These freezer friendly BBQ Beef Sandwiches are popular at parties and potlucks! It almost feels like cheating to call this easy, tender, barbecue-smothered beef a "recipe" especially now that it can be made in the Instant Pot!

Freeze For Later Cooking Day Directions

These directions help you cook or prepare this meal PRIOR to being frozen for serving later (see Serving Day Directions when you are ready to prepare it to eat).

Why would I want to freeze this?

  3. Place the roast inside the inner pot and pour barbecue sauce over the roast.
  4. Lock the lid in place and seal steam nozzle.
  5. Cook on high pressure for 40 minutes.
  6. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
  7. Shred the beef with two forks.

  1. 40 minutes cannot possibly be long enough to cook a solid piece of red meat. Especially if it is not already cut up into chunks.

    1. Orissa, in the ingredient list is says “1 ½ pounds quarter Beef Roast” as a note to cut up the beef roast in 1/4 chunks. That said, it will cook in the time listed. Let us know though if you have any problems! Happy Cooking!

  2. Can you help me understand what cut of beef I am to get for this recipe, and then how I need to cut it to prepare it? I find the directions are not exactly clear for this one. Thanks!!

    1. From our user feedback: If your bbq sauce is thick, you will need to add water. And if you are worried about overcooking, (and your meat is from fresh and not frozen), you could cook for 20 minutes and do a quick release. If you need to add additional time, the Instant Pot should come back to pressure quickly because it has already been heated.

    1. Hi Jo Ann, if you cook this from fresh, it take about 5 minutes for your Instant Pot to come to pressure. If cooking from frozen, it takes about 15 minutes. Hope this helps. Happy Cooking! ~ OAMM
