It’s almost ridiculous to even make a post about this Instant Pot Korean beef because it’s so darn easy. It’s embarrassing to be honest, but the truth is, it’s delicious! It’s also super versatile so you can get creative with it.
So far, I have used this beef in rice bowls, in bao, sliders, burritos and in a grilled cheese (that one was ridiculously good).
I use an Instant Pot, but if you have another type of electric pressure cooker, that works as well!
I can usually find Korean BBQ marinade at the Asian grocery store near me. You may have different brands available to you, but my favorite is CJ Korean BBQ Kalbi sauce. It is so delicious and absolutely perfect for this recipe. This sauce really makes this meal TOO easy!
Easiest Instant Pot Korean Beef Ever!
- Instant Pot
- 3-4 lbs boneless beef chuck or rump roast cut into 3-inch pieces
- 1.5 cups Korean BBQ Marinade The best is CJ Korean Kalbi Marinade for Ribs!
- Throw the beef cubes and Korean BBQ marinade into the instant pot.
- Set Instant pot on Manual for 50 minutes.
- Turn off the Instant Pot and let it naturally release (about 20 minutes).
- Remove the beef and shred.
- Add some of the juice from the instant pot as needed.
Here are some ideas for what to make with this beef:
Korean Beef Grilled Cheese: korean beef, kimchi relish (ok, it’s just diced up kimchi), american cheese and sriracha mayo
Korean beef bao: korean beef, frozen bao buns, cucumbers and cilantro
Korean Beef Bowl: Korean beef, kimchi, rice, avocado, fried egg and sesame seeds
Korean Beef Bow II: Korean beef, quick pickled carrots, kale gnocchi (from trader joes), kimchi potstickers (frozen from Asian market) and spicy mayo
Korean Beef burrito: korean beef, rice, kimchi, quick pickled carrots and spicy mayo (you could add some spinach in there too if you want to make it “healthy”)
These are just examples of what I’ve used it for. I don’t have pictures of this, but I also made a burrito with korean beef, rice, kimchi, and spicy mayo. You could make tacos or you could get some potatoes going and make a breakfast hash with an egg on top.
