  • Instant Pot


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 onion medium, sliced
  • pounds beef round steak thinly sliced
  • 1 package Italian dressing mix
  • cups beef broth
  • 1 loaf French Bread
  • 4 slices Provolone cheese


  • Set your instant pot to SAUTE and let it heat up.
  • Add olive oil, sliced green bell pepper, and sliced onion and saute until cooked through (about 5 minutes.)
  • Add sliced steak and italian dressing mix and saute meat with vegetables for 2 minutes.
  • Pour in beef broth and stir one last time.
  • Hit CANCEL on your instant pot to shut off the saute feature.
  • Place lid on Instant pot with valve set to “sealing.”
  • Select PRESSURE COOK or MANUAL and set timer for 8 minutes.
  • After timer runs out, let your Instant Pot do a natural release for 10 minutes.
  • Cut French bread into 4 pieces (4 hoagie buns work as well!).
  • Scoop meat onto sandwich and top with a slice of provolone cheese.
  • Optional: Toast or broil your sandwich to melt the cheese.


  • After Instant Pot Timer runs out, let your Instant Pot do a natural release for 10 minutes.
  • If you like your sandwiches toasted, place your open faced sandwich in the oven and broil on high for a few minutes, keeping an eye on it. Or in your toaster oven.
How to turn this into a freezer meal:
Place olive oil, green bell pepper, onion, cut up steak, and Italian dressing mix into a gallon-sized freezer bag.
Place freezer bag into freezer and it will last up to 90 days. When ready to use, dump ingredients from bag into Instant Pot and add 1 1/4 cups beef broth in with the frozen food.
Place the lid on top, move the valve to SEALING, and press the MANUAL button. Set timer for 25 minutes. Do a NATURAL RELEASE when the timer is done – I even like to let it sit in the Instant Pot for a few hours so that it falls apart so easily. Follow the rest of the instructions as written.
