Large cuts of meat are perfect for low and slow cooking resulting in melt-in-your-mouth-tenderness. If you have a well stocked pantry, you won't need to break the bank buying a ton of ingredients either for this flavorful succulent meat.
3-4 lbsbeef roasting jointarm roast, chuck roast, etc.
2medonionssliced into half moons
⅓ cuplime juice
1Tbsp kosher salt
1tsp ground black pepper
Place your hunk of beef into cooking implement, which may be a crock pot, manual pressure cooker, or Instant Pot. Cover with sliced onions and minced garlic.
In a small bowl, mix together lime juice, tomato paste, broth and all spices and pour over meat.
Place lid on IP and select meat setting dialed up to 45 min. Alternatively, slow cook on high for 6-8 hrs or low 10-12 hrs. Allow pressure to release naturally and keep on warm for as long as necessary until eating.
Note: I pressure cooked this in the morning and allowed it to sit on warm in the IP all day, which may have contributed to its juicy amazingness!
This meat is a crowd pleaser and perfect for a taco bar. It's not spicy but is well balanced and spiced. Sweet flavored fix-ins bring out the smokey flavors, so think mango or pineapple salsa.
