Instant Pot Roast Beef. I almost hate to say there’s a recipe for this because it’s so unbelievably simple to make. The Instant Pot electric pressure cooker does almost all of the work, which means you don’t have to keep coming back into the kitchen to check or turn the meat. In fact, I left the house once the cooking cycle completed (which takes about 20 minutes start to finish give or take) and the Instant Pot switched to keep warm. Basically, the heaviest lifting you will have to do is actually lifting the roast. Cooking gluten-free? No problem! Since the only other ingredient besides the roast beef is two seasonings, if your seasonings are gluten-free then your roast beef is gluten-free. When preparing the roast this way you will wind up with about 1.5 cups of beef broth, you can serve that right over the top like an au jus, or if you’re having potatoes as a side then serve it over them. I prepared this roast to be medium rare. If you let it rest longer then I did your roast will be less pink obviously. Here’s how I make it.
