Here is the recipe for the One-Pot Instant Pot Pot Roast & Mashed Potatoes (say that 10 times fast!):
Instant Pot Pot Roast & Mashed Potatoes
- 3 pound beef chuck roast
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- other seasoning to taste we love Trader Joe's African Smoke Seasoning
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup marsala wine
- 1 can 16 oz beef broth
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3 sprigs thyme
- 1 cup baby carrots
- 2 cups yellow onion, chopped into fourths
- 6 large russet potatoes, peeled
- Pour olive oil into pan and heat on stove top at medium-high heat
- rub salt, pepper & other seasoning to taste on beef chuck roast
- brown pot roast in olive oil - about 5 minutes on each side. Make sure and brown all 4 sides of the roast as this helps trap the flavor into the meat
- add the remaining ingredients into the instant pot (except the potatoes) and gently stir ingredients together
- add the pot roast to the center of the instant pot
- place the instant pot cooking rack above the roast - use the high legs so that your rack doesn't touch the roast and other ingredients below.
- place the peeled whole russet potatoes on the rack
- cook on manual high for 35 minutes - make sure and follow your manufacturer instructions for heating and cooling your instant pot
- remove the potatoes - you can get our amazing mashed potatoes recipe here
- Once complete if you want to make the juice into a gravy, strain all the juice from your instant pot, slowly add corn starch while stirring until you get the consistency desired
