Instant Pot Flank Steak Fajitas

Since opening my Instant Pot I have wanted to give sous vide cooking a try, but to be honest I wasn’t quite sure how to do it.

I had heard that sous vide makes meat fall apart soft.

And OMG yaas. These pressure cooker steak fajitas were absolute perfection.

It was definitely an adventure learning this new cooking method!

I must warn y’all though, sous vide cooking definitely was not an “instant” method of cooking.

While sous vide cooking does take quite some time, it is an awesome cooking method for infusing a ton of flavor.

What is Sous Vide?

Sous vide (pronouced sue veed) is a fancy pants way of saying a method where even the worst of cooks cannot mess this up. ha.

Ok well kinda…

Sous vide is French for “under vacuum” and it is a low maintenance method of cooking in a water-controlled bath.

The awesome part about cooking in a water bath is that you are in complete control of the temperature. If you set it at 140 degrees, there are no other factors that will take it above 140 degrees which means your meal will cook without overcooking.

It’s brilliantly easy and definitely worth giving a try.

How to Sous Vide in Your Instant Pot

If you own the Instant Pot Smart Bluetooth then you are in luck! All you need to do is some calibration and you are good to go! You can read how to calibrate your Smart Bluetooth for sous vide here.

Since I do not own that model I used this nifty little device – an immersion circulator to keep the water moving and control the temperature.
