Begin by searing the chuck roast in a cast-iron skillet or large Dutch oven over medium-high heat to create that delicious brown crust.


Next, add garlic cloves, tomato paste, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, entire spices, bouillon, and chopped veggies to the Instant Pot with the seared chuck roast.


Add dried chiles to the dish. To prepare the chiles, you must cut the stems off with scissors and remove the seeds.


1 1/2 quarts is usually the amount of water needed to cover this recipe with a 3–4 lb. chuck roast. Finish with a squeeze of lime juice.


Seal the Instant Pot, making sure the pressure valve is set to seal. Set for 2 hours.


After the Birria de Res is done cooking, the Instant Pot will keep the meat warm until you are ready to shred it.
