Some of the tastiest dishes I’ve made are with beef. If I could make only one thing in the Instant Pot it would be my French Dip Sandwiches. Perfect, fall-apart tender roast between toasted buns and some delicious melted cheese on top.

Yes, please!

If you’re running short on time and want a quick meal for your family, there are some great options on this Big List, including my own Cheesy Beef and Bowtie Pasta and Creamy Beef and Macaroni Casserole. Both family favorites!

So if beef is what you’re looking to master in the Instant Pot, this is the list for you! From pasta and beef dishes to roasts, to soups to sandwiches, this list has it all!

Instant Pot Beef Recipes

I have divided these beef recipes into categories, so you can quickly find what you’re looking for. Enjoy!

  • Eye of Round
  • Ground Beef
  • Chilis
  • Ground Beef Soups
  • Goulash
  • Pasta and Ground Beef
  • Beef Sandwiches
  • Short Rib
  • Beef Shank
  • Beef Stews
  • Dips
  • Sauces

Eye of Round

Eye of round is a value cut of meat, is very lean, and can be very tough if not cooked just right. It’s so tough, in fact, that it’s called “Mano de Piedra” in my home country of Honduras. This translates to “Stone Hand”. I remember growing up in Honduras, it was a cut of meat used often at my house.

While it’s ideal for marinating and grilling, you can make some great dishes with it in the Instant Pot. Actually, as a tough cut of meat, Eye of Round is perfect for cooking in the pressure cooker. Like magic, the pressure cooker can turn it into a delicious and tender piece of meat.

While there’s not a huge variety of recipes for making Eye of Round in the Instant Pot, the ones that are available are definitely worth your time!

The following recipes are great for turning that Eye of Round into a delectable meal!

Ground Beef

Ground beef is probably the most common meat used in cooking, at least it is in my house. So many choices of what to make with it. We always keep ground sirloin in the fridge. It’s so easy to cook and it can be fixed in a very short amount of time.

The versatility of it is great as well. You can make everything from meatballs, to chili, to tacos, to meatloaf. The choices are endless!

So if you’re looking for something tasty to make with ground beef, this is the list for you! Choose an international dish, or go with a traditional meatloaf. Either way, these ground beef recipes are sure to be a hit!

Chilis

Nothing like a bowl of warm chili to soothe the soul! Chili is probably one of those meals that makes everyone happy when we make it at home. All the kids love it and even the little one requests it often.

My husband used to make chili on the stove and it would take hours. Recently, he came up with a quick stovetop version of his awesome chili.It is nothing short of perfection!

Now that we can use the Instant Pot to make it, though, that’s our preferred method of cooking it. It is very quick, and we can use dry beans without the added time.

So I have found several delicious Chili recipes for your Instant Pot that are sure to be a hit. I’ve listed both chilis with dry beans and chilis with canned beans. Take your pick!

Pasta and Ground Beef

This is my favorite category, the one that includes pasta!

Why?

Because as long as you have some pasta in the pantry and a pack of ground beef in the freezer, you can whip up a tasty meal in no time. I’ve found that pasta, ground beef, and the Instant Pot are the perfect combo for creating a quick and easy dinner on the fly. For that reason, I always keep pasta and ground beef on hand because, with five kids, I never know when things are going to get crazy around here.

When things get crazy or time is short then it’s time to break out the ground beef and pasta and get the kiddos fed and on their way to bed.

These are the recipes that I come to over and over when I’m in the middle of a hectic week. They’re just so quick and easy to make. Plus, the combination of pasta and ground beef is so filling. My entire family loves these recipes.
