We love enjoying a home cooked Beef Pot Roast in our home, and I’ve typically prepared it in the oven or slow cooker. However, sometimes I don’t have time in the morning to get it in the crockpot, or I’m not home in time to prepare it for the oven. Using my new Instant Pot, I can get it ready in about an hour, which is a huge time saver for me! This recipe requires the basic ingredients, but you can also add, swap, or remove ingredients based on your personal preferences.

These are the ingredients I used to prepare this Instant Pot Pot Roast:

2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons oil of choice
1 3-5lb beef roast (personal preference)
1 onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup beef broth
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
4 potatoes, peeled and chopped (omit or replace with cauliflower if low-carb)
Instant Pot Pot Roast
To begin, place the butter and oil in your instant pot. Set to Saute setting. Season the roast with salt and pepper. When the butter is melted, add the roast and sear on each side until well browned, about 1 1/2-2 minutes on each side. Remove roast from instant pot. Add in the onions, cook while stirring occasionally for 3 minutes until translucent, then the garlic. Cook 1 minute before turning off Saute setting.

Place the roast in the instant pot and pour in the beef broth. Secure the lid and select manual for 50 minutes. Natural or quick release, then add the carrots and potatoes. Cook on manual for 10 additional minutes.
