Spicy Roast Beef

By , September 11, 2012

Submitted by Ezzie B.

This is one of our favorites and so easy in the Instant Pot on the slow cook setting!


  • 3 lbs roast (I use London Broil)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cracked black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp minced dehydrated garlic or two cloves fresh garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard *


  •  Slow cook setting  4 hours
  • Make several slits in the roast.  I like to smother the roast in the mustard then place the roast in the cooking pot. If using fresh garlic you can stuff pieces of garlic in the slits.
  • Mix all the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Pour the mixture over the roast in the pot.
  • Put lid on securely and set slow cook on the Instant Pot to 4 to 5 hours.  I’ve found 4 hours works just fine.


* I use my own homemade mustard that can be found here:
