Instant Pot Mississippi Pot Roast
I have no idea why this is called an Instant Pot Mississippi Pot Roast (I get the Instant Pot bit) as the flavors are not unique to Mississippi, but what I do know is that this is a meal with incredible flavor and I have no doubt it will become one of your go-to meals in no time. Looking to impress your friends and family by serving up a meal to die for? Well, look no further as this Mississippi Pot Roast is simply out of this world.
The beauty of this recipe lies in the ingredients- it’s not complicated or does it have tons of steps. The Instant Pot is what makes all the difference with minimal effort and time investment. It also makes for a tender, juicy roast that can be enjoyed by everyone at your table.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have.
Start by pressing the saute option on the Instant Pot and heat the vegetable oil
- Add the meat to the oil once it is hot and cook for 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes, turn the meat over and continue to cook on the other side for a further 5 mins. If you need to add more oil, add a little more now.
- Remove meat from the Instant Pot and set aside.
- Slowly add beef broth to the Instant Pot stir to loosen up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pot (the brown bits is full of flavor).

If you prefer thicker juice you can can do the following:
