Mexican Pot Roast with Borracho Beans - How To Video
INSTANT POT Version of Mexican Pot Roast with Borracho Beans + Beef Bone Broth
- I bought a 5.5 pound rack of Beef Spare Ribs.
- Placed them in the InstantPot by wrapping them around the inside of the pot.
- Dumped a one-pound bag of picked-through and rinsed dry pinto beans
- Cut up one yellow onion into 1-2 inch squares
- Tossed in a few cloves of garlic (minced) and added about 2 tbsp of kosher salt
- Filled the water to the "Max Fill Line"
- Set the InstantPot on High Pressure Cook for 1.5 hours, with 15 min Natural Release.
BEANS OR REFRIED BEANS
- After the first round of cooking, I took out all the beans and most of the broth.
- Put the beans in a large pan, add garlic, tomato paste, dried cilantro, cumin, lime, and Mexican oregano
- Heat over medium heat and stir in all of the ingredients.
- At this point if you want beans, you are done. If you want refried beans you start mashing the beans and other ingredients, adding some of the reserved broth. Continually stirring until you have the consistency you want.
MEAT & BONE BROTH
- After removing the beans and most of the broth, fill the InstantPot with more water, 1 tbsp of vinegar, add some carrots, and 2 bay leaves
- Set the InstantPot on High Pressure Cook for 2 hours with 45 min Natural Release.
How this recipe came about. My husband loves Alfredo sauce on his noodles instead of red spaghetti sauce. So I would purchase the jars, but since it's just him that eats it, it would go bad before he could finish an entire jar. So then we were buying the packets at the market, and that just seemed silly since they had so many added ingredients that we couldn't even pronounce. So, I got out my Freeze Dried powders and started putting together a recipe that he could use on his pasta. In no time at all we had a solution.
