Perfect Pot Roast

Perfect Pot Roast

Today’s recipe is super simple! I love all the ways you can serve a juicy, tender pot roast! Traditional pot roast dinner with roasted veggies and mashed potatoes with gravy is a classic meal. A dear friend of mine introduced me to Italian Beef sandwiches, which are absolutely delicious! On a recent camping trip I prepared pot roast and had some left over so the next day I sautéd bell peppers, onions, garlic and the left over pot roast to make mouth watering beef nachos. There’s nothing better than simple meals like these!

Perfect Pot Roast


  • Chuck Roast
  • Lipton Onion Soup Recipe
  • 1 cup water
  • salt/pepper

Directions: Place prepared Chuck Roast in the Instant Pot. Pour 1 cup of water over the roast. Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the roast, place the lid on the instant pot, making sure the seal is set to pressure setting, and cook on the beef setting for 70 minutes (for 2 pound roast) or 80 minutes (for 3 pound roast). Remember it will take 20 minutes to build pressure before cooking time begins and around 20 minutes for pressure to release before you can remove the lid safely. Always follow manufacturers instructions when using pressure cookers. I love mine! Some prefer using a crock pot and this recipe can be made with a crock pot on low heat for 8-9 hours. Enjoy with your favorite roasted veggies, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, or nachos!
