I started with a beef blade roast. it’s a cut from the shoulder which is a tough cut of meat that normally takes a long time to cook. That’s where the pressure cooker comes in. All I did was cut the meat into cubes, brown it on the saute setting in the Instant Pot Pressure cooker,

add chicken stock, ginger and fish sauce. Then I set the Instant Pot pressure cooker to the beef, stew setting – the Instant Pot takes about 10 minutes to come up to pressure, then it cooks for 35 minutes and you get incredibly tender beef. Once the beef is cooked set the Instant Pot back to saute, add vegetables and shirataki noodles and there you have it. A delicious, Instant Pot Thai Inspired Low Carb Beef Noodle Soup on a weeknight.

    This soup looks delicious. I’ve tried Miracle Noodles, but I’ve never seem this brand before. Good to know there is something new out there.

    Shirataki noodles are not made with sweet potato flour. It is konjac root flour and has a few different names one being “yam” but it is not related to the sweet potato.
