This pot roast is juicy, fork-tender and exploding with flavor. If you think it takes forever to prepare the most tender and juicy pot roast… think again! This recipe requires just 20 minutes of prep time (which includes searing time) and your pressure cooker pretty much does the rest.
I sliced my onion into wedges so they would not fall apart during cooking. The first time I tested this recipe, I sliced my onion about 1/4-inch thick and it looked like there wasn’t much left of them after cooking (although the flavor was there, I still like to bite into the onion!).
How to make Instant Pot Pot Roast Gravy
It’s incredibly easy to make savory and flavorful gravy for this roast. You’ll start by transferring the beef, tomatoes and onions from the pressure cooker to a serving platter. Allow the fat to rise in the liquid and skim off the fat. Set your Instant Pot to sauté and bring the liquid to a boil. Pour in a cornstarch slurry and stir until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
I love it served over hot rice, but it’s also delicious with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
