Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Pot Roast


3.5 lb Beef Bottom Round Roast
2 tbsp Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix
1/2 cup warm water, I microwaved mine in a mug for 1 minute
2 tsp Beef Bouillon
8 tbsp Butter
7 Greek Pepperoncini Peppers, you can also swap this out for 1 cup of yellow onions


  1. Add the roast to the Ninja Foodi pot
  2. Warm your water in the microwave for 1 minute. Then, stir in the beef bouillon
  3. Sprinkle the roast with the spice mixture and pour on the bouillon broth. Top with a stick of butter and the peppers.
  4. Set the cooking pot in the Foodi base and twist & lock the pressure cooker lid. Double-check that your vent on the lid is turned to “seal”
  5. Select “Pressure Cooker”, and cook on “High” for 1.5 hours.
  6. Once the clock reaches zero, you can allow the pressure to release normally (~15 minutes). If you’re in a rush, you can release the pressure quickly by turning your vent on the lid from “seal” to “vent”.
  7. Optional: For a crispier finish, add the air fryer lid and crisp the outside of the roast for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.

Recipe Notes

Pre-sear the Meat

It’s completely optional to brown the meat before adding the broth. To do this in the Foodi, just turn the “sauté/sear” to “high” and add 1 tbsp of the butter. Season both sides of the roast and brown it for 2 minutes per side.

Make Pan Gravy

After your roast is complete, you might want to make an easy gravy. Simply remove your roast, and add 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum to the pan drippings. Cook on the “sauté/sear” function on “high” until the gravy is as thick as you’d like.

Add vegetables like carrots

I haven’t tried this in my own kitchen, but a reader used the quick release and added carrots as well as potatoes during the last 15 minutes of pressure cooking.
