This was one of the best pot roasts I’ve ever made. I only used the broth and meat and then once cooked I added veggies. Simplicity is the key!
Finally, everything turned out wonderful. That said, 2 hours is only cooking time. Does not include pot warm up each time or 30 minute Natural Release after adding veggies. Timing (total) is 4 hours, not including any prepping, transferring, plating, etc.
Also, prep your packaged chuck roast!! Remove meat from store packaging, cut off any meat that may keep frozen meat chunk from fitting into pot, then place into a freezer bag and freeze. Impossible to put it into pot otherwise.
I made this with a few changes. Turned out great with a great taste.
Good tasty recipe, but cooking time is not accurate at all. Plan on spending 4 hours until it ready. As itsannspot stated, recipe does not include warm up, or keep warm times. Actually takes about the same amount of time as a crock pot on high, but the crock pot doesn’t have to be interrupted. Kind of a let down.
I agree with the other user that said “simplicity is the key”. The meat is so tender it falls apart, and has a rich, beefy flavor. Thanks!
This turned out to be the tastiest pot roast I’ve ever had.
Used a 2 1/2 lb chuck roast. I also was making for a crowd so I added some small potatoes, carrots, and a stalk of celery. And we are mushroom lovers here, sp I also added a package of quartered mushrooms. This was my 1st meal, breaking in my new Instant Pot. Ther meat came out so tender after 1 hour of cooking! I have a new friend in the kitchen!
This recipe was well worth the little bit of extra work to make it. Everything came out perfect. I will make this again.
