Instructions

Place the roast info the bottom of the pressure cooker’s pot.

Place the potatoes and carrots into the pot surrounding the meat.

Microwave the bowl for about a minute, in order to make the mixture easier to dissolve. Whisk the contents of the bowl until it is smooth and no grains or pieces of the dip mix remain.

Pour the liquid into the pot over the meat.

Cover the pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Serve immediately with the remaining broth as an au jus or thicken it with a little corn starch and turn it into a gravy.

    I haven’t had a pot roast in forever. I am going to have to make one now because I think my boys will love it.

    Pot roast is one of my favorite meals. I normally just make it in the crock pot. I’ll have to try it in the instant pot and see if it tastes any better!

    I don’t have one of these instanta pots so will have to use my crockpot which is okay. Fixing a pot roast is always special in our house. One pot meals are easy and delicious.

    A pot roast was the first thing I made with the Instant Pot. It always turns out perfect every time.

    I love me some pot roast! It is usually so easy to make because you just have to put all the ingredients together and let it cook. I have never thought about doing it in the instant pot but I think I will have to try it. It looks great.

    Growing up my mother would make pot roast all of the time. I’m sure a Instant Pot would have been a time saver for her.

    I never get to make pot roasts mainly because I find they take so long to make! But the fact that this one’s made in an Instant Pot… must be so juicy and tender!

    Nice. Another reason why I need an Instant Pot. Looks hearty and filling, perfect for a snowy spring day (no lie!)

    I love making pot roast just like this. One of our favorite dishes especially when I am busy because I can start prepping it in the morning and by dinner, the meat is super tender and the flavor is absorbed by the veggies.

    I’ve made ranch chicken before but not ranch pot roast. This looks like an amazing dinner idea!

    This is one of my favorite pot roast recipes. I usually use either Ranch dressing mix or onion soup mix. Both make for some really tasty pot roast and hardly any mess to clean up.
