PIN IT FOR LATER!

I’ve been blogging for a long time. Over 10 years, in fact. So in the blogging world, I’m really old. In those 10 years, I’ve never felt like I’ve had a shortage of ideas or recipes to post about. In fact, I often feel like I just can’t keep up with all of the recipes I want to try.

SEE HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE THIS INSTANT POT BARBACOA BEEF!

So what are the chances that I’d make a recipe that is really similar to another recipe I already have on the blog, and not even realize it until pictures are taken and a video is filmed. Oops. Apparently, this is becoming a regular thing for me, because this isn’t the first time this has happened. In 2012, I posted a recipe for Reuben Dogs, then in 2014, I did a Pastrami Wrapped Hot Dog Recipe that was really similar. I guess I know what I like and I’m not afraid to admit it! 😜

In my defense, this Instant Pot Barbacoa Beef does taste different from the Chipotle Shredded Beef I posted last July. The ingredients are similar, but I’m surprised how different the 2 recipes actually taste. This Instant Pot Barbacoa Beef is a bit spicier and the seasonings seemed to come through a bit stronger for me. It is bold and flavorful and so perfect for tacos, burritos, enchiladas – you name it!!

I have made this recipe in the oven, and it turned out great as well. But I love the time saver that the Instant Pot is. I’m sure you could probably do this in the slow cooker as well, but I prefer the Instant Pot to the slow cooker. It’s definitely time to call it a Taco Tuesday with this Instant Pot Barbacoa Beef!

Don’t quit there – here are more beef recipes that make perfect fillings for tacos, burritos, enchiladas and quesadillas!
