  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

  • Set Instant Pot to sauté mode. While waiting for pot to heat, rub roast with taco seasoning. 
  • When display reads hot, add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place the roast in the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes on both sides to sear.
  • Remove roast from pot and set aside. Add the beef broth to the pot to deglaze, scraping until all brown pieces are loosened. Return the roast to the pot and cancel sauté mode.
