Instructions
 

MAKE CHIPOTLE SAUCE

  • Add all chipotle sauce ingredients to a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Set aside.

MAKE BEEF BARBACOA

  • Trim visible large sections of fat from roast, then cut roast into 6-8 large pieces. Season beef with 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper.
  • Add vegetable oil to Instant Pot and select "Saute". When hot, add beef and cook for a minute or so on each side, until browned. Depending on the size of your beef, you may need to do this in batches.
  • Remove browned beef to a plate and add onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes, until soft.
  • Add in 1 cup beef broth and scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to remove any browned bits. Add in tomato paste, green chiles and bay leaves.
  • Press "Cancel - or Keep Warm/Cancel". Return browned beef to the pot and pour pureed chipotle sauce over the top. Top with both halves of the lime.
  • Close lid securely and make sure the valve is set to "sealing". Select "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" and adjust the +/- button until it reads 60 minutes.
  • When finished cooking, carefully turn the valve to "venting" for a quick pressure release. When the steam has all escaped, and the pin has dropped, remove the lid and discard bay leaves.
  • Remove beef pieces to a large bowl and shred, discarding any purely fat parts.
  • Toss shredded beef with as much of the cooking liquid as you'd like.

TO THICKEN SAUCE

  • In a small bowl, stir together 2 Tbsp cornstarch with 3 Tbsp water until smooth. Pour this mixture into the pot with the sauce and select "saute".
  • Cook for several minutes, stirring often, until thickened to your tastes.
  • Toss shredded beef with as much of the thickened sauce as you'd like.

TO CRISP THE EDGES

  • Line a baking sheet with foil, and preheat broiler to high, adjusting oven rack to the upper third position.
  • Spread shredded beef into an even layer, then broil several minutes. Stir. Continue broiling and stirring until crisped and charred to your liking.

SLOW COOKER INSTRUCTIONS

  • Process sauce ingredients.
  • Sear beef in a skillet on the stove.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to slow cooker, top with seared beef, top with chipotle sauce.

Notes

Notes
some readers have noticed a bitter taste when pressure cooking with the lime halves in the pressure cooker. I have never had a problem with it, but if you're worried, feel free to remove the lime halves before pressure cooking!
