Instant Pot Chuck Roast

Using a pressure cooker to cook a chuck roast dramatically reduces the cook time, and the meat comes out perfectly fork-tender every time!

Let’s get started!

This Instant Pot Chuck Roast recipe uses the drippings to make a creamy mushroom gravy so nothing goes to waste.


1. Cut any excessive fat off of the roast and discard it. Pat the roast dry on both sides with a clean, dry paper towel. Season both sides of the roast generously with salt and pepper.


2. 1. Heat the butter, ghee, or oil in the insert of your instant pot set on saute (or in a cast iron pan over medium heat until shimmering). Add the roast and sear until well browned on each side (about 5 minutes per side). Remove the seared roast and set aside on a clean plate.


3. Add the onions and saute for 3-5 minutes, or until tender and translucent.
