Tools Needed For this Recipe:

For this recipe, I’m not just using any old Instant Pot roast… it’s the maiden meal in my brand new, gorgeous Instant Pot by The Pioneer Woman that I picked up at Walmart.

Let me tell you: I love The Pioneer Woman and all her amazing products, which are only available at Walmart. Years and years ago, when I first started blogging, I made it a point to read Ree Drummond’s blog each day. I adored her. I loved her story telling style, her humor, all her recipes and the whole life she had created for her family.

So let’s talk about the latest and greatest: The Instant Pot by The Pioneer Woman. This six-quart wonder will quickly become a favorite item in your kitchen arsenal. Not to mention the two color choices are gorgeous! Because pretty things make everything better, including busy days. It’s a hugely versatile appliance: it works as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté/browning and warmer.

How to Make an Instant Pot Pot Roast

In your Instant Pot, pour olive oil and butter. Press the Sauté button, then Adjust until the red illuminated lights says MORE. Generously salt and pepper both sides of the roast.

When the Instant Pot is hot and the butter is melted, place the roast in the Instant Pot and brown on both sides (about 5 minutes each side).

Dissolve beef bouillon base in hot water. Remove the pot roast from Instant Pot. Sprinkle flour on the bottom of the pot and whisk. 

Slowly pour in the beef broth, red wine and tomato paste. Whisk until the mixture thickens, about 30 seconds.

Place the roast back into the pot and cover with rosemary and thyme. Turn the Instant Pot off and place the lid on the Instant Pot (you may have to wait for it to cool slightly).

How Long to Cook

Turn the vent to “sealing” and press Manual and set the time to 45 minutes.

When the timer goes off, do a quick release to release the pressure by carefully moving the vent to “venting” and let the steam release. When the steam releases, carefully remove the lid and remove the rosemary and thyme and then add the potatoes, carrots and onions.

Put the lid back on, turn the vent to “sealing”. Press Manual and set the time to 10 minutes.

When the timer goes off, quickly release the steam. Carefully remove the lid and scoop out the potatoes, onions and carrots onto a serving platter. Place the roast on top. Strain and reserve the liquid for serving.

What to Serve with Instant Pot Pot Roast

Of course, you’ll have potatoes and carrots with your roast. I like to also make a caesar salad and have a loaf of warm, cheesy pull apart bread to go along with the roast. It’s also great paired with dinner rolls or beer bread.
