OMGosh. Please help! Was I supposed to cover the New York strip roast with liquid? I RUINED dinner because there are no IP instructions so I used the instructions for “beef roast” and “steak”. I’m so upset because I just got the darn thing and was so excited to make this for my husband and it has the texture of beef jerky. Can anyone help?
You made 2 mistakes.
- A pressure cooker (like InstaPot) relies on water to make steam to create pressure. You should not put a roast in the pressure cooker without adding liquid.
- A pressure cooker is ideal for breaking down collagen in cheap, tough cuts of meat to make them tender. NY Strip is a premium cut that is already tender - just roast it in the oven.
