Asada Style Meats in an Instant Pot

  1. Remove Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada from package, lay in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  2. Add water or other liquid* to just cover meat.
  3. Close and lock lid. Select “Pressure Cook” or “Manual.” Use + or – button to set timer. Cook on high pressure level for 15 minutes per pound of meat.
  4. When timed cooking is completed, open the pressure cooker using the “Quick Release” (see instructions for your Instant Pot brand).
  5. Remove from Instant Pot, place on a cutting board, cover loosely with foil and let the Carne Asada rest for a minimum of 3 minutes.
  6. Slice against the grain for maximum tenderness.

Optional:  Filter the cooking liquid through a fine sieve, add a pat of butter, stir and drizzle over the meat.

* Other liquid: use broth or marinade mixture of ¼ cup lime juice, 8 cloves crushed garlic, ½ cup orange juice, 1/2 cup fresh minced cilantro, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, ½ cup olive oil, 1 minced jalapeño, and 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar.

You may not achieve desired results due to these variables, therefore, while care has been taken to provide accurate cooking guidelines users are advised to use their discretion.
