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.

Prepare the onions, jalapeno, ginger, and garlic. It’s always easier prepping the ingredients ahead of time so you save some time.

cola-pulled-beef-roast

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.
