If you like Chicago Style Italian Beef you are going to fall in LOVE with Easy Instant Pot Italian Beef! With just a few ingredients, it cooks quickly in your pressure cooker and makes the BEST dipping broth.


  • 3 pounds beef chuck roast, cut into chunks
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 packets Italian Dressing (dry mix)
  • Jar of your favorite giardiniera
  • Optional – rolls for sandwiches and/or sliced provolone cheese


  1. Begin by placing the beef chunks into your Instant Pot and pouring 1/4 cup of the giardiniera brine over the beef.
  2. Next, mix the beef broth and Italian Dressing packets together in a medium-sized saucepan. Cook on high heat until the broth begins to boil, then turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Pour the broth mixture over the beef chunks.
  4. Set your Instant Pot on high pressure and set the cook time to 60 minutes.
  5. When the cook time is done, allow the pressure cooker to perform a natural release for about 15 minutes. (After 15 minutes, you can manually release any remaining pressure.)
  6. Shred the beef, saving the broth in your Instant Pot.
  7. When serving, top the Italian Beef with giardiniera. If making sandwiches, you can also add provolone cheese and serve with a side of the broth for dipping. (I personally forgo the cheese and add a large dollop of yellow mustard to my sandwich, and then dunk it in the amazing broth dipping sauce!)
