Happy Taco Tuesday! Just kidding, it’s not Tuesday. That’s ok, because it doesn’t have to be Tuesday to have tacos. I believe that tacos are good for any day or every day, depending on what kind of mood you are in. I like tacos any time of the day as well-I’ll often enjoy tacos for breakfast, especially the day after making this Instant Pot Carne Asada 😉 I am a HUGE taco fan, if you weren’t already aware, I am guessing that is apparent now! I could eat tacos for a week or two straight and have no problems at all with it. I know because I have done this before… haha!

I am happy to share with you our own twist on Carne Asada made in none other than our beloved Instant Pot (which doesn’t have a name-suggestions welcome in the comments) I was planning to wait until next week to post this so recipe but.I.just.can’t.wait! I am so excited to share this recipe since we all loved it so much and I finally got around to finalizing and perfecting the ingredient list and process. Besides, those plantain tortilla shells from the other day are probably just so lonely without the Instant Pot Carne Asada recipe.

So, if you love carne asada but not the marinading process, try this recipe out and see what you think. We are all about throwing together quick last minute meals (especially on work nights!) but no way will we ever compromise on flavor! This recipe does call for an Instant Pot, obviously… which is a great thing to have anyway… but especially for this recipe! I am thinking that it would do just fine in a slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low, possibly 4 hrs on high but to be honest we have not used our slow cooker since getting our IP…. If you don’t have an Instant Pot and are feeling adventurous go ahead and try it in the slow cooker then let us know your result in the comments!
