Today I am excited to share with you another family favorite recipe!
Smothered Beef Burritos now converted to the Instant Pot!
I’ve been really trying to convert some of our old crock pot recipes to be prepared in the Instant Pot. We have a lot of crock pot recipes, I use to grab my crock pot 2-3 times a week. and Now thanks to the Instant Pot I haven’t touched a crock pot in about a year and a half!
So, we have really been missing this Smothered Beef burritos recipe and I’m so excited that it is now ready in under 30 minutes instead of 4-6 hours!!!
So here’s what I did!
Select the Saute feature on the Instant Pot (Today I am using my 8 qrt duo)
After it heats a minute or two add the oil and the beef and stir it around.
Allow the beef to brown on all sides, stirring frequently. You aren’t really cooking it, just browning the outside.
It is really important to scrape up any bits that are stuck on the bottom of the pot. Leaving them when you pressure cook could result in a “burn” notice.
Once browned and bits are scraped off add your beef bullion and enchilada sauce. give it a stir and place the lid on.
Make sure valve is set to Seal and cancel the Saute function, select pressure cook and adjust timing to 12 minutes.
This came to pressure rather quickly, since the pot was already hot. (under 10 minutes)
Meanwhile, heat up your refried beans, in the microwave or a saucepan on the stove.
Allow the Instant Pot to Naturally Release Pressure for 5-10 minutes then open the valve to release remaining pressure.
Lay out your tortillas, place a spoonful of beans in each one and then spoon some meat on top, roll up the tortilla.
Pour sauce over the rolled up burritos and top with cheese.
We enjoy these with a dollop of sour cream and tortilla chips to dip in the saucy goodness!
I hope you enjoy this yummy meal! I know Ryan and I are very excited to have this available again!
