Instant Pot, Pot Roast

potroast1potroast2
Was BEST Pot Roast, EVER!

3.3 lb. Beef Chuck Roast
Salt and Pepper entire Roast

2c Beef Broth (I did Heated Water+Broth Cubes, dissolved)
1 Fresh Garlic Clove, minced
1 small Onion, cut up
1/2tsp Ginger Powder (DO NOT skip!)

1T Tomato Paste
Essential Value Au Jus Packet

Salt and Pepper Roast. Allow to sit at room temp for 20minutes. BUTTER SPRAY Instant Pot. Mix together Broth, Garlic, Onion, and Ginger. Add Broth Mix to Instant Pot. Add in Grate, place meat on top.
I pressure cooked for 40-45min. for 3.3 pound Beef Roast. And, natural released for about 20 minutes. RESERVE JUICES!
Butter spray (Or, Butter) skillet. In skillet, saute 1T Tomato Paste (Yes, do this!). Add in Au Jus pkt. and 2c of Reserved Instant Pot Juices *SEE NOTES. Bring to Boil, then, simmer 3-5minutes.
Shred up Meat, add to Sauce in skillet. Cook down juices some. Allow to set few minutes.
– We served with side of Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes (Below), Croissants, and Carrots+Peas. Photo shows buns, BUT, Croissants are most tasty. Or, make Pot Roast-wiches.
*Notes: Our Au Jus Packet called for 2c Water and 1 Au Jus Packet. Follow your Packet’s Instructions, EXCEPT, you will be using Reserved Instant Pot Juices instead of the water the packet calls for.

TIP:
For the Pot Roast Au Jus Packet, we only needed 2c of Reserved Juice. I still had an extra 2 cups of Instant Pot Juices leftover. From juices that built up. I froze it in a Cup Size Muffin Pan. Then, I added them to a freezer bag. Will make for great cooking in future recipes that calls for Broth.

–Broth Cubes for Boiling Potatoes

1/4tsp Curry
1/8tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp +1/8tsp Coriander
1/4tsp +1/8tsp Cumin
1/8 Ground Black Pepper
1tsp Dried Cilantro

Wontons *See Notes

Boil whole potatoes in chicken broth with bay leaf. (I used about 3c Water + 3 Chicken Broth Cubes, crushed). Once soft, remove potatoes. Mash potatoes, well, adding in 1/4c of leftover juice you used to boil potatoes (Broth and Bay Leaf juice).
*SEE NOTES. In skillet, add 1/4tsp hot chili oil. Add in chorizo and bay leaf. Cook til all’s browned. Add in vegis and seasons. Cook a minute or 2. Mix in mashed potatoes, heating another minute or two. Remove bay leaf.
Add a packed plump tablespoon to wonton. Seal edges. Butter spray baking dish. Add wontons, bake 375, uncovered, for 7-11 minutes. Once bottoms are cooked, or LIGHTLY browned… Broil 1 minute, to cook tops.

*Notes: Making for easier cooking- Prep the seasons first. Adding all the measured seasons to a small bowl, then sprinkle over when needed. This helps you from running all over the place, finding and measuring out everything, at time of cooking.
Phyllo Dough could be used instead of wontons. Deep frying, also an option. We use wontons and skip deep frying, thus lower calories and lower carbohydrates.
