An Instant Pot is an incredibly fast way to cook when you are busy and don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Making a pot roast takes time in the oven, about three to four hours to get it fork tender, but with an instant pot you can be ready to eat in about an hour. That is total cooking time, not total time you have to be in the kitchen. Once you get it going, you can walk away. Love it!
I added plenty of vegetable sides to make a healthy dinner. The bed of cabbage soaked up all the juices, and we had carrots and broccoli as well. You choose! 🙂
Instant Pot Chuck Roast
3 lb. Chuck Roast (cubed into 1 1/2″ chunks)
1 Cup of Broth
1/2 Cup of Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1/2 Cup of Coconut Aminos here
2 Leeks, Sliced into rounds
3 Tablespoons of Umami Blend (recipe here)
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1 Tablespoon of Minced Fresh Ginger
Directions: Cube the Chuck after you have seasoned both sides with Umami Herb Blend. Put the Beef into the instant pot. Whisk together the orange juice, coconut aminos, broth, honey and ginger. Pour over the beef and add the leeks. Place the top on your instant pot and seal the steam valve at the top. Press the Meat/Stew selection, and you are done. The chuck will cook for 35 minutes, then do a cool down. Release the steam valve, and after the steam is released, remove the top and that’s it! You have a delicious, fork tender roast in a third of the time!
