Laura Pazzaglia, founder of, shows how to cook beef roast in Instant Pot. More details and videos are at


  1. Definitely could use more ingredients. I like turnip and parsnip in mine along with the potatoes and carrots. Mushrooms are said to be good too,and I will have to try them in my next pot roast.

  2. I tried this a few weeks ago and it turned out fairly well. When my husband sliced it and saw no pink I feared the roast would be dry and tough. But it was very tender and moist, which was a pleasant surprise!

  3. Thank you Laura, I was planning to do a chuck roast in the pressure cooker with vegetables. Your excellent presentation helped me to understand the timing issues for the beef time versus the times for the vegetables. Many thanks for your excellent presentation video.

  4. Very nicely done, I enjoyed watching you prepare this roast….. Instead of a lot of potato, I use turnips, parsnips and onions as well…. Not to everyone's taste, but it is what I like….

  5. I don't brown a damn thing. put that sucker in the slow cooker with about 1 cup of water. season it with whatever and let it roast for 50 mins. Perfect meats. I have a cuisinart and only roast meat so I am bias but it doesn't require this much work. BTW. My roast is usually partially frozen with a bit of fat. That fat and a bit of water in the bottom makes a very tender roast.

  6. I used a different recipe. I also browned my meat on each side for 5 minutes, I think next time I may even do 6 or 7.
    My recipe I used was
    *Brown Meat 6-7 Minutes on each side (I used 2 tbs of olive oil). I just seasoned with salt and pepper.
    *While browning mix 2 packets of onion soup mix and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup into 2 cups of water.
    *After the meat has browned, remove it from the cooker and add 1 cup water (or cooking wine). Use a spoon to scrape the yummy stuck on stuff from the bottom up.
    *Put roast back in and pour the mixture onto the roast.
    *Set on meat/stew. I follow the 20 minutes per lb rule.
    *When roast is done put your choice of veggies in. I did my veggies (potatoes, carrots, onion) for 5 since I cut them up rather small.

  7. That was browned? Is it just me or has anybody noticed that it looked quite grey! I am scouring youtube to see if this device truly browns. I am considering this or the Philips Multi-Cooker which Bakes, Sautes, Roasts, Boils, makes Yogurt, Rissotto etc. , Slow cooks up to 12 hours and seems to do everything. It is not a pressure cooking device but can make rice and has a rice setting. Such a debate but I want something that provides many different functions.
