Instant Pot Roast Beef Recipe

instant pot roast beef recipe

This Instant Pot roast beef recipe is a huge hit in my home. In fact my family love a Sunday Roast from time to time and cooking roast beef in the pressure cooker is a fantastic way to enjoy a roast dinner that is easy, simple and fast to cook. 

Being from Yorkshire myself, (the home of roast beef and Yorkshire puddings), it was only a matter of time before I shared a delicious Instant Pot roast recipe and this meal uses the classic beef chuck roast meat. 

If you’re following the Weight Watchers plan then your in luck. I’ve pointed this recipe up. The meal serves 8 and one serving is ?? Weight Watchers points on the 2019 freestyle plan.

Ingredients For Your Instant Pot Roast Beef Recipe

  • 3 pound beef chuck roast 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil 
  • ½ large white onion, cut in chunks
  • ½ cup water 
  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary 
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup beef broth 
  • 1 ½ pounds red baby potatoes 
  • 8 ounces whole baby bella mushrooms
  • 3 carrots, washed and ends cut off 

How To Cook Roast Beef In The Instant Pot

Turn your Instant Pot onto saute mode and add olive oil. Heat until hot, and then add in the roast.

Brown on each side, and then turn the saute mode off. Remove the roast from the Instant Pot and add in ½ cup of water and scrape the bottom of the pot.

Put the roast back in the Instant Pot and then add in onions, garlic and seasonings.

Next pour the beef broth over the meat. 

Place the lid on the pressure cooker and turn the pressure valve to sealed. Set manual high-pressure time for 100 minutes, doing a natural pressure release for 20 minutes before letting the remaining pressure out.  

Remove the beef from the Instant Pot and run the liquid in the pot through a strainer before returning it to the pot.  

Add potatoes, mushrooms and carrots to the pot. Put the lid on the Instant Pot and set for a manual high-pressure time of 6 minutes, allowing for a quick release after the cooking time. Remove vegetables from pot. 

If desired, you can make a gravy out of the liquid by turning on the saute mode and then mixing a couple tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/3 cup of water and then stirring it into the liquid until it thickens.
