    I changed the au jus to Lipton onion soup mix because I was out of au jus. It was delicious!

    I am not sure what I did wrong. I followed the directions and scaped the bottom of the instant pot with the broth but I kept getting the burn notification when I tried to cook it. I finally took it out and put it in the oven to roast.

    Good but it was a little salty for me...

    Phenomenal. Great tasting roast!
    OMG!!!! I’ve been eating roast all my life and making it for over 20 years and I have never made a roast that tasted so good and came out sooooo tender!!! Easy to switch up a few ingredients here and there to your liking!! Highly recommended!!!

    Great recipe for beginners! This roast came out so good and so easy, I could barely believe it. As someone new to cooking I am often intimidated by the task of cooking meat - and usually end up with something too tough or too raw or just flavorless. This recipe, however, made me feel like a pro. I used sweet and spicy pickled jalapeños from Trader Joe’s instead of peperoncini peppers and I added fresh red bell peppers and onions for sweetness - highly recommend
    Great recipe but I did deviate a bit from the ingredients. I used a London Broil instead of Chuck, added a half of an onion sliced, and a container of sliced mushrooms. The preparation and cook time were according to the recipe. I served this over diced roasted red potatoes and it was a hit with my family. I will definitely make again!

    It was great! I used a gravy packet and a Lipton onion soup packet, cut the chuck into about four big chucks, browned them and only used 4 peppercini (since kids would eat it) and it was wonderful. I only cooked the 3lbs for 59 mins and let it release on its own. It was so tender. I did use two cups of beef broth so I had two plus cups of gravy and the kids loved it. Will make again.

    I’ve made this pot roast several times different ways and I always use and recommend the pepperoncini. This recipe was a bit more busy by cutting the meat into cubes, but it turned out good meat is oh so tender and flavorful. I’ll be using this recipe again.

    Tasted great. The only thing I added was juice from the pepperoncini peppers and I put garlic into punctured holes I put in the meat. I also only needed to pressure cook it for 45 min. after browning both sides

    Opted for the non browning method, had a burn warning witch was a little annoying, (make sure there is liquid and like a pepper under the meat) but other than that it all went well, the only other thing I may recommend is to trim the larger pieces of fat and to strain the liquid before making the gravy, ours had a lot of small fat bits that did add flavor but fat is fat.... As a side note, you can adjust the number of peppers used to change the spiciness.

    Good recipe. I did not add the ranch packet, only used the Gravy packet since that is A LOT of sodium! I used 4th cup of pickled jalapeños with juice with 4th cup of pepperoncini’s to add spice per another reviewer. The spice did not come through. I also added potato’s and anticipate on adding carrots too next time. The gravy was a great idea!

    I don’t use the broth when I make this and I swapped tamed pickled sliced jalapeños with some of the juice instead of the pepperoncini peppers. Only way I will make roast now!! So good!!
