Making a frozen roast in the instant pot is such a delicious and fast way to make Chuck Roast compared to a slow cooker.
The root vegetables you choose to use are completely customizable but I highly recommend using some form of potato and celery.
Over the Spoon for:
- affordable ingredients
- protein loaded meal
- fast frozen pot roast
What do you need:
- A frozen chuck roast
- Root vegetables such as onion, potatoes, and celery
- Broth - I like to use beef broth but chicken works as well
Tip: If you are using sweet potatoes they get muuuuuch softer in the instant pot than the oven. My family is a fan of this but if you don't like a really soft potato go with red potatoes.
How to cook frozen roast in the instant pot:
- Start by sautéing onion and garlic on sauté mode.
- Add broth, frozen roast, and bay leaves and pressure cook.
- Add root vegetables and Worchester sauce and cook 10 more minutes.
I LOVE to serve my pot roast with ketchup on top!
You can cook a frozen pot roast in the instant pot in 1 hour of pressure cook time
Since the instant pot can cook meat so quickly you only need to add 15-20 minutes of cooking time.
Root vegetables! Onion, celery, potatoes, and carrots are great options.
If your pot roast is thawed out you can sear each side of the roast after sautéing the vegetables and then cook for about 40 minutes instead of an hour.
I hope you are Over the Spoon for this recipe!
