Instant Pot French Dip Sandwiches

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 8


  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • Close and lock the lid and make sure the vent on top is closed.
  • Cancel "Sauté" button and press the "Meat/Stew" button, adjusting the time to 45 minutes.
  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • 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!
