Pressure Cooker Carne Asada Tacos


  • 1 package Trader Joe's Carne Asada Autentica, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 1 package corn tortillas, warmed


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Transfer carne asada to the inner pot of a pressure cooker; pour in chicken stock.
  2. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 15 minutes on High Pressure. Let pressure release naturally, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the carne asada either directly to your taco, or to a bowl for easier serving.
  4. Spoon carne asada onto tortillas.
Mealthy tip:

Optional toppings: Cotija cheese, guacamole or avocado slices, sour cream, salsa, cilantro, or red onion.

This is my favorite carne asada recipe! Not too spicy, and perfect textured meat. This was also my first time shopping at Trader Joe's - I'm a new fan!

Taco Tuesdays should be a National Holiday!!! This recipe was amazing. The flavors from the TJ's Carne Asada were perfect. We topped these tacos with pico, guac, and crema.
