Instant Pot French Dip

  • 3 pounds boneless chuck roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large yellow onions sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 (12 oz) bottle beer
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (1 oz) packet onion soup mix

For Serving

  • 2 (12 oz) baguettes sliced to make 8 sandwiches or use 8 French Rolls instead
  • 8 slices provolone cheese


  • Season both sides of the chuck roast with salt and pepper, then set aside.
  • Hit SAUTE on 6 quart Instant Pot.
  • Once it reads HOT, add in olive oil, then chuck roast.
  • Brown each side for 5 minutes, or until golden brown, then remove and set aside.
  • Add in onion and sauté for 5 minutes stirring regularly; add garlic in the last 30 seconds.
  • Hit CANCEL on the Instant Pot.
  • Add beer to deglaze - be sure to scrape all the brown bits off the bottom. This avoids a BURN notice on the IP.
  • Add seared roast back in.
  • Stir in broth, soy sauce, fish sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and onion soup mix.
  • Cook on HIGH pressure for 50 minutes.
  • Allow a natural release for 30 minutes, then flip the pressure valve to release any remaining pressure.
  • Remove beef and shred or slice, then stir back into sauce.
  • Hit SAUTE on the Instant Pot to bring the mixture to a simmer, then simmer sauce for 10 minutes or until thickened to your liking. Taste and re-season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
  • Assemble the sandwiches: cut the baguettes slices or rolls in half, place both halves onto a baking sheet, top the bottom half with desired amount of meat, then cheese.
 Broil until cheese is melted and the top bun is toasted.
  • Serve with sauce for dunking and enjoy!
