    Awesome! I added my own rub to each side before browning and it was super! 👍🏻👍🏻

    I cooked this in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours instead of an instant pot, it’s simple and very tasty. I liked the flavor the fresh rosemary brought.

    Overall, quite good. I’d prefer more herbs and flavor so perhaps I’ll season the meat more, and/or add some garlic next time. The carrots also became quite mushy. Not sure how to prevent that. The gravy was quite excellent. Made some cornbread to go with it, which was a great substitute for the biscuits I had originally planned.

    The flavor it did have was good but the meat was dry, followed cook times and release directions.

    It turned out well not to complicated

    I followed this recipe exactly as it was written. The pot roast turned out dry and tough, and I do not recommend you make this dish for yourself or your family; only make this recipe if you’re in a college dorm room or on a camping trip and space is limited. Pressure cookers aren’t meant to cook post roasts. I will from now on only cook chicken breast (for tacos), rice, mashed potatoes, and other meals that do well in a pressure cooker.

    Won’t be eating until later, but it came together quickly and easily, and didn’t rely on tomatoes, which is a nice change.

    Super easy - I pricked the meat with a knife before seasoning with S&P and a garlic herb blend, then seared it. I subbed red wine for the beef stock - we were camping, so I didn't have fresh herbs, subbed dried thyme, 1 bay leaf, and dried basil. Instead of whole carrots, I used 1/2 a Costco bag of the baby carrots. Was met with rave reviews.

    Turned out very tender, but needed more seasoning. Potato’s & carrots were just right.

    turned out great! we just mashed the potatoes- they were super tender and had liquid in them so they mashed easily. we made the gravy.

    it turned out really well! a tip tho would be to end it a little earlier (like 45 min to 1 hour) that way it's still moist)

    Amazing! Modified by also adding onion soup mix and adding the veggies for 10 minutes.

    Wonderful! Easy to prep and made a smaller roast so it only took 40 minutes! I added garlic and a seasoned pepper. Yum!

    It was amazing! Very easy recipe to follow and even easier to make. The meat came out so tender we had to use a serving spoon instead of tings to grab it.

    Followed others' suggestions and added onion soup mix and 5-6 whole cloves of garlic. Put large baby potatoes on top of the meat. Turned out delish!

    made this a few times now. i add an extra 3 tbs spoons of corn strach to the final mix to get it gravy like. also do not add the vegetables in the beginning they will be absolutely no mush by the end. take out the meat add your vegetables use manual and set it to 10 minutes on high pressure they'll be perfect.

    Really great flavor in a short time! I agree about adding garlic but other than that — so good!
