Get perfectly cooked, medium-rare roast beef every single time with the Instant Pot recipe below. It's the easiest way to get a juicy pink interior that's also tender and almost impossibly easy to slice. The beef soaks up the flavors of all of the delicious aromatics and herbs for even more flavor.
This beef is best when served with a side dish that can soak up all of the delicious flavors. Roasted potatoes or mashed potatoes are both classic sides for roast beef, but a simple loaf of good bread will do the job nicely!

Instant Pot roast beef
10 minutes
3 hours
3 hours 10 minutes
3 pound beef rump roast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, quartered
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 sprigs thyme
1 cup beef stock
Season the beef with salt and pepper on all sides.
Heat the olive oil in the Instant Pot set on the sauté setting. Sear the beef on all sides until nicely caramelized. Set aside.
Add the onion and garlic to the Instant Pot and cook until just fragrant, about 2 minutes. Turn off the Instant Pot.
Add the thyme and the beef stock to the Instant Pot, stirring with a wooden spoon to bring up the fond. Add the trivet to the Instant Pot, then add the beef.
Cook on high for 3 minutes, then reduce to the warm setting. Keep the pot on warm for 3 hours. Take the internal temperature of the beef: when it's at 135 degrees Fahrenheit, it will be perfectly medium-rare.
Remove the beef from the Instant Pot and strain out the juices. Return to the Instant Pot and cook on the sauté setting to reduce to desired thickness.
