    Great! I doubled the liquid to 4 cups broth for my 8quart instant pot and added 15 minutes cooking time for altitude (I’m at 7000 feet) — turned out perfectly!

    very basic recipe but delicious, I add more herbs and more potatoes but this is a great recipe to build your own off of.

    The vegetables for this weren’t too good so I decided to cut them out for my second recipe and go with oven roasted WONDERFUL recipe

    Came out well, I did however add a lipton onion mushrrom soup/dip mix to my broth. Id say that without the additional flavoring, it could have turned out bland. cook time in the insta pot was accurate, roast came out super tender and moist.

    This is the easiest pot roast recipe I have found! It was delicious and the most tender meat I’ve made in an instant pot. Highly recommend adding the flour at the end for the gravy consistency!

    Awesome! I added my own rub to each side before browning and it was super! 👍🏻👍🏻

    I cooked this in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours instead of an instant pot, it’s simple and very tasty. I liked the flavor the fresh rosemary brought.

    Overall, quite good. I’d prefer more herbs and flavor so perhaps I’ll season the meat more, and/or add some garlic next time. The carrots also became quite mushy. Not sure how to prevent that. The gravy was quite excellent. Made some cornbread to go with it, which was a great substitute for the biscuits I had originally planned.

    The flavor it did have was good but the meat was dry, followed cook times and release directions.

    It turned out well not to complicated

    I followed this recipe exactly as it was written. The pot roast turned out dry and tough, and I do not recommend you make this dish for yourself or your family; only make this recipe if you’re in a college dorm room or on a camping trip and space is limited. Pressure cookers aren’t meant to cook post roasts. I will from now on only cook chicken breast (for tacos), rice, mashed potatoes, and other meals that do well in a pressure cooker.

    Won’t be eating until later, but it came together quickly and easily, and didn’t rely on tomatoes, which is a nice change.

    Super easy - I pricked the meat with a knife before seasoning with S&P and a garlic herb blend, then seared it. I subbed red wine for the beef stock - we were camping, so I didn't have fresh herbs, subbed dried thyme, 1 bay leaf, and dried basil. Instead of whole carrots, I used 1/2 a Costco bag of the baby carrots. Was met with rave reviews.

    Turned out very tender, but needed more seasoning. Potato’s & carrots were just right.

    turned out great! we just mashed the potatoes- they were super tender and had liquid in them so they mashed easily. we made the gravy.

    it turned out really well! a tip tho would be to end it a little earlier (like 45 min to 1 hour) that way it's still moist)

    Amazing! Modified by also adding onion soup mix and adding the veggies for 10 minutes.
