    Hey Tara,
    Thanks for the wonderful recipe! I’ll definitely give it a try.
    I was wondering how you liked the instant pot versus the slow cooker. I don’t like to cook meat in the slow cooker, because it changes the texture and makes it drier and tougher, even if there’s liquid all the time. I would imagine that instant pot doesn’t have this issue, but I’ve tasted a few dishes that were cooked in an instant pot, and the meat got an odd taste. Any insights, or tips on how to avoid that? I’ll also check the bundle, I am off home for work for 10-14 days at a time, back home for 4-6 days, so meal planning is a huge help. Thanks so much!

      There is definitely a difference between meats cooked in the IP and meats cooked in the oven. I would say it’s similar to what you would get in the slow cooker. Chicken, for example, comes out a little drier and a little denser than if you baked or fried it on the stovetop. I wouldn’t say it’s entirely dry and tough, but it is different. I’ve also never noticed that the IP meats had a different flavor, so I can’t speak to that.

    Thanks for your input, Tara! I guess I’m not very adventurous, and I will prepare your recipe in a regular pot, it should work perfectly if I’m not in a hurry.

    Is this an hour at low or high pressure?

    I’ve been using my IP for over a year now, but never for a pot roast. I hope it turns out good, I’m making it right now!

      PS- I added in about a quarter of a cup of cooking sherry and some celery.

    So this is my first try at this instapot thing. When I go to cook it for 60 min do I put on Meat/Stew setting? I did that and set timer but it just says on right now. Help!!

      Hi Christy,
      You want to set it to High Pressure. Mine doesn’t have a Meat/Stew setting, so I’m not sure what that will do. Did you try the manual that came with it?

      i would just do the ‘pressure cook’ setting and increase the time to 60 minutes with the + sign. I mostly use the ‘pressure cook’ button and set my high/low pressure manually and also select my time manually. It is the same as using the other buttons if you have a recipe that indicates the amount of pressure and time on it; it does not cook it any differently in any way. The presettings are if you want a more ‘preguided’ way of cooking for pressure and time options is all.

    Hi! I dont have a steamer basket to put the carrots in. Any suggestions? And 60 minutes seems like quite a long time for the potatoes and carrots to cook. Will they be mush by the time 60 minutes is up?

      i just put mine at the very top of the roast and make sure the thicker pieces of carrot/potato are closer to the bottom with the tinier pieces on the very very top. I have also stopped my pressure cooker early, and added carrots for an extra 10 minutes at the end, for example. takes a bit more time bc of the depressurization/pressurizing time needed, but its an option.

    Dee-licious! Only thing I did different was use vegetable broth because I didn’t have beef handy.
