Mexican Shredded Beef

I’ve been asked whether I think the Instant Pot is replacing the slow cooker and my answer is NO!  I love both of them and I think there is a place for them both in the kitchen.  Although the end result is pretty much the same, delicious food,  they serve different purposes and provide a different way for getting that delicious end result.
