I’ve recently jumped on to the Instant Pot bandwagon and my life has never been the same!  Instant Pots are basically crockpots on steroids, at least that’s how I’d describe them.  The can do just about everything a crockpot can do only they do it faster!  Because Instant Pot uses pressure to cook food instead of constant slow heat like a crockpot meals can be made not only faster but better tasting because they get tender but don’t get mushy like veggies do when cooked in a crockpot.  That’s why making this Instant Pot Shredded Beef is the perfect way to make fillings for tacos, chimichangas, burritos, and more.

Today I’m going to share with you my recipe for Instant Pot Shredded Beef Flautas.  Actually it’s basic shredded beef with Mexican spices which I’m using to fill flour tortillas which I then deep fry.  That’s what a Flauta is a rolled and fried four tortilla, some folks call them taquitos, but what ever you call them they’re yummy just the same.

You can use this Instant Pot Shredded Beef to fill just about anything you need to fill with shredded beef; like burritos, chimichangas, enchaladas, empanadas, and more.

Instant pot shredded beefI’ve always used skirt or flank steaks to make shredded beef, they turn out pretty tender making them pretty easy to shred.  But once I started making this Instant Pot Shredded Beef the shredding is even easier, the meat literally just falls apart!

I’m sure you’ll love this recipe so make plenty.  I usually freeze extras so that I can use them later for burritos, chimichangas or whatever.  If you’re going to freeze it be sure you use freeze safe containers and label them.  Because it’s shredded the beef will last in the freezer for about a month so be sure you use it soon!
