How to serve roast beef
This Instant Pot roast beef recipe has multiple purposes.
It’s great served as a roast with red potatoes, but it’s also perfect for sandwich meat.
If you want more vegetables in the side dish, try the Instant Pot Rice Pilaf.
What Cut of Beef Should I Use?
For this recipe I used the round of eye roast. This is a great part, which is very juicy and full of flavor.
A rump roast is also a common choice for Instant Pot Roast Beef that works quite well.
Why Do You Saute the Beef First?
Sauteing the beef adds a deep brown crust that creates an appealing color and texture, and tastes great!
When we sauté the beef, it also creates a flavorful fond on the bottom of the pot. And once you add the beef broth, it dissolves all those brown bits into the liquid creating a more flavorful, fortified broth.
That’s why when you make this recipe, you’ll definitely want to reserve the liquid! Pour some liquid on top of the sliced roast to keep it hot and juicy, or serve it as an au jus (=with juice) accompanying leftover roast beef for sandwiches!
Is it Gluten Free?
Because this dish calls for a small amount of soy sauce, which is made from wheat and therefore contains gluten, it is not gluten free.
How to make gluten-free Roast Beef
There’s an easy solution to make this a gluten free recipe. Tamari is very similar to soy sauce in terms of taste, texture, and color, and it’s gluten free since it’s made using only soybeans.
You could also just leave the soy sauce out to make this gluten free, but I think it adds great depth of flavor, even though only a small amount is used.
How Do I Reheat Leftovers?
Just like the Instant Pot London broil, this roast beef can be prepared a day before and reheated to serve. You can return the meat and the juices to the Instant Pot and set to the keep-warm function to reheat.
Alternatively, this beef is also good cold, thinly sliced (similar to the Instant Pot Mississippi Pot Roast). Perfect for roast beef sandwiches! Just remember to serve with the cooking liquid…
