Easiest Instant Pot Pot Roast Recipe
I know that when you see “Instant Pot Recipe” you probably already figured that it would be easy. But I am telling you – I do believe this Instant Pot Pot Roast Recipe is about as easy as it gets. I know this because it was so simple and quick to make, we made it on two different nights during our big huge summer road trip to Yellowstone. This recipe was simple enough to prep the veggies ahead of time, dump everything in the Instant Pot, enjoy time with the kids on the campground playground, and then eat a savory and delicious dinner that had cooked itself in just under an hour.
I have this Instant Pot and it has become a staple, not just in our kitchen, but now we take it on camping trips too! I love how we can have the taste and quality of a slow cooked meal in so little time.
We knew that we wanted to have this meal twice during our vacation, so the night before we left home, I prepped the veggies (enough for two meals). I put each meal’s veggies in a gallon freezer bag and stacked the bags in the refrigerator. We bought a roast at ALDI before we left home (one big enough for two dinners) and added half of the roast to the Instant Pot each night.
Ingredients (for 1 meal):
1 bag baby carrots (rinsed)
4-5 medium red potatoes (rinsed, halved)
4 medium yellow onions (peeled, halved)
1-2 lb roast
2-3 cups vegetable broth
1 packet pot roast seasoning
How to make:
1. Put all veggies in Instant Pot.
2. Place roast on top of veggies.
3. Add vegetable broth.
4. Sprinkle seasoning on top.
5. Close Instant Pot and set to “Meat/Stew” mode. Set timer for 30 minutes.
That’s it! We let the IP natural release the pressure for a few minutes and then popped it onto quick release to speed up the process.
The end result was DELICIOUS!
