Yankee Pot Roast Recipe


1.5 lbs beef roast, cut into about 8 pieces
1 lbs baby potatoes
1 1/2 cups baby carrots
1 large onion, quartered and pulled apart
2 stalks of celery, cut into 1-inch chunks (optional)
1 cup low sodium beef broth
1 North Shore Flavors Yankee Pot Roast Spice Packet
2 Tablespoons olive oil


Add oil and select Sauté HIGH. When the oil becomes shimmery and begins smoke, add cubed meat and sear on each side.

Cancel Sauté setting. Sprinkle North Shore Flavors packet over meat. Quickly mix spices with meat as you do not want the spices to burn. Next, pour in the beef broth and stir more. Be sure to scrape off the flavorful bits on the bottom of the pot.

Add the potatoes, carrots, celery and onion on top of the pieces of beef. The veggies should cover the meat. 

Seal and cook on manual for 35 minutes at high pressure. Do a natural pressure release for 10 minutes. If the meat is not fork tender, cook on high pressure for an additional 10 minutes.

(For a traditional slow cooker, cook on low for 8 hours)

Remove and discard any excess fat. 

For a thicker broth, crush about 4 baby potatoes. Stir and set on Sauté MEDIUM for 5 minutes.

Serve with crusty bread, mashed potatoes or rice.
