Enjoy restaurant-quality Instant Pot Barbacoa anytime you like with this simple Chipotle copycat recipe! Beef chuck roast is pressure cooked in a flavorful chipotle sauce until tender enough to fall apart.
Add 1 tablespoon oil to a 6-quart Instant Pot set to the sauté function. Add beef and sprinkle on salt and black pepper. Sear on all sides for a total of 4-5 minutes. You may have to do this in two batches if all of the meat does not fit in a single layer.
Add the blended chipotle sauce and can of diced chiles to the pot. Stir to combine and then add beef back in, making sure to submerge the it in the sauce. Place the bay leaves on top of the meat.
Serve barbacoa immediately in a toasted tortilla or over rice with sliced red onion, avocado, cilantro, and queso fresco. Enjoy!
