  • 2 lb (1 kg) meat
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 3 garlic minced
  • 2 cups vegetable or beef broth
  • 4 potatoes cut into large cubes
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • ⅓ cup cup water

  • Place the stainless steel inner pot inside the Instant Pot®. Press Saute and set time to 15 Minutes. Add the olive oil and wait about a minute until it is hot. Put in the pieces of meat and leave 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Then, without canceling, remove from the Instant Pot®.
  • Add the onion and stir for 3-4 minutes until browned. Then add the garlic, sauté 1 more minute, and add the broth. Stir the bottom with a wooden spoon until everything that is stuck to the bottom is removed, then press Cancel.
  • Add the pieces of meat to the bowl with the raw potatoes on top and then close and lock the lInstant Pot® lid. Make sure the steam release handle is turned to Sealing. Press Pressure Cook, pressure level High, and set time to 40 Minutes.
  • When done cooking, press Cancel and then turn the steam release handle to Venting. Once all the steam has been released, open the lid.
  • Remove the potatoes and onions and set aside. Then remove the meat and shred with two forks.
