Nothing easier than Shredded Beef in your Instant Pot! This Paleo, AIP and Whole30 recipe features well-seasoned beef and an easy button. That’s it! Serve it on salad, cauliflower rice, for taco night or throw it in a veggie soup!
Can’t stop Instant Potting. It is my life. Well, not my life, since it takes up a marginal portion of it, but it saves my life. I got a beautiful pastured grass fed chuck roast the other day. It was almost too pretty to turn into a pile of shredded brown meat, but I pulled through and did it.
This is a heavily spiced recipe and not shy on flavor. If you aren’t a giant fan of cloves, you can cut those down to 3 but don’t leave them out completely. I served this two ways. For me, over cauliflower rice with cucumber-avocado salsa, and diced mangos with lime juice. For my husband, over tortilla chips with the same salsa and extra avocado. It really works for any season of the year even though it uses a hefty dose of Caribbean-inspired spices. Just switch up the sides!
It’s not organic, so take your “risks” there, but it’s super delicious and makes a really easy side. We honestly can’t afford to buy 100% organic vegetables 100% of the time, so I do my best t buy 75% organic for the things that matter most to me and then the rest (bananas, avocados, mangos, oranges) I don’t worry about so much. Simply spiced but full of flavor! No nightshades here which makes this easy, anti-inflammatory shredded beef an easy choice for a weeknight AIP meal!
