Cooking Tips:

  • For more flavor, rub some garlic salt and dried parsley on the roast with the salt and pepper.
  • Don’t skip the step where you sear the meat. This is what gives locks in all the juices.
  • Use the keep warm setting on the Instant Pot as you naturally release the steam for two hours.
  • When you cut it, make sure to slice across the grain and serve.
