts of meat.
I have meat portioned up ready for cooking from frozen in the instant pot and air fryer, as well as other meats that I thaw before cooking.
As I type this my freezer meat includes:
- Chicken – legs, breast, thighs, wings
- Lamb – mince, cubes,
- Beef – tongue, shin, oxtails, stewing meat, cubes,
- Turkey – whole, breast, crown, legs,
- Pork – tenderloin, cubes, shoulder,
I also have other meats in there too, but I can’t remember them all without sorting through the freezer.
Many of the meat I have in the freezer has been bought when its in season or on a deal. That way I can save it for later and reduce our grocery shopping bill.
One of those meats that I have that I buy in bulk is a cubed beef from Lidl.
They call it beef fondue as it is perfect for serving in a beef fondue at Christmas and New Year and I will buy as many packs as they have, then I have a good freezer supply.
I love the fondue beef because it is cubed beef that can be used on kebabs, shredded beef, stews, casseroles and soups.
But I love it best shredded in the instant pot like I am showing you today.
You can use supplies from your pantry to add to your instant pot shredded beef and you have a quick round of beef that is perfect for tacos, enchiladas, burritos and other favourite recipes.
Just like today I am using tinned tomatoes and salsa to make a batch of Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Beef.
Can I Cook Frozen Meat In My Instant Pot?
Yes you can! Frozen meat in your instant pot is amazing and each time I cook a new type of frozen meat in the instant pot I am amazed by how good it tastes.
Though so far, my true favourite is instant pot frozen steak. The steak tastes better than a fresh steak tastes pan fried, and I just want to binge on it.
If you have not read it before I recommend you read how to cook frozen meat in the instant pot.

But you can also take a better cut of beef and when it has been pressure cooked it will taste as good as beef fillet.
Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Beef
One of my favourite types is to make Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Beef. You can load up the instant pot with your favourite frozen beef, salsa, more Mexican seasonings and tinned tomatoes.
Then if you want it spicier then increase the seasoning and heat hit.
So easy and then your Mexican shredded beef can be used for beef tacos, beef enchiladas and even a Mexican salad.

Instant Pot Shredded Beef With Salsa
The easiest way to make shredded beef in the instant pot is with salsa. You can throw it into the instant pot like you do with tinned tomatoes and if you want it spicy swap tinned tomatoes for more salsa.
Instant Pot Shredded Beef Cook Time
The Instant Pot Shredded Beef Cook Time is one hour. The beef will be cooked much quicker than this, but keeping it on for this long guarantees that it shreds well and that it is perfect tender beef.
