Instant Pot/pressure cooker 10-minute steak tacos were the perfect cure for my busy weekend. This past weekend was soooooo hectic for me. I spent a large chunk of my Sunday out to brunch with friends. Bottomless mimosas were involved. We had such a great time! This left me with very little time to prep my meals for the week. I had leftover steak on hand from my Instant Pot Mongolian Beef and Quinoa recipe. I decided to whip up steak tacos.

I used the Instant Pot because I am obsessed with the saute’ function. I used a small amount of olive oil and the steak always comes out tender and juicy! For shredded tacos use the pressure cooker setting after sauteeing the meat.
You could also opt to pan sear the steak instead of using the Instant Pot. I prefer the Instant Pot because it does saute’ somewhat faster and yields really juicy steak.
There are so many ways to include steak in a healthy eating regime. Be sure to trim the excess fat from the steak before seasoning.
These tacos pair perfectly with my homemade guacamole recipe. These are the quinoa and black bean chip from Trader Joe’s. These chips are my favorite!

Quick and easy 10-minute Instant Pot steak tacos are a healthy and skinny meal. Tacos are loaded with fresh salsa, cilantro, and juicy steak.
- 8 oz sirloin steak fat trimmed and sliced into thin pieces
- 1/2 cup red onion chopped
- 1/4 cup tomatoes chopped
- 3/4 cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese shredded
- 2 tbsp crema or sour cream
- 6 tbsp authentic salsa one tablespoon per taco
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
- Trader Joe's Taco Seasoning to taste
- McCormick's Grill Mates Steak Rub and pepper to taste
Turn the Instant Pot on the saute' function. When the pot displays "Hot" add the olive oil to the pot.
Season the steak with the seasonings. Add the steak to the pot.
Cook both sides of the steak for 2-3 minutes until the steak turns brown.
Remove the steak from the pot. Top the steak with cheese immediately if you prefer melted cheese on your tacos.
Turn the oven on Broil. When heated, add the corn tortillas to the oven. Place the tortillas directly on an oven rack. Allow the tortillas to warm for a couple of minutes.
Remove the tortillas and add the steak, crema, salsa, and tomatoes. Sprinkle the cilantro throughout.
