  • 1-2 pounds beef, but in ½-3/4 inch cubes I used a top sirloin steak I had in the freezer for our's. Just trim the fat off it, and cube.
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper this is a variable, depending on how spicy you like it.
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ cup salsa We grabbed Pace as it was on sale. Use whatever salsa you prefer.
  • 1 cup water


  • Heat pressure on saute.
    Add oil to pressure cooker and heat. Add beef and spices. Cook, stirring occasionally until beef is browned. Last ingredients are the salsa and water.
    Secure lid and turn pressure on high. Cook for 7 minutes. Do the quick release. Next, turn it to saute again and let the sauce reduce. How quickly this goes will depend on how your hot your saute is. Mine took about 7 minutes. You will want it to cook down and thicken. Do not adjust salt until the sauce has reduced. The salt and flavors will intensify as it cooks down.
    Once it is cooked down, it's done! Serve how you choose. This is also a great meal prep idea. Cook in bulk and refrigerate what you don't use the day of.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it.
