Eye of round is a very lean cut of beef that looks like tenderloin but is not as tender. It is perfectly suited to long, slow cooking methods and is ideal for the pressure cooker too. This roast is often what you get at the deli when buying “sliced roast beef”.

  1. About 1 hour before cooking the roast, take it out of the fridge so it can come to room temperature.
  2. Season the roast generously all over with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. When the meat is at room temperature, pour oil into the pressure cooker and then press the “sauté” option.
  4. Sear the roast well on all sides, then deglaze it with the cup of water.
  5. After that, turn off the pressure cooker and add the veggies and garlic.
  6. Put the roast carefully on top – fat side up.
  7. Place the lid on and then seal the vent properly.
  8. Cook on “manual” for 25 minutes or more, depending on the size of the roast.
  9. Let it sit for 15 minutes before carefully venting. The internal heat should be around 140˚F.

3. Apricot Marinated Eye of the Round Pot Roast


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 cups of beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 teaspoons pickling spice
  • 4-pound eye of the round roast


  1. To make the marinade, use a saucepan over a medium-high temperature. Combine the beef broth, vinegar, apricot preserves, salt, onion, carrot, and pickling spice.
  2. Stir them together and then bring to a boil.
  3. Remove it from the heat, cover, and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  4. Put the roast into a ceramic dish, then pour the chilled marinade over the meat. Cover and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours, turning once or twice so that the marinade touches all sides of the meat.
  5. When you are ready to cook, put the meat with marinade into your pressure cooker.
  6. Cook on high pressure for an hour then allow the pressure to naturally release. Check your roast. If it needs longer, give it an extra 15 minutes.
  7. Remove the meat and stir the cream into the juices to make a sauce.
  8. If you want your roast to cook and tenderize quicker, cut it into 2 pieces before marinating.
