Venison Roast is a great meal to cook in the Instant Pot. Pressure cooking makes it tender and flavorful.
Venison Roast in the Instant Pot
First, set the Instant Pot to Sauté, and when it is hot, add the oil. Carefully place the roast into the hot oil, and brown on all sides. It should only take about two minutes per side to get it nice and browned.
Second, add the sliced onions – I like to add them while the roast is browning, so the onions can soften and brown a little bit, too. It just adds to the flavor!
Next, add the broth, Au Jus seasoning, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Stir and lock the lid into place.
Finally, let it pressure cook for 80 minutes, then allow it to natural release for 15 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
How to serve IP Venison Roast
Slice and serve on rolls with the juice on the side, French-Dip style. Or, thicken the juices with flour or cornstarch and serve as gravy over potatoes or noodles.
Here is a great mashed potato recipe. And this Soft French Bread would be amazing on the side! And don’t forget the greens – try this tasty spinach salad that my family loves.
