I love using Tri Tip for this recipe, only because I like the flavor and it’s a tender piece of meat. The Instant Pot works so well at tenderizing the meat that any cut would be fine.
What Meat is the Best for this Instant Pot Swiss Steak Recipe?
What Do I Do If I Don’t Have The Same Buttons On My Instant Pot?
Sauté Button: Most instant pots have some sort of sauté button. This is a process used with the lid off for non pressure cooking.
Meat or Stew Button: Best for cooking large cuts of meat of high pressure. If you don’t have this button, cooking with the manual button on high pressure will work just as well.
