Beef Morcon is a savory Filipino beef roulade cut into thin sheets, rolled with fillings such as bacon, sausages or hotdogs, hard boiled eggs, sweet pickles or dill, carrots and cooked in an Instant Pot.
For instructions on how to prepare morcon, please visit my original Morcon recipe. When ready cook in an instant pot, please come back to this page. There is a link to go back to this page.
Set your Instant Pot to “Saute”. Set it to Low. Wait until the inner pot is hot.
Add 3 tablespoons oil. When hot, brown the morcon. Remove from pot once it is brown. Set aside.
Put the lid and close it.
Set time to 25 minutes. (Note: Meat will get tender quicker using the pressure cooker mode. I prefer to set the time by installment. If I need more than 25 minutes I can repeat the same procedure. When making Morcon you don’t want the meat falling apart. With my instant pot the meat was tender in 25 minutes.
Note: Different type of meat will require adjusting the cooking time. Unfortunately, at first it is a trial and error.
Then a 25 minute count down.
Once done the display will show the elapsed time showing the letter “L with a #’. At this point press CANCEL.
This is the method I used.
Remove morcon with a tong.
Change Instant Pot setting to “SAUTE”.
Set the time to 10 to 30 minutes.
Let the sauce simmer until reduced. Once reduced, you may press CANCEL to stop the cooking program.
Unplug the Instant Pot. Let the morcon cool down a bit. Remove the twine.
Slice morcon. Add sauce on morcon or serve it on the side.
I use Instant Pot 6 quarts 7 in 1 Model IP-DUO60 V3. This is a good size for a family of 4. Depending on the dish cooked it can serve up to 6 people.
