Very Best Pot Roast Ever (Instant Pot Recipe)January 22, 2019 • By Tara Ziegmont
This Instant Pot pot roast recipe makes a juicy and incredibly tender roast that is paired with potatoes, carrots, and a flavorful brown gravy.
Before Joe and I were married, we used to go with my mom and sister to a local private club. It was pretty shady in a lot of ways, but their food was super cheap and really, really good. One of my favorite meals there was pot roast.
Their pot roast reminded me of my mom’s from my childhood. (She had pretty much stopped cooking by that time.) It was tender and fell apart with a fork. It was also flavorful, but without anything weird. It just tasted like beef. The best part was that it was accompanied by a huge helping of mashed potatoes with copious amounts of homemade brown gravy.
The recipe below makes an amazing, tender, and flavorful pot roast, too, though it suggests making potatoes and carrots alongside it in the Instant Pot. This is more like the way my mom made pot roast when I was a kid, always with the potatoes and carrots right in the pot, and it doesn’t make gravy, so you will have to whisk some up afterward.
I don’t generally eat potatoes, but my family does and I’m sure would prefer them mashed like the club made them. It’s totally up to you.
Here are a few other Instant Pot recipes you might enjoy:
Pot roast, which used to be an all day affair, got an update in this one-hour Instant Pot recipe, but you’ll never know because it tastes so good!
