Instant Pot Shredded Beef Taco Recipe

When we first started RVing, I was very unsure of how I was going to feed my family of five in the tiny RV kitchen I had in our travel trailer. The oven and microwave were very small and the amount of counter space I had was just about non-existent. 

But it didn’t take me long to figure out that a) I could most definitely whip up delicious meals my family would love in our RV and b) that my Instant Pot would become my best friend.

Although I stayed away from the Instant Pot craze for as long as I could, once I got over my uncertainty of using it, I quickly realized what an asset it is to cooking in an RV and doing it well. In fact, it made it into my top 7 RV kitchen essentials and continues to be a favorite.

What Makes These Instant Pot Shredded Beef Tacos RV-Friendly?

What is is about this taco recipe that makes it so RV-friendly? Other than the fact that it’s made in the Instant Pot, here are a few other reasons why I love making this on RV trips:

  • It can feed a crowd
  • It’s a very versatile recipe; you can easily turn this into Shredded Beef Sandwiches for a crowd
  • It requires easy to find ingredients
  • It requires few ingredients, most of which are spices
  • It’s easy to set up to serve with minimal counter space

If you’re tired of the same ‘ol food you make on your RV trips, like hot dogs and hamburgers, etc; I highly recommend adding this taco recipe into your RV meal planning.

How to Make Instant Pot Shredded Beef Tacos

The hardest parts of this recipe are cutting the meat into 2-in chunks and shredding it when it’s done. So, easy peasy. 

Here’s how to make the tacos:

  1. In a  bowl, combine meat chunks and seasonings (garlic powder, chili powder, coarse salt, cumin, and oregano); toss to coat meat thoroughly; set aside
  2. Set Instant Pot to saute and add 2 Tbsp oil. Once the oil is heated, add the diced onion
  3. Saute onions until soft, about 2 to 3 minutes
  4. After onions are sauteed, add seasoned chuck roast chunks* to Instant Pot
  5. Add beef broth
  6. Manually set Instant Pot to 50 minutes
  7. After the timer goes off, do a quick release and transfer beef to a plate or cutting board with a slotted spoon
  8. Shred beef with two forks and return to Instant Pot
  9. Add the juice of one lime to shredded meat and stir
  10. Heat corn tortillas and top tortillas with shredded beef, diced red onions (optional) and cilantro (optional).
  11. Serve with lime slices for additional lime flavor.

*Notes: I have prepared this recipe two ways: by searing the meat in oil in the Instant Pot and by not searing it. In my opinion, taking the extra step to sear the meat did not make a difference. But, if you want to take this step, heat up the oil in the Instant Pot, sear the diced meat, remove the meat, add a bit more oil and then saute the onions. Continue with the rest of the steps.

*While the meat is cooking in the Instant Pot, I take this time to heat up the corn tortillas, dice the red onions, chop the cilantro and get everything set up to serve dinner. 50 minutes might even be enough time for you to tidy up the RV. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I truly hope you enjoy these shredded beef tacos as much as my family and I do!
