The Ultimate Instant Pot Pot Roast

Pin This Recipe!

Once you try making your pot roast this way, you will never make another pot roast any other way. This truly is the ultimate Instant Pot pot roast recipe ever! Pot roasts used to be something I only cooked on the weekends because it took way to much time to cook in the oven during the week. But now with my Instant Pot, I can make pot roast anytime we get a craving because it cooks incredibly fast and leaves our pot roast so tender and juicy!

Pot roast is a meal that we grew up eating pretty much every single weekend. Our pot roast consisted of meat, carrots, potatoes, and of course, grab the homemade gravy and dinner rolls. It was one meal I think the whole family looked forward to, and we never got sick of it.

She always would cook it in the oven all day long, nice and slow. So when you pulled it out the meat would just shred instantly, and the flavor was spectacular and it was nice and juicy. One of my favorite parts was the potatoes, they tasted so good soaked in the juices!

I think you all know how addicted I am to the Instant Pot. Yesterday I made Instant Pot copycat Panera Macaroni N Cheese and today The Ultimate Instant Pot, Pot roast we are eating well this week.  This pot roast was very tender and shreds very easy and bursting with flavor. The veggies were very tender but not overdone like you would think. You will have plenty to feed the family a nice dinner and have leftovers to make sandwiches.

But, we live in a world where we have an Instant Pot that can tackle any meal pretty much in a fraction of the time. So now I can make this ultimate instant pot, pot roast anytime I want. I don’t have to make sure I am home to monitor the roast the entire day.

With the natural release at the end of the cook time, it really helps tenderize the meat and locks in all the flavors like it has been cooking the entire day. You pull it out and dish it up for that same flavor you grew up eating.

Browning your roast on both sides adds a whole new flavor and texture to your meat. I learned that years ago, and I always quickly braise both sides. It will help create a little crust and the seasonings you put on will lock in, and it adds so much flavor and keeps your roast nice and moist as it cooks.

If you have never done this, make sure not to skip this step and see the difference that I am talking about!
