Instant Pot French Dip

I love my Instant Pot! It speeds up weeknight meals like a dream (perfect for hockey nights) and today I’m going to share this delicious recipe for Instant Pot French Dip.

My new favorite Instant Pot recipe? French Dip! I love restaurant style beef dip, and this one that's made in the pressure cooker makes it so easy to whip up for dinner.

I have always called this meal “beef dip”. I have seen it called french dip and baron of beef, but I always call it beef dip. That being said, I’m feeling fancy today and so I’m bringing you French Dip, made in the Instant Pot.

I had my doubts that 100 minutes would leave a massive 5-6 pound roast falling apart tender, even in the Instant Pot.

I was wrong, it was perfect.

French Dip Recipe
This is perfect for those moments where you have a craving but don’t want to wait hours for beef dip from the slow cooker. I made it on a Monday, and it gave me enough meat for leftovers and separate meals for three days. This was a huge lifesaver for Tuesday hockey practice (I’m over hockey guys, so over it)  as, by the time I got home, I just used the meat to throw together some beef tacos and called it good! This was awesome since I was so tired, and didn’t feel like cooking.

Instant Pot Recipes:

TBK’s Pro Tip: I grabbed a large roast, roughly five pounds. This way I had a bunch of beef for leftovers and other meals to make my week easier.

Leftover shredded beef ideas:

  • Beef tacos
  • Beef nachos
  • Shepards Pie
  • Service with mashed potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, a side of veggies, and a quick gravy for a roast beef dinner.

Supplies used:

TBK’s Pro Tip: I have an 8 Qt Instant Pot, and fitting the 5 1/2 – 6-pound roast was iffy so I cut it in half and fit both in nicely.

Note: I recommend using half of the roast for the Instant Pot French Dip and save the rest for the leftovers listed above. Calorie information will be for (roughly) that amount (a 2 1/2 pound roast).
