Lazy Salisbury- Instant Pot

salisburylazylazysalisbury

10 frozen Beef Patties
2c Beef Broth (I use heated water + Cubes, dissolved)
Few good splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
1tsp Yellow Mustard
1lb. Mushrooms, sliced

8T McCormick’s Brown Gravy Powder

In the Instant Pot, add Broth, Worcestershire, and Mustard. Whisk some. Add in patties. Top with Mushrooms. Pressure Cook with seal on for about 18-20 minutes. Remove Patties. Add in Brown Gravy Powder, whisk. Bring to boil using Sautee. Add Patties back in. Use Slow Cooker Button on Low for about 10 minutes.

Serve as is, over Vegis (Celery/Carrots/Potatoes or Peas/Brussels), or Mashed Potatoes, or Biscuits.

McCormick’s Brown Gravy Mix is 4carbs/1T. Use whole beef patties (No breadcrumbs)/0Carbs. That’s about 7 carbs/Serving (2patties+Mushrooms per serving)

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.

Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes:
6-8 Potatoes, quartered.
1c Beef Broth (Cube dissolved in heated Water)

Butter
lil reserved Broth from Instant Pot
Sour Cream
Parsley
Fresh Chives
Add grate into Instant Pot. Top grate with Potatoes. Pour over Broth. Pressure cook for about 15-20minutes. Release. Pour out juice, reserving it. Remove grate. Add in potatoes. Add in Butter, a lil reserved Broth, Sour Cream, Chives, Parsley. Mix with blender until consistency desired. Adding in Reserved Juices/Sour Cream as you go.

(Keto version: Skip Potatoes and serve with Vegetables (Carrots, Celery, Peas, Onions, Mushrooms) and for bread, use Joseph’s LOW CARB Pita Bread. Brown each side in a lil Butter on Skillet. Season with Garlic Powder or Garlic Salt.). You can also top onto Joseph’s Low Carb Pita Wrap, add some Cheese. Brown each side in Butter Sprayed skillet. Sprinkle with Garlic Powde. Serve with side of Vegis of choice.
