Beef Roast in the Instant Pot Ultra 6 Quart 10 in 1

Are you looking for a good recipe to make in your Instant Pot?

The other night I wanted to finally use my new Instant Pot that I got to feature and was excited to be able to try it out and wanted to do a beef stew meal, and oh my goodness it turned out amazing! We have six people in our family to feed for meals and this fed everyone. 

My husband said that the meat was a little rubbery which I did not think it tasted bad at all, but next time, I will be cutting the meat into pieces before putting it in the Instant Pot to cook, or just brown it a little in a pan before putting it in here. 

I have been eager to try out an Instant Pot for a long time now and have heard amazing things about it and how quickly it cooks meals for moms especially who don't want to spend a long time in the kitchen making dinner every night. I got the Ultra 6 Quart 10 in 1.

I decided to thaw out my beef roast before cooking it in the Instant Pot, although you can put it in there frozen and only need to add about 20 - 30 additional minutes to your cooking time. I normally am not big on eating vegetables for myself, but these cooked in with the meat turned out absolutely amazing and were delicious!

What you need to make this Beef Roast:
- 2 or 3 lb beef roast
- 1 onion diced
- 1 medium can of green beans 
- 1 bag of baby carrots 
- 5 or 6 peeled and sliced potatoes
- 2 cups of water or 2 cups of beef broth

To make this delicious meal, follow these simple steps:

1. Preheat your Instant Pot and set it to (manual) Pressure Cook high for 60 minutes
2. Place your beef roast in the 6 qt pot 
3. Top it with vegetables on and around the roast
4. Add 2 cups of water or 2 cups of beef broth
5. Secure lid and set it to seal
6. Let it release naturally - do NOT use the quick release for at least 15 - 20 minutes
7. Cut into the meat to ensure it's fully cooked and enjoy!

  1. I use mine all the time. I've gotten to the point that I just start throwing stuff in there and hoping it comes out good, lol. Most of the time it does!
