  • 1 lb (454g) carrots

  • Powdered gelatin (very optional)

  1. Grab your favorite Instant Pot
  2. Oil the roast and season it heavily with salt and pepper.
  3. Brown the outside over moderate heat, taking care to not to let anything burn.
  4. Finely chop the shallots, and when the meat is brown, throw them into the pan at let them brown for a few minutes.
  5. Stir in a squeeze of tomato paste and let it brown for a minute.
  6. Pour in the beef stock and deglaze the pan.
  7. Season heavily with garlic powder, onion powder, dried mushroom powder, assorted dry herbs and pepper.
  8. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and let braise until you can feel the meat starting to soften, 2-3 hours. Prep the vegetables by cutting them into really big pieces.
  9. For the green onions, I cut off the white parts and cook them whole — the greens I slice thin and use for garnish at the end.
  10. If you want to be able to slice the roast, take it out when it’s just barely fork tender.
  11. If you want to tear it into chunks, cook it as soft as you want. When everything is cooked, remove all the solids with a slotted spoon and transfer to a heat-safe platter.
  12. Keep this in a warm oven until you’re ready to eat.
  13. To finish the gravy, consider blooming a couple packets of powdered gelatin in some cool water for a few minutes until gelled, then stir that into the gravy.
  14. This will enhance the texture, but it’s not necessary.
  15. Mix a couple spoonfuls of starch with just enough cool water to make a thin paste.
  16. Mix a couple spoonfuls of starch with just enough cool water to make a thin paste.
  17. Drizzle some of that slowly into the gravy while you stir aggressively, and bring the gravy to a boil.
  18. Keep stirring in slurry until the gravy is as thick as you want it.
  19. Stir in mustard, honey and additional seasoning to taste.
  20. Slice the roast, cover everything with gravy and garnish with the sliced onion greens.
