Instant Pot Pot Roast

Ingredients

Seasoning Mix

1 tbsp Dark brown sugar
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tbsp Onion Powder
1/2 tbsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika (regular paprika is fine too)

Pot Roast

Salt and Pepper
1 Chuck roast. Each pound feeds about 2 people. I usually get a 3 pound roast.
1 quart of beef broth (4 cups)
1 pound of full size carrots. Cut in about thirds
2-3 pounds of mini potatoes. If you have larger potatoes, just cut them up
1 large onion. Cut into fourths
6 stalks of full-size celery, ends cut off, cut in half
2 bay leaves

Steps

  1. Combine all of the seasoning mix ingredients together in a dish and set aside.
  2. Set your Instant Pot on Saute.
  3. Season the roast liberally on all sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Coat the bottom of the instant pot with a high smoke point oil (canola, vegetable, peanut, etc...) and sear the roast on all sides.
  5. Remove the roast and set it aside.
  6. Take a little bit of the beef broth and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Probably about a cup or half a cup.
  7. Add the roast back to the pot, along with your assortment of vegetables.
  8. Take a part of your seasoning mix and sprinkle it over the roast and vegetables.
  9. Add the rest of your beef broth into the pot along with two bay leaves.
  10. Add in the rest of your seasoning mix into the pot.
  11. Close and seal your Instant Pot and set it to manual for 95 minutes.
  12. If you have time, let it naturally release. It will probably take about 45 minutes. If not, you can force the release.
  13. Enjoy! It also makes great leftovers heated up in the microwave.
