Ninja Foodi Roast

After making our Ninja Foodi roast beef we thought to try a Coca Cola roast! This new pressure cooker air fryer machine did a killer job on it.

Roast in Ninja Foodi

You may have made Slow Cooker Roast Beef and Gravy year after year and you just can’t wrap your head around how it could be done the same in a fraction of the time, it can. The new world of pressure cooking is here and taking storm.

Ninja Foodi Sirloin Roast

There are many parts of the cow that they call roast. Chuck roast is longer and thinner than what you see here. The size and weight we used is listed below and the cook time reflects what would be necessary for it to shred easily.

What is the Ninja Foodi?

It is an air fryer meets a pressure cooker and it is making its mark in the cooking world with a vengeance. This is the Ninja Cooking system we got 

If you already have a pressure cooker you might wonder whether you really need both. Well I can say that air frying has been a game changer for us and cooking dinner.

I highly recommend you having both functions so you can not only make foods tender as ever, but get the outsides crunchy perfect as well. You can grab a recipe book linked above that we love. 😉

Is the Ninja Foodi an air fryer?

The best way to cook a roast in my opinion is in a pressure cooker because it makes it oh so tender in a short amount of time, like this one.

  • Yes it is an air fryer too though.
  • We will be using the pressure cooker function for this Ninja Foodi roast recipe though.
  • I didn’t feel the need to use the air fryer to crisp the top since I wanted it as soft and tender as possible.

Like I said, we used a sirloin tip roast because that is what we had on hand. It is a great cut of meat if you can find it!

  • Our mushroom gravy is easy to take with a can of Coca Cola, cream of mushroom soup and a few packets of goodness.

I will share where you can order those online below so you don’t even need to go to the store.

Ninja Foodi Roast Recipe

How to cook a roast in a pressure cooker

You will want to leave the fat on – it adds to the overall flavor, ours had minimal. Cutting the large piece of meat into several equal pieces will allow it to cook evenly, all the way through to the center and become tender as ever, we cut ours in 4 equal pieces

Liquid is necessary to cook anything in a pressure cooker – we used Coke as the base and added onion and mushroom ingredients to make our gravy so it could all cook together.

  1. Allow the pot to naturally release the pressure COMPLETELY for the tenderest meat and avoid squirting liquid everywhere when it’s released

Don’t expect your pressure cooker roast to come out as it would in the oven cooked in one solid piece and slicing it. Rather it will be so tender you won’t need a knife at all, it will fall apart with your fork.

That is the way we love it anyway so it’s a win win, more like shredded beef texture if you will.

Ninja Foodi Roast Recipe

Pressure Cooker Sirloin Roast

I will start by saying that when I make a gravy I do not over-season or salt it. I prefer to have the taste of the meat come through, and also my husband has high blood pressure so I tend to add just enough salt to enhance the flavor but not overwhelm it.

With that said feel free to increase the amount of garlic salt I suggest. If I can put my two cents in though I would suggest that you use the amount below initially.  Then when you are thickening the gravy you can taste it and add more at that time.

  • It is easier to add seasonings/salt but impossible to remove it once it’s in there….that’s all I’m sayin’.

This is what ours looked like once I took out the pieces and finished thickening our mushroom gravy!

It broke into smaller pieces but still stayed in tact..however it was so tender once I touched it with a fork it broke apart. It was perfect.

How long to cook a roast in a pressure cooker?

This is of course going to depend on the size of it, ours was 5.8 lbs. (I wouldn’t buy one bigger than that).

Ninja Foodi roast recipe

  1. Roast – ours was a 5.8 lb. sirloin roast tip (great cut)
  2. Can of cola
  3. French onion soup mix packet
  4. Dry gravy mix packet
  5. Cream of mushroom
    1. or make homemade cream of mushroom soup
  6. Garlic salt
  7. Soy sauce
  8. Cornstarch + cold water – to thicken gravy at the end

** If yours is smaller adjust accordingly and maybe cut into 3 pcs instead of 4. Cutting it into smaller pieces shortens the cook time overall in order to get it fall apart tender. No need to tenderize the meat beforehand.

how to cook sirloin tip roast

Ninja Foodi roast

  1. Slice your meat into 4 equal pieces and remove string wrapped around it.
  2. Place your meat into your pot.

In a large bowl whisk together your can of soda, onion soup mix packet, soy sauce, garlic salt and dry package of gravy mix. It won’t be completely smooth because of the dehydrated onions but pretty much.

  1. You could use beef broth instead of Coke if you really wanted but this adds a bit of sweetness.
  2. Pour this over your meat and close your lid and steam valve. 

Set to high pressure for 60 minutes. Timing may vary if you piece is a lot larger (which probably won’t fit) or smaller.

  1. Once this is done do not do a quick release. Rather, allow it to release steam naturally which will take 15 minutes – 20ish minutes total.
  2. Remove your meat and allow it to rest
  3. In a bowl put some of the hot liquid from your pot in it with your condensed soup and whisk that together.

Set your Foodi to saute and once it begins to bubble add this mixture in and stir so your gravy can really thicken. If you wanted to add sliced mushrooms at this time you could do so so they would soften.

But there’s another way too! You can make an air fryer roast or Ninja Foodi rump roast as well!


Both ways are fantastic but different in flavor. To use the air crisp method for the one you see above I sliced it in 3 equal pieces so it was thinner. You couldn’t very well cook it as is using this method because the outside would get charred while the middle remained raw.

I created a homemade teriyaki style marinade first, soaked it in the fridge overnight and then cooked it the next day.

  • My husband said it turned out amazing. Give them both a try and see which Ninja Foodi roast recipe you prefer.
  • Forgot to defrost it? Follow the pressure cooker frozen roast directions linked above.

Serve with a side of steamed carrots and potatoes underneath are just the best duo ever.

How long is leftover beef roast good for?

You should refrigerate it in a shallow airtight container or wrap tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Leftover cooked beef will last for 3 to 4 days in the fridge and can be used in many recipes such as:

Instead of ham you can make our leftover turnovers with this beef. If you’ve never made these before they’re the best, and your kids can help you make them too.

  • Whisk together your cola, onion soup mix, dry gravy mix packet, soy sauce and garlic salt so it is lumpy but mixed well.
  • Remove string ties from roast (if yours has them and you want it to fall apart while cooking, if you want to keep in tact more to slice leave them on). Slice your roast into 4 equal pieces (so it cooks evenly) and put inside your pressure cooker.
  • Pour soup mixture on top of roast so it is well coated.
  • Close your pressure cooker lid (lid for Ninja Foodi that isn’t connected) and close your steam valve.
  • Turn machine on, push your pressure cook button, high temperature for 60 minutes. (time appropriate for a 5.5 approx size roast to cook, cut into 4 pcs.)
  • Allow to naturally release completely (or else stuff will spray everywhere), then open your lid. (this took about 30 min.)
  • To make a thicker gravy remove your meat and set your pot to saute.
  • In a small bowl whisk together 1/2 cup of the hot liquid in your pot + your can of condensed soup. Add this into your pot and allow to bubble.
  • If you want it thicker whisk in a bowl 2 tbsp of cornstarch + 3 tbsp cold water until smooth and add into your pot once it begins to bubble. Keep in mind it will thicken a lot once it cools and sits.
  • Taste gravy as it is thickening and add more salt if desired.
    Return meat to pot so it stays moist, shred in pot or slice and serve smothered in gravy!

I received a Ninja Foodi GRILL for xmas…so it doesn’t have the “pressure” cooker option, but it does have a “bake” option. Does anyone know if I could make this recipe in mine and if so, how long I would cook it? It sounds DELICIOUS!

No the grill is totally different, you'll need the Foodi without the grill function to pressure cook this

What time for a 2.98lb roast?

I’ve never made a beef roast but definitely want to try this. My roast is only 2 pounds should I cut the pressure time in 1/2?

Why use such unhealthy ingredients ( coke, packaged gravy mix, canned soup, onion soup mix)? There are so many options such as fresh herbs and other natural seasonings as well as natural broths and even red wine.

It may be expedient but highly disappointing in terms of health. There are toxins and preservatives in your recommended ingredients. Coke, for example, can remove tar from your car because of its phosphoric content. Check it out! Some of the preservatives in your other ingredients have unhealthy preservatives.

Sorry Justine! Perhaps you can revise your recipe to something healthy.

with the roast using either cooking method can you add canned potatoes and carrots during the cooking?
