  • 2 pounds – Beef of choice
  • 2 cps – Water
  • 4 cps – Finely shredded Cabbage (the secret ingredient and you’ll never know it’s in there.)
  • 1/2 cp – Of your favorite BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cp – Ketchup
  • 1/3 cp – Worecestershire Sauce
  • 1 tbls – Horse Radish
  • 1 tbls – mustard


  1. Add and stir in ingredients to your Instant Pot and set it on the “Meat” setting. (35 minutes)
  2. Once done, let set until steam subsides and then take off the lid.
  3. Pull out the Beef and fork shred it. Return it to the sauce and simmer until it cooks down. Do this on the “Saute” setting.

I make a steamed Bread in my Instant Pot in coffee cans. I mount the Pulled BBQ Beef atop the bread along with Swiss or Cheddar Cheeses and grilled caramelized Sweet Vidalia Onions or fried Onion Ring.

    Can I use pork instead of beef? Will this result the same?

    Love brisket repices. I make mine a day ahead. After it’s been in the fridge, so much easier to slice or cut into chunks. Can’t wait to try yours…life the seasonings!

    I am not sure I understand the bread part. Is this dough? Or just a loaf of bread.

    Pamie has posted a separate recipe for steamed bread, made in a coffee can inside the Instant Pot. The Pulled BBQ Beef recipe just makes the beef and we can serve it on the bread of our choice. Hope this helps.
