  • Turn pressure cooker to saute mode and add olive oil. Add roast when hot.
  • Brown each side, turn pot OFF, remove meat from pot and deglaze the pot (add 1/2 c. of your beef broth and scrape the bottom well to remove all stuck on meat).
  • Return meat to pot, add onions, seasonings and rest of broth.
  • Close lid and steam valve. Set to high pressure for 60 minutes. (timing is average but varies slightly depending on size and thickness of meat piece you have)
  • Do a natural release for 20 minutes, then let out rest of steam.
  • Add potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. Put lid back on and close steam valve.
  • Set to high pressure for 6 minutes, quick release when done.
  • Remove vegetables and meat. If you want to make gravy leave liquid in pot, set to saute and whisk together in a small bowl 2 tbsp. cornstarch with 3 tbsp cold water until smooth and add in. Stir until it thickens, turn pot off.
