Instant Pot Garlic Pepperoncini Beef is a recipe I recently developed after re-making a favorite slow-cooker recipe. You are going to love not too spicy beef with just the right touch of garlic.
This recipe was originally found on my message board, CopyKatChat.com. The original recipe was originally for the slow cooker, I will include those directions down below.
This recipe is super simple, you will need a roast, I used a top round roast, but this would well with a chuck roast, sirloin roast, or eye of round. Honestly, thanks to the Instant Pot, any type of roast will work. You will need some fresh garlic and pepperoncini peppers. The peppers aren’t too hot, but they add a wonderful tang to the beef.
I start by sauteeing the beef in a bit of vegetable oil, and they on I simply add in the garlic, chicken stock, and pepperoncini peppers. Yes, I did say chicken stock. I like the way chicken stock compliments the flavor of the beef. You may want to consider using a low sodium version of the stock, you can even use a no salt version as well.
This recipe calls for cooking the roast on the manual setting. The manual setting uses high pressure. I like to use the manual setting because I feel like I have more control on the pot than using the manual setting when it comes to a roast. I do use their suggested settings for rice, steaming, and many of the other functions on the pot.
Modification for slow cooker
Saute roast in a pan, and transfer it to the slow cooker. Add garlic, peppers, and chicken stock. Cook on low for about 6 – 7 hours.
I have a couple of serving suggestions for this beef, you can enjoy it as a pot roast. Or you may want to slice it and use it for sandwiches. I served up mine on toasted onion buns with provolone cheese.
