Easy Pressure Cooker Pot Roast


3.25 lb beef bottom round roast * 1x brown gravy mix packet * 1x Italian dressing packet * 1x ranch seasoning packet * 16 oz beef broth * 12 oz baby carrots * 4 large potatoes * olive oil


Put the contents of the seasoning packets into a small bowl and whisk together. Turn the pot to saute. Cover the bottom of the pot with a thin layer of olive oil. Rub the seasoning mixture on all sides of the roast. Place the roast into the post and brown all sides. Remove the roast and set aside on a plate. Add about one third of the beef broth to the pot. Use a silicone cooking spoon to deglaze the bottom of the pot and loosen any seasonings. Add the remainder of the broth to the pot. Return the roast to the pot. Put the lid onto the pot and close to seal. Set the pressure cooker to cook for 25 minutes on manual high pressure. Clean the potatoes and chop them into large chunks. Alternatively, you could use little potatoes and not peel them at all. Once the cooking time has finished do a quick pressure release. Add the potatoes and carrots to the pot. Recover the pot and close to seal. Set the pressure cooker to cook on manual high pressure for 10 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then do a quick pressure release. Move the meat and vegetables from the pot to a serving bowl. Allow the meat to rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve with some of the drippings from the pot. I like the drippings just the way they are but if you prefer them a little thicker you could try adding in a little flour or corn starch. Enjoy!
