Pressure Cooker Shredded Beef And Cheddar Appetizers

Shredded Beef is a dish that many people enjoy. Unfortunately, shredded beef is frequently served as a sandwich, which isn’t always the simplest thing to serve at a gathering. It can get messy and complicated. I have a solution for that – Shredded Beef and Cheddar Appetizers!

Pressure Cooker Shredded Beef And Cheddar Appetizers are perfect for snacking, as well as for entertaining a gathering. This appetizer recipe is super easy to make and is ready to serve in under an hour.

Here’s how I make Pressure Cooker Shredded Beef And Cheddar Appetizers.

Equipment Needed

Ingredients

  • 3 lb beef chuck roast
  • 1x 28 oz bottle BBQ sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Original)
  • 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2-4 sleeves of crackers (I use Ritz)
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water

Pressure Cooker Shredded Beef And Cheddar Appetizers Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Instructions

Plug in the electric pressure cooker.

Set the pressure cooker to the saute or brown setting.

Place a light coating of olive oil in the bottom of the pot.

Place the roast into the pot and sear all sides until they are lightly browned.

Once the beef has browned, remove it from the pot and set aside. (I use a cooking fork and a silicone spatula to to this, the fork gives me something to hold on to and the spatula slides underneath and gives some support. I have tried this with 2 forks and it only ripped the meat, causing it to fall back into the pot.)

Add a half of a cup of water to the pot. Use the spatula to loosen any bits of meat that are stuck to the bottom.

Return the roast to the pot and cover it with half of the BBQ sauce.

Cook on manual high pressure for 1 hour.

At some point while the roast is cooking you can prepare the crackers. Place a bunch of them on a platter, laid out individually and not in stacks.

Once the cooking time has finished, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then do a quick pressure release.

Remove the roast from the pot again and set aside.

Drain any liquid that remains in the bottom of the pot.

Return the roast to the pot.

Use a hand mixer to shred the meat. You can also do this with 2 forks but I find using the hand mixer faster and less tiring for my hands.

Add the other half of the bottle of BBQ sauce to the pot and stir well.

Use a tablespoon or small measuring cup to scoop out the shredded beef and place it onto the top of a cracker.

Repeat until you’ve got as many crackers as you want ready or until you’ve run out of meat. This batch should easily be enough for 2-4 sleeves of crackers, depending on how much meat you’re putting on each cracker.

Take the shredded cheddar cheese and gently sprinkle it across all of the crackers.

Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
