If you haven’t had my Mom’s Pot Roast…and I guess none of you have :), then you’re in for a treat. This sauce is TO DIE FOR and you’ll never find a better recipe. This meal just takes me back. Takes me back to family dinners, takes me back to “everybody raise your hand if Mom made a great meal”, takes me back to the basics. I want Henry to grow up knowing these flavors and having those memories. This is what comfort food is all about. It doesn’t take much…just meat, potatoes, and carrots. The perfect recipe.

If you’re new to the Instant Pot revolution, be sure to check out our other pressure cooked favorites. We have everything from turkey breast to chicken tortilla soup. Something for everyone!

In the “Shop This Post” section below I’ve linked to two of my favorite Instant Pots…both 6 and 8 qt. If cooking for a family of 4…I think the 6 quart is more than big enough. If you have a larger family, you might consider the 8 quart. I’m in LOVE with this new found wonder and hope you have fun using it!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Set Instant Pot to “Sauté”.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of the pot roast with salt, black pepper and paprika and set aside.
  3. Add oil and butter to the Instant Pot. When the oil is hot and has a shimmer, use tongs to add the roast (resist the urge to flip it for 3-4 minutes). The roast should have a beautiful golden brown sear. Turn the roast over and sear it on the opposite side. Transfer the roast to a plate.
  4. Add the quartered onion and carrots. Cook 3-4 minutes or until vegetables begin to caramelize and brown. Add garlic and sear for 30 seconds.
  5. Slowly add the broth (deglaze) while scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spatula.
  6. Place the Instant Pot trivet over the vegetable/broth/wine mixture and set the Instant Pot to “Pressure Cook or Manual” on HIGH and set for 55 minutes.
  7. Place the roast in the Instant Pot on top of the trivet.
  8. Place the rosemary and thyme sprigs on the roast.
  9. If adding root vegetables (to eat as a side) place them on the top of the roast and sprinkle with additional kosher salt and pepper.
  10. Pour the broth over the vegetables and roast.
  11. Place the lid on the pot and turn to LOCK position. Set the vent to the SEALED position.
  12. When the cooking time is done, allow the Instant Pot to natural release. This will take about 10 minutes. When the float valve (red valve) drops, it is safe to open the lid.
  13. Transfer the root vegetables to a platter, and (carefully) remove the roast by the handles of the trivet. Discard the herb sprigs and transfer the roast to the platter with the vegetables. Cover the platter with foil to keep the food warm.
  14. Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté”.
  15. To make the gravy, use an immersion (or hand) blender to purée the liquid and vegetables in the bottom of the pot. (If an immersion blender isn’t available, carefully purée the mixture in a regular blender, in batches.) If needed, season the gravy with salt & pepper, and cook the gravy for 3-5 minutes or until it thickens a little.
  16. While the gravy thickens, use a fork to remove excess fat from the roast and the divide the roast into large chunks, for serving. Quarter the carrots.
  17. Serve the root vegetables and roast with the hot gravy.
  18. Enjoy!
