Pot Roast And Potatoes

Ingredients (Makes 6 Servings)

  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) boneless beef chuck-eye (or regular chuck) roast, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, rinsed and minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 pounds small (1 to 3 inch) Yukon Gold potatoes

Instructions

  1. Pat beef dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Select Browning and add oil to the cooking pot. When hot, brown roast on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove to a platter when browned.
  2. Add the chopped onions to the oil in the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and mushrooms and cook, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes. Stir in broth and simmer until slightly reduced about 3 minutes. Scrape up all the browned bits stuck on the bottom of the pot while broth is simmering.
  3. Put the browned pot roast and any accumulated juices into the pressure cooking pot and place potatoes on top of the meat. Lock lid in place.
  4. Select High Pressure and set the timer for 90 minutes. When beep sounds, turn off pressure cooker and allow pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, use a quick pressure release to release any remaining pressure.
  5. Carefully remove the lid. Transfer potatoes and beef to serving dishes. Tent beef loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
  6. While beef is resting, strain juices and skim excess fat from the juices. Return juices to the pressure cooking pot, select Sauté and thicken juices as desired to make gravy. (I used about 1/4 cup of flour mixed with 1/4 cup of cold water to thicken the gravy.)
