Pre-heat pot to sauté mode
Take your roast out of the freezer. Place roast, still in the package, into a bowl and place in the sink under cold running water to defrost the surface of the roast
Rinse and roughly chop your vegetables. Cut your vegetables on the bigger side to maintain some integrity after cooking
Salt and pepper your chuck roast liberally to ensure there is enough to penetrate the meat once it has defrosted in the instant pot.
Add oil to the instant pot and let heat until you see some smoke on the oil. Place roast into the pot and press down to make sure there is good contact with the surface. Let brown on each side of roast for 3 minutes.
Take roast out of the pot and set aside.
Put tomato paste and herbs into the pot and mix. Let that cook for 1 minute.
Add wine to deglaze the pot and then add your vegetables to the instant pot. Season with salt and pepper.
Place roast back in pot on top of the vegetables. Add your stock or water now to cover the vegetables.
Put the lid to your pot on and change to pressure cook mode for an hour and a half. After an hour and a half, change to warm mode and let sit for half an hour.
Take the roast out. It will be very tender, so we recommend using a spoon and tongs to move the meat on to a serving plate. Move the vegetables to your serving plate.
Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with bread.
