I was hired by Instant Pot to make a few videos, here’s one where I show how to use the Instant Pot to make a one pot meal with a beef roast and two veg! I use the “phase-in” method – adding ingredients according to their cooking time- to ensure the vegetables don’t turn to mush and keep the carrots whole so they can hold-up to the cooking time the potatoes need to cook.

  1. I generally add whole corn on the cob to my pot roast… Should I split the phase in of the veggies to add the corn, or do you think it would be okay just on top? I use baby carrots so I’m pretty sure they don’t need 10 minutes either…

  2. I cooked this one last night and thought it was unsuccessful. The whole carrots and cubed potatoes were way over cooked for my taste – virtually mushy!
    The sauce was bland, a bit strange and unbalanced.
    I would not make this again. My husbands who loves meat thought it tasted too ‘meaty’!
    I like to follow the recipe to the letter the first time and
    then modify. I would have added garlic, onion
    maybe bay leaf – maybe a touch of vinegar and lots if pepper – definitely salt.

    1. Thanks Toni!! I read your comment before making and your suggestions made sense so I added all except vinegar. My family LOVED it! Very flavorful.

  3. Made this last night with a grass fed beef round roast and it was amazing. The sauce was to die for!!!
