Yummy Instant Pot Pot Roast with Rosemary and Garlic

instant pot pot roast cooked

When it comes to meal prep, you all know how much I love to use my INSTANT POT! This Instant Pot Pot roast recipe is quick to make, has simple ingredients and the flavor is to die for. When you add rosemary and garlic to any dish it’s going to taste amazing and this recipe will not disappoint.

If you have an Instant Pot, but you’re too intimidated to use it, I encourage you to get it out and USE IT! If you don’t have one yet, I highly recommend you GET ONE! There is nothing to fear. It’s only going to make your meal prep so much quicker and more enjoyable. I actually have two pots and often use BOTH of them in one meal.

Check out my other Instant Pot recipes HERE.

Rosemary and thyme are wonderful herbs to grow in your garden. Here are some tips for growing these herbs.

This Instant Pot roast is an easy meal to make because there is little preparation and once you have everything in the pot, you can walk away and go do other things while it cooks. Your house is going to smell fabulous.

If you choose to make gravy, the drippings after cooking will make savory, yummy gravy infused with rosemary. You can add vegetables (potatoes and carrots, etc.) if you choose.

  • 1 white or yellow onion
  • A small handful of fresh thyme

  • While it is heating up, salt and pepper one side of the roast.
  • Brown both sides for about 5 minutes each (please don’t skip the browning step – it makes all the difference!) Searing the meat will help make the juices/gravy more flavorful and create nice, seared edges on your meat. 
  • Add the coconut oil to the pot, let it melt, and then add the roast, seasoned side down.
  • Salt and Pepper the other side of the roast while it is browning.

  • Pour the broth over the meat.
  • Top with onion, thyme, rosemary, and garlic.
instant pot pot roast veggies
  • Add the carrots and potatoes to the top. The veggies will get a little mushy, but I like them this way. 

If you prefer more crisp veggies, do a QUICK RELEASE 10 MINUTES BEFORE SET TIME, and add veggies. Reseal and cook another 10 minutes. Then natural release as usual. 

Instant Pot Lasagna valve
  • Apply the lid and secure it in place. Flip the steam valve to pressure.

  • Now set your Instant Pot to Meat/Stew and adjust the time to 65 minutes.

  • Once the NATURAL RELEASE of about 20-25 minutes. The pot will start counting the time showing an “L” and the time. Make sure you let it natural release, this is what makes it tender!
  • Careful removing your chuck roast – it will be falling apart. If by chance the roast is not as tender as you’d like. Bring it up to pressure for a bit more. SOME meat, especially grass-fed organic meat may take a little longer.
  • Remove the roast to a cutting board. Slice or shred. You can add the meat back to the instant pot with your potatoes and carrots, or you can transfer your roast to a serving tray with the potatoes and carrots separately.

  • If you like a thicker gravy, remove the roast and vegetables, strain the juice and add it to a saucepan. Mix 1 tablespoon of corn starch/arrowroot to 3 tablespoons of water and add to juice in the pot and heat and stir until thick.

    Yummy, yum!

Enjoy!

Rosemary Garlic Fries – Crispy and Baked to Perfection

rosemary garlic fries

Who doesn’t love a good crispy french fry?  When you add a sprinkle of rosemary and some garlic, oh baby, these rosemary garlic fries are seriously the BEST! No more wimpy, flimsy, and tasteless potatoes. These crispy fries are baked to PERFECTION!

Many of you know, I have a deep love for ROSEMARY and I use this herb frequently in my cooking and enjoy its beauty in my garden. If you don’t have a rosemary plant in your garden, I highly recommend you get one and get it planted. You can read more about it HERE.

The SECRET in getting a crisp fry is soaking the potatoes in water and cooking at a high temperature. Potatoes have a lot of starch and for extra crispy french fries, you need to remove some of that starch. You can do so by soaking the cut potatoes in water.

Ingredients

  • 6 medium russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into ½ inch sticks
  • 4 tablespoons olive/avocado oil
  • 4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

I have to share with you my latest favorite KITCHEN-GADGET-GOTO. This garlic press has made mincing garlic so much easier. I love that it is so easy to clean and that there is no wasted garlic.

Oh, the comfort of mashed potatoes! If you enjoy the flavor of rosemary, and garlic, and mashed potatoes, then you are going to love this Rosemary & Garlic Mashed Potatoes recipe. It is easy, of course, because cooking in the Instant Pot is always a pleasure.

I have had my Instant Pot for several years, and still, use it almost every day. Now that is one appliance worth keeping. (I have two). If you don’t have one, get one! If you have one and haven’t started using it, start using it. So many people get an Instant Pot and never start using it because they are intimidated.

Rosemary is one of my most favorite herbs. Not only does it smell fabulous, it really does enhance the flavor of so many dishes. For this recipe I use fresh, when I have it available, but if you don’t have fresh, just use dried rosemary.
