This recipe uses an Instant Pot to make a savory and tender pot roast in under 2 hours. This is a basic, simple recipe and the results are the same as slow cooking it in a crockpot all day.

  3. Heat a pan on medium-high. Add a tablespoon of oil.
  4. Once the pan is hot, sear the roast on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until browned.
  5. Place the roast into the Instant Pot. Deglaze the pan with some beef or chicken stock, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spatula and pour into the Instapot.
  6. Cut an onion into big chunks and add to the pot.
  7. Pour in about 1-2 cups of stock and 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Do more broth if you like to have broth and less if do not.
  8. Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes, then do a quick pressure release.
