Easy Instant pot beef pot roast recipe

It only take 4 easy affordable ingredients to make this recipe. I didn’t use any carrots this time, but you sure can if you like to. So what in the pot?

  • Beef chuck or round roast
  • small potatoes
  • tomato paste
  • condensed onion or mushroom soup

I  don’t usually cook with condensed soups, but it works perfectly with this recipe. If you want a quick dinner fix for the family but you are out of fresh herbs, this is the way to go.  Just dump the soup in to your instant pot along with tomato paste, cut meat in cubes for faster cooking and place on top. Add whole washed with the skin on potatoes and close the lid. Oh i love dump and start recipes!

What kind of beef is best for pot roast

Chuck or Round roast is traditionally and widely used for a pot roast. Its inexpensive and you usually can get a good deal when buying in bulk. when this cut of meat is cooked for a long time, or short time under pressure, like in this recipe, it becomes very tender and flavorful. You can also go with a more expensive cut, brisket. Cut it against the grain and give it a try.

I can't imagine *NOT* getting the burn message with this recipe as written ...

Was very eager to try this recipe tonight! Unfortunately, my instant pot screen keeps saying “burn” on it. I’m following the directions to a T so I’m not sure why it’s doing that. 😞

Sorry! Unfortunately newer Instant Pot models have this issue, they are too sensitive. My instant pot is a 2017 8 qt model and i never had a BURN message ever...Try to add a cup of beef broth or water, that will help. Thank you for pointing it for me, i will add the additional instructions to the post.
