Watch me make this recipe on my YouTube channel:

A dish filled with sliced peppers and onion.

To begin, salt and pepper the roast on each side with 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper.

Combine the beef stock, vinegar and garlic in a dish or measuring cup, and set aside for now.

Add the oil to your Instant Pot and press the sauté button.

When the oil is shimmering hot, place the roast into the pot. Let it get a nice sear on the meat by leaving it perfectly still for 5 minutes. Using some tongs, carefully turn it over and sear the other side for 5 minutes as well

Arrange the onions and peppers all over the top of the roast.

Close and seal the Instant Pot and press the “manual” button. Set the time to 45 minutes. Ensure that the valve is closed properly.

When the cook cycle is finished, lift the roast from the Instant Pot and place it on a platter. Let it rest about 10 minutes before slicing.

Scoop the onion and peppers out and arrange them around the roast.

Season with the remaining salt and pepper.

Enjoy!

  2. Wow, this beef looks sooo good. I’m always looking for easy recipes like this. I made beef stew in IP this week and loved how soft the meat was, will definitely try this recipe next week. Can I skip cubanelle peppers or do they bring some unique flavor to the dish? Thanks!!
