Welcome to my Instant Pot Beef Roast.

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.

How Long To Cook Your Beef Roast In The Instant Pot

 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.

Welcome to my Instant Pot Beef Roast.

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

A delicious beef rib roast in the Instant Pot. Tender beef with a beautiful colour and perfect for being the star for any Sunday Dinner.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time45 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Instant Pot
Servings: 4
Calories: 705kcal

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

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.

    You specify setting roast to manual for 40 min, but at what temp Fahrenheit? I’m looking for rare-med rare. Looks great!

    • Hi Crystal,

      With an instant pot pressure cooker there is no temperature it is just low pressure or high pressure in which case you need high pressure. The time is most important and so is the type of release at the end. We cooked our joint for exactly 40 minutes with a quick release and it turned out rare to medium which is perfect for us.

      Kind regards

    • Hi Patty,

      Yes, We used a 3kg (6.6lbs i think) rib of beef and after the 40 minutes it was cooked to just how we liked it which is medium rare. So with yours been smaller i would always take the time down to 25 minutes depending on how you like your roast cooked. We always work with the rule that you can add more cooking time if it is not ready but you can never take it away 🙂

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards

    • Hi Kate,

      We have not tried to cook yorkshire pudding in the instant pot and we think it could turn out just like a steamed pudding instead of the crispy yorlshire puddings we love. They need dry heat to rise like a cooker or we love to use our air fryer for them as they are very quick to cook.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards

    • Hi Jennifer,

      To get that colour on the beef you can use the saute setting on your instant pot before you cook it. Add some oil to your instant pot and place the beef topside down and leave for 5-10 minutes to brown on the top. Then just add the water and cook the beef for the specified amount of time.

      Kind Regards

    • Hi karling,

      I would personally take 10 minutes of off the cooking time because when you have a bone in there is less meat to cook and when the bone heats up it cooks the meat as well.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards

    • Hi Stacey,

      I would not recommend cooking any roasting joint from frozen as they would not reach the required temperature inside the joint. But if you wanted to try may be doubling the cooking time but I wouldn’t recommend it ?

      Kind regards

  2. The past 2 months I have been learning to use an instant pot. Still learning! Thank you for the boneless rib roast recipe. I covered it with a mix of herbs, used the saute setting to brown it, placed it on the rack & set the slow cook setting on LOW for 40 mins. I allowed it to release the pressure on its own as my husband does not care for med rare beef. It came out perfect AND very delicious!

      Ours was 2.5 kg yours is 3.6 kg, i would take the time up to 1 hour so you are increasing the time by a third 🙂 Ours was cooked to how we like it which is medium rare!

    • Hi Phylis

      With the roast been cooked for so long the vegetables will become overcooked and mushy if you cook with the beef roast. Taking them out or adding them will effect the cooking of the joint of meat also so i would not recommend doing that 🙂
