  1. Season the beef chuck roast generously with salt and pepper on all sides.
  2. Set the Instant Pot® to “Sauté” setting and allow pot to heat up. Add the vegetable oil.
  3. When hot, sear the meat on all sides until very brown. Remove meat from the pot, set aside, and immediately add the onions to the pot. Sauté 2–3 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to combine. Cook 1 minute.
  5. Add the beef broth and tomato paste. Stir to combine. Turn off the Instant Pot®.
  6. Add baby carrots and red potatoes to the pot. Place the browned beef chuck roast on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle onion soup mix all over the top.
  7. Put the cover on the Instant Pot®. Be sure the pressure valve is set to “Sealing.” Use the manual setting to set the timer for 90 minutes.
  8. When the timer goes off, allow pressure to release naturally OR turn pressure valve to “Venting” to release pressure quickly. **Be sure to read all Instant Pot® instructions carefully for safety. Be sure Instant Pot® is turned off and unplugged before carefully removing the cover.
  9. Gently slice the meat or use a fork to break into bite-sized pieces.
