These Instant Pot Beef Drip Sandwiches are packed with flavor and surprisingly low calorie with under 300 calories per sandwich, plus they are ready in one hour in an Instant Pot.

I need another kithen appliance like I need a hole in my head. But after seeing Instant Pots everywhere I turned since the holidays, I finally caved and bought one and am officially obsessed. If you haven't seen an Instant Pot yet, it's basically a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and yogurt maker all in one. Plus it has a saute feature so you can brown your meats and saute your veggies in the same pot you will be cooking in. Amazing.

To be honest, I was mostly interested in the pressure cooker feature since it's basically a faster way to make all my favorite healthy slow cooker recipes. For example, I braised some chicken thighs in salsa in the Instant Pot this weekend and they were ready in 15 minutes. Plus this pepperoncini beef that normally takes 8 hours, was ready in an hour. Love it. It makes all the delicious soups, stews, and braises I love from the slow cooker - just faster. Plus as someone who constantly overcooks rice, I can't wait to use the built in rice cooker.

But enough about the Instant Pot, let's talk about this recipe for a moment. It all starts with my favorite pepperoncini beef which is laced with onions, pepperoncinis, and Italian seasoning. Then everything is piled high into a sandwich and topped with sliced peppers for some crunch and cheese. Because cheese makes everything better.

Have you tried the Instant Pot yet? What are your favorite things to make?
