This Instant Pot Ropa Vieja is a twist on a traditional Cuban dish. Tender steak and veggies are simmered in a flavorful tomato sauce then topped with olives, pimento peppers, capers, and raisins. Serve with rice, beans, and plantain chips!
Sauté until both sides are browned, remove, set aside, and repeat with remaining steak.
Remove steak, then hit CANCEL on the Instant Pot.
Carefully pour in beef broth, scraping up anything that may have stuck to the bottom. This will help you avoid a BURN notice.
Add the steak back in, then top with onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. (It’s important to do this in the order listed, so the tomato paste and spices don’t get stuck to the bottom of the Instant Pot which will cause a BURN notice).
Close and lock the lid - make sure the pressure valve is pointed toward SEALING.
Cook on HIGH pressure for 40 minutes, then allow to naturally release for 20 minutes.
Remove the lid, transfer the steak to a cutting board, and shred with two forks.
Return the meat to the pot along with the olives, roasted peppers, raisins, capers, and vinegar.
Taste and re-season, if necessary, then serve over rice and beans with cilantro, lime, chips, and enjoy!
