Yeah, it is pretty darn good but I bet you are thinking… how can we make it better? We are going to Bearded Badass it up. Instead of using onion soup mix we will use our Bearded Badass Rub along with our Ranch seasoning mix. This simple change makes the most flavorful pot roast you have ever sunk your teeth into.

  • 3-4 pounds chuck roast cut into 5-6 pieces

  • 2 tbsp Life 44 Ranch Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup pepperoncinis whole or sliced
  • 1 stick butter cut into cubes or slices
  • 1/2 cup beef broth


  1. Choose the "Saute" option on your instant pot. Once the instant pot is hot add the 2 tbsp of olive oil and allow oil to heat up for 30 seconds or so. Add the cut up chuck roast and brown on all sides.

  2. Once the roast has been browned on all sides add on top of roast the 2 tbsp of Bearded Badass Rub, the 2 tbsp of Ranch seasoning mix, the stick of butter and the 1/4 cup of pepperoncinis. Slowly add the 1/2 cup beef broth to the sides.

  4. Once the 50 minutes are up allow the instant pot to release the pressure naturally. This should take between 12-15 minutes.

  6. Serve over buttered noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
