Instant Pot BBQ Rump Roast

This Instant Pot BBQ Rump Roast is absolutely delicious! It is a great flavorful main course! Perfect for Sunday dinner. I have adapted this recipe from a recipe that would take all day to cook in the oven, to a quick and easy Instant Pot recipe! The Instant Pot makes this roast tender and juicy. The sauce is thick and tasty! I love it and I think you will too! Make it with me.

I use a rump roast for this recipe because it is a great cut of meat. I try to always grab one that is between 4 and 5 pounds. For Instant Pot cook time, I say to cook for 12 minutes per pound. I always round up too. You also want to allow the Instant Pot to naturally release for 10 minutes, before quick releasing the pressure. This will allow the sauce and flavors to be incorporated even more.

I love my Instant Pot! I seriously love how easy it makes recipes! This recipe was shared with me by my Grandma B. She made this recipe for my mom all the time and it is one of her favorites. It is definitely a traditional recipe in my family. I hope you enjoy it!
