Instructions

  1. Melt the fat on high and, if using an Instant Pot and you have an extra 15 minutes, brown the beef roast on all sides for about 3 minutes each.
  2. If using onions, mushrooms, or peppers, brown them in the fat next. (I don’t bother removing the roast, just stir the veggies around it, but you may remove to a plate.)
  3. If using a deglaze option, that goes in next, and stir around for a minute.
  4. Carefully pour in the liquid and return the roast if you removed it.
  5. Nestle other veggies around the roast.
    • If using green beans, steam separately unless you like overcooked green beans.
  6. Sprinkle the herbs, spices, garlic, salt, and pepper all over the roast and veggies.
  7. Cook according to the following directions:
    • Instant Pot sliced roast beef: 25 minutes per pound, quick release and test temp for 145F, add 5-10 minutes more pressure if necessary.
    • Instant Pot shredded shoulder roast: 30 minutes per pound, natural pressure release until falling apart. Add 10 minutes more at pressure if necessary.
    • Slow cooker shredded beef: 8-10 hours on low or 5+ hours on high.
  8. Add the acid right at the end to the juices.
  9. See serving ideas in the chart and enjoy!
