Prep Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 8 servings


  • 1 chuck roast, approx. 3 lbs.
  • 16 oz jar sliced pepperoncini peppers, with juices
  • salt and pepper


  1. Season roast well with salt and pepper. Using the saute setting on the IP, add a bit of olive oil; when the oil is hot, add the roast, browning it off on all sides. Pour the jar of pepperoncini and their juices over the roast. Lock the IP lid into place. 

  2. Use the manual button to choose the high pressure setting for 75 minutes, bringing the IP to full pressure.

  3. When the timer sounds, use a natural release, slowly letting the pressure in the IP come down on it's own. Open the IP and check the roast - the beef should be very fork-tender; remove the beef from the cooking liquid in the IP to a cutting board. From here, the sky is the limit!

Recipe Notes

Yes, this roast still takes 75 minutes in the Instant Pot... but it's not 4-5 hours like a slow cooker pot roast! www.chefAlli.comĀ
