Jo's Roast Beef

Thanks to The Really Real Housewives of America

I like to find easy recipes and then cheat and make them even easier. I found this recipe on Jo's Blog:

Instant Pot Deli-Style Roast Beef
3 1/2 lb eye of round beef roast
1 12 oz bottle beer or red wine (I didn't have beer or wine, so I skipped this step) 
1/2 cup dry English Mustard (I used spicy mustard)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt (I used regular salt)
1 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground (I used whatever was in the shaker)
1 tsp garlic powder (I also added some onion powder)
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups beef stock (I used a small can)
 1/4 cup Flour 

Now, if you head over to Jo's blog, you can read the steps for what is undoubtedly a better roast, but here's the easier cheater's way:

I cut my beef into chunks and browned in my instant pot seasoning the meat as I browned it with salt and pepper, garlic, and onion. Then I poured the beef broth over it and let cook on one meat cycle in the instant pot without the trivet (I think it was 19 minutes).

When that was done, I used my Pampered Chef Mix and Chop - a handy little kitchen tool that

smashes cooked meat. Once the meat was about the consistency of pulled pork, I added the brown sugar and the spicy brown mustard and cooked for another 10 minutes, adding a quarter cup of water to make sure there was enough broth to allow the pressure cooker to work.

Once that was finished, I mixed in a bit of white flour (about a quarter cup, mixed in water to avoid lumps) setting the pot on saute until the juice was made into a gravy.

I toasted some thick bread and layered it with the meat and it was delicious!


  1. Oh Yummy! I always need easy recipes, as I'm not that good of a cook. Thank you for sharing😉

  2. Sounds soooo good! Thanks for the recipe. I'm gonna pin it for later.

  3. Hey Liz, that's 1 12 oz. bottle of beer or red wine.

    The Instant Pot version is so easy if you have one.

    1. Good thing you pointed that out! My recipe was the alcoholics version. LOL

  4. Now I have to Google Instant Pot because the recipe made me hungry.


    1. I need to pick up another roast and make it again. It's really good.


Thanks for stopping by the House!
