Instant Pot {Electric Pressure Cooker} Italian Pot Roast

I received an Instant Pot Electronic Pressure Cooker last year as a gift. Since then, I’ve been working diligently to create delicious dinners – all in a fraction of the time of the conventional methods. Since my readers love my Mom’s Crock Pot Pot Roast, I wanted to build on that comfort food love and turn a classic Italian pot roast into this Italian-Style Instant Pot [paid link] Pot Roast. With under 10-ingredients, this dinner is as yummy as it is easy to prepare.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 lb beef chuck roast
  • 3 cups (24-ounces) Bertolli Rustic Cut Pasta Sauce, Roasted Garlic Marinara
  • 1/2 cup sweet Red wine [See Note 1]
  • 2 bay leaves
  • pinch of red pepper flakes [See Note 2]
  • salt and pepper , to taste

Instructions
 

  • Place beef roast down in a 6-quart Instant Pot or Electric Pressure Cooker. If desired, seer on all sides for color.
  • Mix tomato sauce with red wine and pour on top. Add bay leaves.
  • Secure lid and set lid to seal. Set on Manual with the warming feature off (press manual button twice on Instant Pot to turn warming off) for 60 minutes. (Note: It will take approximately 15 minutes for pot to reach full pressure before the 60 minute timer will start.)
  • Let Instant Pot naturally release (do not use the quick release) for at least 15-20 minutes before quick releasing. I personally prefer to let it completely naturally release. Using the quick release can cause tough meat.

Notes

  1. Wine may be replaced with water, if desired. This will result in a flavor loss.
  2. Red pepper flakes are optional and may be omitted without substitution.
Notes on the Perfect Instant Pot Roast
  • We used a 6 quart Instant Pot to make this recipe. Using an electric pressure cooker is a great convenience in the kitchen, but ALWAYS follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for safety.
  • If using a smaller pot, you may need to reduce the recipe to avoid overflow.
  • DO NOT Quick Release this recipe immediately after cooking. Also, DO NOT EVER cover the vent of your electric pressure cooker.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.

  1. Hello this recipe looks great. I have a chuck roast approximately half the size in this recipe. How long should I cook it. I would like to add carrots and potatoes but think the veggies should be cooked separately. Can you help with a suggestion on how long to cook my smaller roast.

    • Hi James,
      I haven’t tried this myself so I cannot definitely say but I have read others say they have had much success with a 1.5 pound roast for 30-minutes with a natural release. I hope this helps.
      Let me know how this turns out!

      Thanks for stopping in to ask!
      Ronda
