Pull Apart Goat Cheese Garlic Steak Bites
- Pressure Cooker or Slow Cooker
- 3 pound chuck roast
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/2 tsp table salt
- fresh cracked black pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and pressed through garlic presser (or minced)
- 2 tbsp reserved beef broth (see recipe)
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup goat cheese
- cherry tomatoes
- lemon zest
- base such as rice, couscous, tabbouleh
- Start by trimming the fatty edges off of the beef, and cutting it into 1 inch cubes. Toss the cubed beef into an instant pot, and pour in 1 cup of beef broth. Place the lid in a locked position with the release knob sealed & set IP to pressure cook on high for 33 minutes. (If slow cooking, place beef in slow cooker with beef broth and slow cook on low for 6-8 hours or hight for 4 hours.)
- When done, allow instant pot to sit undisturbed for a 10 minute natural release, then carefully turn the steam release knob to venting and release remaining pressure.
- Drain the liquid from the beef, making sure to reserve at least 2 tbsp (the liquid is great for soups!). The beef should be tender enough to be easily pulled apart. Season the beef cubes with salt/pepper and garlic powder.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, melt the butter in the pan, then add the seasoned beef cubes. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side until browned.
- Add the garlic and lemon juice, and2 tbsp of reserved beef broth. Mix well, then turn the heat off and add the goat cheese to the pan. Mix well until every piece of beef has goat cheese on it.
- Serve with your sides and enjoy!
