Instructions
Prepare the Meat
  1. Cut the chuck roast into 4 to 6 chunks, separating at the seams to expose the fat. Use a sharp knife to trim as much fat as possible from the chunks of roast.
Rub the Meat with Spices
  1. Combine the spice rub ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle the rub over the pieces of beef and use your hands to press the seasoning into the meat.
Cook in the Instant Pot
  1. Press the [Saute] on the instant pot and the. Wait for the pot to say "HOT" before adding ingredients. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the heated pot. Add half of the seasoned beef (or as much as will fit comfortably without being too crowded) and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until nicely seared. Transfer seared beef to a plate and repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the rest of the beef. Transfer second batch of beef to the plate and set aside.
  2. Press [Cancel] and then select [Saute] again. Add the onions and garlic to the pot and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Add the tomato paste and cook. Add red wine, broth, and Worcestershire sauce,stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom.. Nestle the chunks of browned beef down into the sauce and then top with carrots and potatoes. Don't stir.
  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot. Press the [Slow Cook] button, select [High], and set the time to 8 hours (making sure the steam release handle is in the "Sealing" position). After the cooking is complete allow the Instant Pot to do a natural release for 10 minutes then use a long handled spoon to push the steam release handle to the "Venting" position to allow any remaining steam to release completely before you open the pot. Press [Cancel]. Open the pot and transfer the carrots and potatoes to a serving dish.
Make the Gravy
  1. Press [Saute]. Stir 1 cup water into the very concentrated cooking liquid in the Instant Pot to dilute it a bit. Taste and if needed, add additional 1/2 cup of water to dilute as desired. In a small bowl stir together 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Whisk the mixture into the Instant Pot and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the gravy has thickened to your liking, stirring occasionally. Press CANCEL and unplug the Instant Pot. Transfer the gravy to a gravy boat.
