  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function. Pour in 2 tablespoons oil. Add roast to hot oil and cook until browned all over, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Add broth.
  2. Combine remaining oil, potatoes, carrots, onion, and soup mix in a resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to coat evenly. Pour mixture into the pressure cooker and spread out evenly.
  3. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 60 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

Great recipe, A little too salty. Will try it again without onion soup. Put in additional spices.

A few little changes,I like some organic turmeric for health,as well as a few more fall vegetables.I will definitely use it again.
