M got me an Instant Pot for Christmas and I was itching to slow cook something. Mags told me to slow cook beef with a can of Coca-Cola, so I really wanted to give it a try. The secret to tender meat is cooking it at a low temperature for a long period of time.
- 2 pounds beef roast
- 1 cup of Coca-Cola
- 1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled
- 1 garlic, peeled
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- 1 cup of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
- a splash of fish sauce
Prepare the onions, jalapeno, ginger, and garlic. It’s always easier prepping the ingredients ahead of time so you save some time.
Take your beef roast and sear all sides by browning it. You can either turn on the Saute function of the Instant Pot to do this or brown it on a frying pan.
It will only take a minute or so to brown each side.
Once it is down browning, add in the onion, garlic, jalapeno, ginger, soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar.
Don’t forget the Coca-Cola.
Turn the slow cooker on for 8 hours and let it do it’s thing.
Once the beef roast is done, it will be tender and falling apart.
You can eat it for dinner or eat it as a breakfast. I paired it with scrambled eggs. Tons of protein for breakfast!
