Serve a classic pot roast in no time with our Instant Pot Classic Pot Roast recipe. This hearty, comforting family meal takes a fraction of the time to prepare compared to cooking in a Dutch oven so you have more time to enjoy together.



Step 1

Season chuck roast with 1-teaspoon salt. Heat the vegetable oil in the Instant Pot set to Sauté mode, medium heat. Sear one piece of roast on its two largest sides, about 4 minutes a side; transfer to a bowl. Repeat with second piece.

Step 2

Add the onions and garlic to the pot, stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and saute until the onions soften, about 5 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pot occasionally to loosen any browned bits of beef. Stir in broth and bring to a boil; cook 1 minute. Add rosemary, thyme, reserved beef with its juices and top with tomatoes.

Step 3

Lock the lid, set on “Pressure Cook” mode for 70 minutes.

Step 4

Let the pressure come down naturally, about 20 more minutes. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to avoid the hot steam.

Step 5

Carefully transfer beef chunks to a carving board. Discard rosemary and thyme sprigs. Strain the liquid from the pot into a fat separator. (Or just skim the excess fat with a ladle.)

Step 6

Cut the roast across the grain into bite size pieces, and serve with pot sauce.
