  • 3-4 pound beef chuck roast
  • 1 package 1.25 oz, ranch dressing seasoning packet
  • 1 package 1 oz, au jus gravy seasoning packet
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 3-4 pepperoncini peppers
  • mashed potatoes for serving if desired


  • Place oil into the Instant Pot and place roast in pot. Sautee on each side until browned.
  • Add broth and sprinkle seasoning packets on top of roast and in the pot. Place peppers on top of roast.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal shut. Close the pressure release valve. Set the Instant Pot to manual, high pressure for 45 minutes.

Open the lid and use two forks to shred the beef and remove bones, or remove roast from pot and slice and shred on a plate. Remove peppers from pan and cut with a knife, discarding seed bunch and stem, and mix in with the beef.
