Instant Pots are a kitchen tool that is definitely not essential to cook delicious meals, but really helps with convenience. These pressure cookers have become really popular in recent years thanks to their ability to cook meat and other foods to perfection in a fraction of the time that it would take using another method. The hands-off cooking experience leaves you feeling like the meal almost cooked itself by magic. If you ask me, these handy appliances are definitely worth the investment, although I still often use my crock pot or oven braise in a dutch oven. It’s worth noting that this recipe and any other one that calls for an Instant Pot can easily be adjusted for using a different cooking method. Between premium meat delivery straight to your doorstep and time saving appliances like Instant Pots, cooking with quality meat has never been easier.

Did you know you can even cook a frozen roast in an Instant Pot? Just add 25 minutes to the cooking time. And although this recipe is for the perfect pot roast, we have so many other great slow cook selections available through our online meat delivery.
The chuck roast comes from the shoulder and upper neck area of the animal. It’s a cut of meat that’s got plenty of fat and is full of delicious, meaty flavor. These roasts should be cooked low and slow to achieve a tender texture. If you cooked one quickly with high heat like a steak, it would be very tough. An Instant Pot speeds up this process by using pressure to do the cooking in a shorter amount of time. What a great invention. To use a crockpot for this recipe, cook the roast for eight hours on low. To use a dutch oven, bake for two hours at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. All of these methods will yield great results – the Instant Pot is just the quickest.
Searing the roast before cooking is an optional step. If you’re in a rush, you can skip this step and the pot roast will still be delicious. Searing will create a flavorful, browned crust on the outside of the roast. Our roasts are so good all on their own, there’s no need to worry about how it’ll turn out if you don’t take the time to sear it. Definitely add a roast to your cart next time you’re ordering from our online meat delivery – it’ll be a new favorite.
