How to make Pot Roast in your Instant Pot


Everyone this is stephanie manley with Copykat.com, but today i’m going to show you how to make a pot roast in your instant pot Forgive me. I have a cold I’m going to try to do my best to walk you through this We are gonna begin by setting your instant pot to saute you’re going to let it go ahead and heat up And you’re gonna add a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil here. I just happen to be using olive oil today Then I’m going to lightly salt my Chuck first here now I like to use chuck gross the best whenever I do a roast I like the marbling on them, and it has a great flavor It’s actually positioned fairly close to the ribeye on the cow, so we all like verba is a wine on a Chuck Eye, or a chuck roast now. I will trim this after it finishes cooking so please don’t be alarmed at this point I’m gonna go ahead and install the other side to that pan. It’s also tied down It’s probably gonna take I don’t know five or six minutes to saute on each side you want each side to be Nice and brown so I go ahead and speed this up for you a little bit I’m gonna go ahead and flip it and you’re gonna see that it is a gorgeous Color of brown on the next side so it looks great So we also need to let it go ahead and brown up on the other side as well So once this browns up on the other side of wait about five or six minutes here. I’m going to add one package of dry onion soup mix I’m also gonna add two tablespoons of tomato paste and then I’m gonna add two cups of beef stock This is a pot roast so it’s going to cook in liquid It’s gonna kind of braise, but your pressure and at this point. I am NOT going to add my vegetables We’re gonna do a two step process here, so I’m using the manual setting I’m gonna crank it up to sixty minutes I’m not using the meat setting because I like to control this manually myself After 60 minutes you can see what it looks like and now I’m gonna add in the veggies This way they don’t turn into mush they still retain lots of Their characteristics, I’m adding about a cup of sliced onion About a cup of potatoes and a little generous cup of carrots. They’re so gonna cook this for four minutes No, I’ll make it step back. I’m going to use the manual setting again so look down on your menu select manual and bring the time down to Four minutes, and this is a 6-quart instant pot If you like if you use your other size instead of five But you can see when I get done with this it is really. It’s fork-tender It is gorgeous now the carrots gave the potatoes and onion just a gorgeous color and well as the tomato base you can see it’s so easy to make an Instant pot pot roast so if you enjoyed this video Please be sure to give me a big thumbs up.

    Never thought of adding vegetable oil to a instant/crock pot. I will have to give that a try. Thanks.

  7. Eddie Melikian says:

    Stephanie, I'm curious as to why use the manual button versus the meat button. I've looked up the cooking profiles (on the Instant Pot website) and there are differences but they don't indicate what manual is or how it might differ from say, meat.. I get the feeling they added many of those buttons for show. Am I getting too OCD with this?

    I enjoyed watching your videos.. But I would like to see a video on a pot roast in the instant pot duo mini.. with a few veggies if possible.. I will try this myself either way but I will never make a video of it.. I will purchase a regular size roast & cut it in half if need be.. But no doubt any meal can be made to fit this smaller pot.. It is not just for side dishes as many think it is..Have a Blessed day😍

    I just got my instant pot for Christmas and I am using it for the first time tonight. This looks to be the perfect recipe for me because it has everything in it that we like and will eat. Good job.

    Thank you so much, from me & my sister. Your videos convinced us we needed this gizmo.

    We bought a Lux 6QT Instant Pot.

    We made this dinner in 55 freaking minutes!

    A pot roast, in 55 minutes.

    It was stupendous.

    I don’t pay much attention to new gizmos, but I watched a couple of your videos and kept it in mind.

    We bought it a couple weeks ago.

    What a fantastic thing!

    Thanks again!

  13. Stacy Kohout says:

    Something I am wondering is how it would turn out if you put the meat on the trivet. Have you tried that?

  14. Matthew Eardley says:

    Do you use a natural release for this one? If so, how long?

  15. Pillip Wright Wright says:

    Kool. Cook the meat 1st!! Then the rest. Very good.

  16. THE SNOOZE BUTTON says:

    Could I add some.red wine to this

  17. Kim L says:

    I made this today and it was a WINNER. Fed 3 men and they loved it! One went back for 4ths! The chuck roast was so tender. The carrots and potatoes were perfectly cooked. Thanks!

  18. Dagan Haddad says:

    6 min for potatoes? wow…pardon, 4 minutes

  19. Robo Man says:

    I really like the method you use for cooking chuck roast.

  20. kathy Noble says:

    I got my instant pot as a gift & am not real familar in using it yet. I watched your video on making a roast with potatoes & carrots. I don't have tomatoe paste, so can I leave that out? I have a 5.34 lb roast, so how long do I need to cook it, before adding the potatoes & carrots?

  21. The Lion and Champion says:

    Maybe you can help me. I cooked my first roast in the Instant pot. A beef tip sirloin, or two pieces, weighing a total about four pounds. I used two cups of water and set the roast on the trivet. I set the timer for seventy five minutes. The roast is tender but has absolutely no taste. Did the roast get saturated with moisture and lost all flavor? I appreciate any help. Thank you.

  22. Carmen says:

    Hold on did you seal or vent it for 60 minutes? You never explained that

  23. Becky Hawkins says:

    Sounds good going to try it next time I knew pot roast
