Preparation 15 mins Cook Time 45 mins Total Time 1 hr
Serves 8     adjust servings



  • 3 lbs beef roast, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp oil, divided (olive, vegetable, canola, etc.)
  • 4 tsp low-sodium steak seasoning, divided
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • sub rolls
  • provolone cheese slices


  1. Slice onion and cube meat. Heat instant pot to hot on "Sauté" option. Place 1 Tbsp of oil in the hot pot. Add onions and 2 tsp of steak seasoning. Cook until starting to brown/caramelize, stirring occasionally. Remove onions with a spoon. Set aside.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp of oil to the hot pot. Add cubed beef roast and 2 tsp steak seasoning. Stir just enough to sear the meat a little bit. Add onions, worcestershire sauce, and beef broth. 
  3. Close and lock the lid and make sure the vent on top is closed.
  4. Cancel "Sauté" button and press the "Meat/Stew" button, adjusting the time to 45 minutes.
  5. Let cook. Once finished, turn the vent/quick release valve to the open position until you no longer hear or see steam, and the float valve is down. 
  6. Open lid. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the meat out of the instant pot and shred with a fork. Drain the broth/au jus with a fine mesh sieve. 
  7. Toast sub rolls with butter (or garlic butter) in a large pan until golden brown. Fill with meat, and top with provolone cheese. Serve with au jus for dipping. Enjoy!
