Cold winter, and not enough daylight hours? Warm up in no time with our take on a classic pot roast, now made faster with a modern pressure cooker: a White Oak Pastures Pot Roast, Instant Pot edition.


This recipe is for a 3lb cut of grassfed beef, adjust accordingly.

  • 3 lb. White Oak Pastures grassfed beef rump roast or any grassfed beef roast
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup red wine (don’t forget some for the cook, if you’d like!)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups stock
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby potatoes
  • 4 large carrots, cut length-wise and into 2-inch pieces
  • chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Set a 6-qt Instant Pot (or equivalent) to the high saute setting.
  2. Season beef with 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Add oil; add beef and brown each side evenly (about 2-3 minutes per side); set aside.
  4. Add onion, and cook until translucent (about 2-3 minutes). Stir in garlic and tomato paste until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir in red wine; scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
  6. Stir in stock, Worcestershire. Gradually whisk in flour.
