Pressure-Cooker Pot Roast

Recipe photo courtesy of Marcus Nilsson

With an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, the classic Sunday afternoon pot roast can be on the table in under two hours -- without ever turning on your oven. We seasoned this one with North African ingredients -- dates, olives, and oranges -- but remained loyal to the traditional American chuck roast, which, like other inexpensive cuts, braises well. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Pressure Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).




Cook's Notes

If your chuck roast has enough fat on it, you can omit the oil for searing.

Serve with potatoes (mashed or boiled and buttered), egg noodles, or couscous.

    This was a great recipe! The orange added the perfect about of sweetness. I used an instant pot on high for 60 minutes. Very easy and the whole family loved it. I added a sliced onion. Next time, I will add mushrooms.
