Welcome to my Instant Pot Beef Roast. This roasted beef in the Instant Pot will take your next Sunday dinner to a whole new level. It is so SIMPLE that your kids could make it for YOU.
You can move the girl away from Yorkshire and get her to live in a beautiful hot country like Portugal, but you can never take the Yorkshire out of the girl.
I grew up in a small town called Bridlington in the North East of England. An Aussie singer once named it as “quaint little town” in her autobiography. I would say it was a town, with not many opportunities for young people (hence why I left) but a place where you are guaranteed a delicious beef roast.
There would be a carvery on every street and you could pay a set price to have roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, loads of vegetables and gravy.
We knew these places so well and you would find them packed out with locals and holiday makers on a Sunday afternoon while they waited for their beef roast fix.
Dominic worked in many of these places during his chef days during the mid 90s until the dawn of the new Millennium. I also worked in a few of them as a waitress when I was still at school.
He often said that the biggest perk to working at one of these lovely places is the fact that you got plenty of the leftovers when the customers had gone home. Sadly I worked in the one place where the food was rather horrible, so I would instead help myself to Yorkshire teacakes instead.
To me my memories of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding is well before you could have an Instant Pot Beef Roast. It was also when your mum used to make it for Sunday dinner.
My mum made (and still does make) a fantastic beef roast. It would come with the biggest ever Yorkshire Puddings that you have ever seen, vegetables in a cheese sauce, homemade gravy, savoy cabbage and never enough roast potatoes.
She would start it at lunch time and everything would be ready in time for dinner and the house would smell of delicious home cooking.
But now we have an Instant Pot and can make a Sunday Beef Roast in a fraction of the time. We can cook the roast in the Instant Pot, make roast potatoes in the Airfryer and steam our vegetables in the soup maker. Gone is the 3 hours that it would once take to make a quality roast dinner and instead we can do the whole thing in under an hour.
Our grandparents would find this surreal and some kind of magical event.
But it is true and that is why I will carry around with me my Pressure Cooker Instant Pot Beef Roast recipe, so that I can save time and focus more on being with my family as time can be so precious.
Instant Pot Beef Roast
- Place the beef rib onto a chopping board. Using a sharp knife score the meat so that your beef will be flavoursome.
- Rub salt, pepper and sage into the top and sides of the beef.
- Place 1 cup (240ml) of warm water into the bottom of your Instant Pot inner pot.
- Place the rib of beef on top, set the lid to sealing and cook for 40 minutes on manual.
- Use quick pressure release (QPR) when it beeps if you are looking for rare to medium beef like we had. Otherwise leave it on natural pressure release (NPR) if you want your beef to be medium.
We used dried sage in this recipe. It gives it an amazing old school classic taste. We used a boneless rib of beef and we find less is more when it comes to ingredients as the beef should be the star not the seasonings.
The size of beef rib we had was 2.3 Kilos. When you have finished cooking your Instant Pot Beef Roast do make sure that you have sharp knives for cutting it, as accidents can very easily happen when chopping beef. This is the knife sharpener we use on our knives.

Introducing Work Sharp Culinary E5 Electric Knife Sharpener
Anybody that knows me knows that I am partially sighted. I don’t have a white stick but I do walk into things, can not drive, always leave the lights on because life feels dim and always cuts myself. My most famous thing is not realising that the knife is blunt and slicing off the end of my finger as I make carrot sticks.
That is why Work Sharp Culinary and their knife sharpener is a life changer for me.
Here are 10 reasons to buy the Work Sharp Culinary E5 Electric Knife Sharpener:
- Easy to use
- Does an outstanding job in less than two minutes
- Compact for minimal counter space usage and easy storage
- Pre-programmed sharpening stages remove any guesswork
- 17-degree sharpening with upgrades available for 15- and 20-degree options
- Ceramic honing rod
- Works with most knives
- Ready to use as soon as you plug it in
- Hand sharpening available with the M3 system from Work Sharp Culinary
- Available now on Williams-Sonoma, Amazon or Work Sharp Culinary site
This is such a handy knife sharpener. It’s dummy proof. The E5 Knife Sharpener is pre-programmed to simplify use. Just run any knife through the sharpener slowly, alternating between the right and left sides, and once the machine’s run through the sharpening stages, you’re done. You’ll be shocked by how sharp your knives are!
To keep your knife razor-ready between sharpening’s, the E5 Knife Sharpener from Work Sharp Culinary comes with a honing tool. It had guides to angle your knife perfectly while you hone the edges. This keeps your knives sharper for longer. When things are dull, simply use the E5 again.
There’s also the E5 upgrade kit that offers 15- and 20-degree guides. I haven’t needed to use the upgrade kit yet. The 17-degree angle is ideal for the knives I own. If I had more of a knife collection, however, it would be handy being able to adjust the angle.
Not sure electric knife sharpening is for you? Don’t worry. Work Sharp Culinary has one of the best hand-held sets I’ve come across. The M3 Knife Sharpener has two sharpening rods, one diamond and one ceramic, that allow you to sharpen your knives and hone them as needed. The rods are designed to fit in most knife blocks.
Overall – I have a secret. I hate the knife sharpeners that come in your knife block. They never work effectively. I loved the E5 Knife Sharpener. It is just a matter of plug it in, pick the setting to shape, and then run it slowly through the sharpener until the machine shuts off. Between uses, use the included honing tool to keep your knife sharp.
In less than 30 minutes, I’d sharpened all the knives in my kitchen. Many of them seemed sharper than they were when I got them. I’m impressed by the ease of use and how sharp my knives are. Work Sharp Culinary’s E5 Knife Sharpener is a must-have!
