Most Tender Roast Ever (Cooked in the Instant Pot)

Days can be hectic and smelling dinner cooking as you walk in the door after a long, hard day is a devine feeling. Need an impressive dinner without much prep? This is the recipe for you!

My son is an excellent cook and it is a rare occasion when we get to spend time cooking together. We teamed up on this recipe to create the most tender roast ever, cooked in the Instant Pot.

Adjust amount of roast, potatoes, carrots according to the number of people you will serve.

Ingredients:
Roast 3 – 4 pound
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups beef broth (divided)
1 cup water
5 carrots (cut off ends, slice into large pieces)
9 potatoes (medium size)
1 medium to large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic (2 whole, 4 minced)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried cilantro

Note: Prep work can be completed the night before (if you have to leave home early) or early in the morning (on the day you will serve roast).

Instructions:
Set Instant Pot on Saute. Put 3 tablespoons olive oil in bottom. Brown roast on both sides. Turn Instant Pot off.

Add 2 cups beef broth. Set release valve in the “sealing” position. High Pressure for 45 minutes. Then “natural pressure” release.

While roast is cooking, chop onion, wash carrots and potatoes. Do not peel skins for several reasons: most nutrients are in or just below the skin; it will prevent them from getting mushy.

After pressure on Instant Pot has gone down, open lid and add:
5 carrots (cut off ends, slice into large pieces)
10 potatoes
1 onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic (2 whole, 4 minced)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried cilantro
1 cup beef broth
1 cup water
Stir well.

If you are doing prep work the night before, put interior pot of Instant Pot in refrigerator now. If doing prep work on the day you will serve roast, proceed with instructions.

Set release valve in the open or closed position. Set Instant Pot on crock pot button for 7 hours (or desired time of your choice).

Enjoy having dinner prepared and ready when you walk in the door!
