How do I convert Mexican Beef from Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) to VitaClay?

Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Mexican Beef 

Recipe courtesy of Nom Nom Paleo®
Converted to VitaClay

Due to customersÔÇÖ requests, we converted popular pressure cooking recipes into VitaClay. Why? Unmatched results.

Let your VitaClay cooker do the magic for this authentic Mexican treat! The fork-tender meat is exceptional with a thick and rich sauce made with tomatoes and salsa added with a spicy kick from chili powder; yum! I canÔÇÖt wait for another weekend to share this with my family.┬á
