For the Beef

  • 1 Pre Chuck Roast, room temperature and patted dry
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 Tbsp. sea salt

For the Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter (unsweetened)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. chili paste (see below for Whole30 compliant version)

  1. Season chuck roast on all sides with salt.
  2. Place chuck and water into Instant Pot. Close the top of the pot and set to ‘Sealed.’
  3. Press ‘Manual’ on the pressure cooker and use the ‘-‘ and ‘+’ buttons to set to 45 minutes. After it’s done, let pressure reduce naturally for 5 minutes.
  4. Prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  5. When the roast only has 10 minutes left of cooking, sauté garlic and cauliflower in a large skillet with coconut oil until caramelized. Taste and season with salt. Set aside.
  6. When beef is done, remove from pot and shred with forks. Place back in the pot with juices.
  7. In the same skillet, pour contents of sauce and beef with juices. Bring to a boil and then let simmer, stirring occasionally.
  8. When the sauce is thick and reduced by half, toss with sesame seeds. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.
  9. Serve on top of cauliflower rice with sliced green onions and extra sesame seeds.
Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
