How to Make a Roast in an Instant Pot
Next up on copykat.com pot roast in a pressure
cooker. Today we’re going to make a roast using a pressure cooker. Mine happens to be
an instant pot, but if you don’t have a pressure cooker go ahead and grab out your slow cooker.
You’re going to cook a roast in it for about six to eight hours on low. You’re going to
need to add a little broth to yours, but it’s all going to be quite good and tasty. We’re
going to go ahead and get started with this, I have about a four pound chuck roast. I like
using a chuck roast because it has nice marbling and they break down really well.
The first thing we’re going to do is simply season with a little bit of salt and pepper,
I’m going to be liberal in the salt. I’m using Kosher salt, I think you can use a little
bit less by weight compared to table salt and it tastes just as good. Now if you don’t
want to use salt and pepper you can use a dry rub such as this one right here. This
one is from I believe Adam’s it’s great on steaks and roast or you can use something
like Season All and just season your roast very simply. It’s gonna be great either way.
We’re going to go ahead and brown off this roast a little bit. One of the features I
love about the instant pot is that it can brown things for you. I’m going to pop this
in here and let it get brown on both sides and we’ll be back and we’ll continue this
recipe. While your roast is browning on one side, when I put the roast in I put it seasoned
side down and I’m just going to hit the top side right now with a little bit more seasoning.
Again we’re just going to brown this, so when it’s fully browned on both sides we’re going
to continue the recipe. The meat is browned on both sides, the next
thing I’m going to do; I chopped up an onion and I’m going to put that in. I’m also gonna
add three or four Bailey leaves. I have a Bailey bush in my yard, so I’m just gonna
put the fresh ones in, you can use dried ones. I’m going to put on the top and I’m going
to process this for about 70 minutes on the meat setting for the this. And I’m going to
let it do a natural release So once it finishes pressure cooking at the temperature it’s gonna
take about 20 minutes to go ahead and do a natural release. So we’ll be back when this
is done and I’ll show you what this looks like.
Our pot roast has finished cooking in the pressure cooker. Again I cooked it for 70
minutes and then I let it do a natural release, so it rested for about 20 minutes before I
just opened the lid. When I pulled this out it was just falling apart, so I think it’s
going to be fantastic. You can see that this meat is very tender and simply just shreds
apart, so we’re going to go ahead and give this a try. But before we do be sure to drop
