Famous Instant Pot Swiss Steak

This one pot wonder is not only my families number one favorite dish but it’s easy and perfect for a hearty meal. Serve it along side mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, rice or pasta! All options accompany this Instant Pot Swiss Steak beautifully.

The instant pot not only cooks dishes fast but also tenderizes to perfection! Instead of cooking in a slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours this steak will be done and tenderized in 30 minutes!
