Bucket O' Gravy Pot Roast

 Serves: 10+    |     Prep: 5 min     |     Cook: 2 hrs 10 min     |     Ready: 2 hrs 45 min


1 (3-4 lb) chuck roast
1-2 T. olive oil
2 packets powdered gravy mix (low
     sodium or regular)
1 packet powdered au jus mix
1/2 onion, cut into chunks
3 cups of water


Add on another 20 minutes of high pressure cooking AT LEAST per each additional pound.

*Christine & Steven serve this the next day in breakfast tacos with salsa. Much like breakfast tacos with brisket, but a lot less work.


For the Instant Pot, set your pot to sauté and sear the roast on both sides in olive oil.

Place onion chunks under the roast in the pot. Add in all of the packages followed by the water.

Close the lid and seal, and make sure that the value is set on SEALING.

Use the manual button and then set for 2 hours.

Let it release naturally (about 24-26 minutes)

Remove and serve in the bucket of gravy. For thicker gravy add a blended mixture of flour and water at the ratio of 1 to 4. When adding to pot stir constantly to avoid lumps.
