Instant Pot Shredded Beef and Gravy


Use a frozen chuck roast to make this Instant Pot Shredded Beef & Gravy! It's is a comforting and classic meal that's made with just five ingredients!

  prep time: cook time: total time: 95 MIN 

INGREDIENTS


1 frozen chuck roast
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth
1 (10.5 ounce) can Golden Mushroom Soup
1 (10.5 ounce) can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/4 cup cornstarch


INSTRUCTIONS


1. Place the frozen roast in your instant pot.

2. In a bowl, whisk together the beef broth, mushroom soup, and onion soup mix. Pour this mixture over the roast.

3. Place the lid onto your instant pot and turn the steam valve to the sealing position.

4. Select the manual/pressure cook, high-pressure setting and set the time. Your cook time will be 30 minutes per pound of meat. If your roast is 2 lbs., set the time for 60 minutes. If your roast is 3 lbs., set the time to 90 minutes. After 10 seconds, the display will say On. Once the instant pot is pressurized, the float valve will rise and the cook timer will begin counting down.

5. At the end of the cooking time, the pot will begin naturally releasing. The time display will begin counting up for how long it is naturally releasing. At the end of 30 minutes naturally releasing, turn the steam valve to venting. When the float valve drops (it may have already dropped), open the instant pot.

6. Remove the roast from the pot to a plate and shred with two forks.

7. Set the instant pot to Saute. Mix the cornstarch with a little bit of water and whisk it into the gravy. Continue whisking until the gravy thickens. Return the shredded meat to the gravy. Hit Cancel on your pot and serve.
