This was good not great. Not very flavorful.

It turned out awesome. Definitely enjoyed having it for dinner and will equally enjoy eating the leftovers for lunch. One thing I did different, instead of making the gravy the suggested way in the recipe, I reduced the remaining liquid by boiling it for 30 minutes and added a bit of arrowroot. Turned out to be super rich and flavorful gravy.

Amazing! Used the cheapest roast I could find and was so tender......
Great! Very flavorful with only a handful of ingredients. Better than my old standby of onion soup mix over the meat and veggies in a rock pot. A keeper! I used sirloin tip roast and had about 4 pounds plus of meat. Added onions, carrots and red potatoes until it was up to the 2/3 full line. Fall apart meat, tender but not mushy potatoes and carrots. Onions disintegrated but they added lists of flavor.

The meat was great! The potatoes were cooked well, just lacked a bit of flavor. I only had baby carrots, which came out a bit mushy. If I had used regular carrots, I think it would have been better. I will definitely make this again!
The roast was not as moist and fall apart wonderful as I had hoped. However, I did not natural release for 10 minutes. I only did 8. Perhaps if I had, it would've made a difference. The taste was great though and I liked it enough to try it again!

Awesome! Hubby says "Let's do it again!"
I had an English roast in the fridge so that was the cut if meat I used. I also only had dried thyme so that was used, otherwise I followed the recipe. I like the idea of using whole carrots and potatoes because other instant pot roast recipes that I have made, the vegetables have disintegrated. English roast is a tough cut of meat but this turned out well. I will be making it again.

Turned out very well! Might add more spices next time, though.
