Pressure Cooker Red Wine Beef Roast

Instant Pot Red Wine Beef Roast is a quick recipe to make compared to its stovetop and crockpot versions. But in any way it is made, this dish is a family favorite.

Even when made with cheaper cuts of beef, this dish will still turn out tender and flavorful. Thanks to the power of pressure cooking!

Not only can the Instant Pot shorten the long hours of cooking, but it can also be used to directly sear the meat before the addition of the broth. You can do all these and more with just one pot which lessens the hassle!

Since it has red wine in the ingredients, the flavor that develops is rich just like those served in restaurants! With your wine, you can dine in style eating this dish for dinner.

How to make Instant Pot Red Wine Beef Roast

  • Sear: Season the meat well. Then, using the Sauté function of the IP, sear the sides of the meat in oil until browned.
  • Cook: Toss in the rest of the ingredients, then, close and seal the valve. Pressure Cook f0r 15-20 minutes.
  • Release: Do a natural pressure release for about 25-30 minutes before finally venting.
  • Shred: Remove the roast and the veggies and put them into a platter. Using a fork, shred the meat then, serve with the vegetables.

How to make beef roast gravy in Instant Pot or pressure cooker

Follow the initial steps stated above. Then, when you have removed the cooked meat to shred, that is when you can make a gravy out of the broth left in the IP.

Add a slurry of starch and water into the broth to thicken it into a gravy. Season with salt and pepper if needed.

Reserve this for use in reheating later or to top the shredded meat when serving. You can also use this gravy to top mashed potatoes that you can serve alongside this meaty dish.

Or, once you remove the potatoes along with the beef, you can mash them then, season to turn into mashed potatoes.

What meat cut is best for pot roast?

Chuck, brisket, or round. These are tough and lean cuts with minimal fat. Tough ones are better choices aside from the price point of view.

Since you will be subjecting the meat to high pressure, then, even the cheaper tough cuts can be used. The collagen in these cuts turns into gelatin which makes this dish silky. At the same time, the meat becomes tender enough to be shredded.

What red wine is best to use for it?

The best choice would be something that you would drink, too. If you like to drink it, then, it is probable that you will love the dish made with it, too.

How to Store

  • Refrigerate: Let it cool completely and then, transfer into an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
  • Freeze: You can freeze leftovers for up to 3 months, sealed in freezer bags. To reheat, thaw overnight and heat on the stove together with the sauce.

Recipe Tips

  • You may opt to make this using the slow cooker or on the stove.
  • There is no need to thaw meat when cooking with the IP but extend the cooking time by at least 20 minutes.
  • When storing leftovers, make sure to put sufficient sauce or gravy to prevent them from being too dry.

I'm confused, the printable recipe doesn't match what your blog posting says.......... -Under "How to make insant pot red wine beef roast" you say.... "Cook: Toss in the rest of the ingredients, then, close and seal the valve. Cook in “manual” and set at 60 minutes. Release: Do a natural pressure release for about 10 minutes before finally venting." -In the printable recipe you say..... 4. For under 3 inches thick beef: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 3 minutes + 25 minutes Natural Release. 5. For over 3 inches thick beef: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 4 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release. 6. Open the lid, then measure the temperature of the roast in the thickest part, aim for 120°F. If the temperature is too low, then close the lid. Use the "Keep Warm" mode to continue to slow cook the beef for about 10 minutes. 7. Next, do a natural pressure release for 10 minutes and vent. Also, under "What meat cut is best for pot roast" you say chuck, brisket or round. In the printable recipe you say Eye of Round or Top Sirloin.


I am sorry Sue, I have corrected the post, the recipe card is correct. I hope you try the recipe.
