Italian Beef Sandwiches in the Instant Pot

I’m always looking for fast and easy recipes that my family will love. In the colder fall and winter months, it’s a bonus if it’s a hearty meal that will fill us up and leave us feeling full while we’re out and about. This time of year, it seems like the hours fly by and our days fill up quickly with all of the holiday to-dos, so having a meal you can make in the instant pot – leaving less mess and easy clean-up – is of great value. Italian beef sandwiches are one of our family favorites. I especially like to make them when we’re having company over or for football Sunday because they allow me to actually watch the game or chat with my friends instead of being stuck in the kitchen cooking and cleaning up. Plus, they’re really delicious. 

Italian Beef Sandwiches in the Instant Pot

Ingredients:

  • 3-pound chuck roast
  • 1 cup beef broth (I prefer low sodium)
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt (I prefer sea salt)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried minced onions
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup sliced pepperoncini peppers with juice
  • Hoagie rolls
  • Sliced provolone cheese
  • Giardiniera pickled vegetables

Directions:

  1. Cut roast into several pieces and place in the instant pot. 
  2. Top with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onions, and Italian seasoning. 
  3. Pour the beef broth around the meat, and then top with the pepperoncini peppers. Add some of the pepper juice to the pot for added flavor.
  4. Place the lid on the instant pot, then turn to the ‘sealing’ position. Set to ‘Pressure Cook’ for 50 minutes. Keep in mind that it will take several minutes for the pot to come up to temperature, and then the 50 minute cook time will start. When it’s finished, it’ll beep – allow it to naturally release for 10-15 minutes; then, you can manually release it (be careful) to release any remaining pressure.
  5. Shred the beef. If you elect to do this on a separate plate, return it to the pot to soak up the juices ( you can serve the juice on the side if you don’t want a soaked bun). 
  6. Slice your hoagie rolls in half and place a slice of provolone on one or both sides of the roll. Place them on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven at 325 until the cheese is melted. 
  7. Add the beef to the sandwiches and top with the leftover pepperoncini and the pickled vegetables. 

If you’re looking for a great recipe that’s easy to make and are sure to please, this one is for you. You can modify the recipe for a slow cooker, but I like using the instant pot  –  just personal preference. If you don’t have an instant pot, it’s a great time to find a screaming deal on one or to request one as a gift. 

Also, when I make these sandwiches, I like to go by our local Jimmy Johns (or a comparable location) and get some of their day-old bread. They are perfect for these Italian Beef sandwiches and are really cheap. Plus, our family loves them!
