  • 1 1/4 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® bottom round steak, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue spice rub
  • 1 cup Dr. Pepper
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 bag (10 to 15-ounce) tortilla chips
  • 2 cups (8-ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced thin
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Season beef with barbecue seasoning; add to Instant Pot with Dr. Pepper, vinegar and tomato paste. Affix lid in locked position and pressure cook on Meat/Stew setting (35 minutes).
  2. Let steam escape and remove lid. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat and reserve to a metal bowl. Set instant pot to Sauté and reduce sauce for 15 minutes (to yield about ¾ cup). While reducing, preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Arrange tortilla chips on a sheet pan and top with shredded cheese, onion and jalapeños. Bake for 5 minutes.
  4. With two forks or by hand shred cooked beef and stir in hot reduced barbeque sauce. Top nachos with barbecue beef and garnish with avocado and cilantro.
