Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 5 mins


  • 3 pounds grass-fed chuck roast fat cut off and cut into large chunks
  • 1 large onion, peeled and sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 4oz can of green chilis
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons pepper
  • 3 dried chipotle peppers stems removed and broken into pieces
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 3 tablespoons coconut vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot and stir.
  • Place lid on, make sure vent is closed, and hit the “manual” button. Increase time to 60 minutes.
  • Once done, let naturally release or press “cancel” and release the pressure.
  • Remove lid, shred with a fork, and hit the “sauté” button. Stir regularly as the juices reduce. This may take up to 20-30 minutes to fully reduce.


*To make low FODMAP, use 1/2 cup green onions in place of the onion. 2 tablespoons of garlic oil in place of the garlic cloves. Follow the rest of the instructions as written.
