We love the Instant Pot™ for many reasons, but making a super tender, flavorful pot roast dinner in under 2 hours just might be the best one. All of your favorite ingredients in a classic pot roast are here: boneless chuck roast, baby potatoes, baby carrots, onion, and plenty of sauce and seasoning. Thanks to this trusty appliance, a dish that usually takes all day to make is done in way less time, but tastes just like it’s been slow cooking for 8 hours. Once you try this recipe, you’ll never make pot roast another way! MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • You can thicken the juice for serving, if desired. Remove beef and veggies to serving platter, and cover to keep warm. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons each cornstarch and cold water, mixing well. Select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Heat juices to boiling. Slowly stir in cornstarch mixture; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Select CANCEL. Serve with beef and vegetables.
  • Chuck roast varies in weight. Larger cuts of meat should be divided into 6 pieces to ensure the most tender roast.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
