  • 3 pound beef chuck roast
  • 1 bottle balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  • optional: sweet potatoes white potatoes, garlic, onion, carrots, celery, parsnips
  • optional to thicken sauce: 1 tablespoon corn starch


  • If your roast is thawed and you would like to sear it before pressure cooking, turn the instant pot to 'saute', and sear sides with a small amount of oil.
  • Add roast to pressure cooker and pour balsamic dressing on all sides.  If you're adding vegetables, place them under the roast.
  • If the roast is frozen, set the instant pot to manual 60 minutes.  If it is thawed, but not seared do manual/45 minutes, if it's seared use manual/40 minutes.
  • When  the time is finished, carefully do a quick pressure release and check to see if it's done.  If the meat is not tender to your liking, turn it back on manual in five - ten minute increments.  The pot should re-pressurize quickly since it's already super hot.
  • If you would like to thicken the drippings for a gravy, create a slurry with cornstarch and a small amount of the roasting liquid, then pour it back in the pot and mix well.
  • Enjoy!
