What type of Beef should I go for?
For this Italian Beef recipe, you will be using a chuck roast.
To make sure that you get really tender beef all the way through you will want to cut your roast in 2 to 3 large pieces.
I also recommend cutting away any really large chunks of white fat.
What can I use as a substitute for the beef broth?
If you don’t have beef broth or want to use something different you can reach for beef bone broth or vegetable broth.
This Instant Pot Italian Beef recipe can also work with beef bouillon cubes.
What to do with the leftovers?
Leftover Italian Beef can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or frozen in the leftover juices for up to 3 months.
How to serve?
