How to make Pot Roast in your Instant Pot

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Learn how you can make a delicious pot roast in your Instant Pot. It’s so simple to make this classic roast in your 6 quart Instant Pot. This recipe was originally posted on my blog at:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 3 to 4 pound roast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package dry onion soup mix
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups of beef broth or stock
1 big white onion cut into big chunks
1 to 2 cups potatoes
1 cup of carrots

Set your Instant Pot to saute. Heat two tablespoons vegetable oil, and then lightly salt both sides of the roast. Brown both sides of the roast, it should take about 6 to 7 minutes per side to brown the roast. Then add 1 package dry onion soup mix, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, and 2 cups of beef broth or stock. Set your Instant Pot to high pressure (it defaults to high), for 60 minutes. After the pressure cooker has finished processing, perform a fast release.

Add onions, potatoes, and carrots. Set your Instant Pot to high pressure for 4 minutes. After this cooking cycle you may perform a fast release.
