Tips for making Pot Roast with Gravy in the Ninja Foodi:


1.If you are cooking a whole roast, adjust pressure cook time to 90 minutes.  If you are cutting the roast into 4X4 inch pieces, pressure cook roast for 65 minutes.

2.If you are cooking with a frozen roast, there is no need to adjust the pressure cooking time.  The Ninja Foodi will take substantially longer to reach pressure.  During this additional time, the roast will start to thaw. 

3.Be sure to naturally release the pressure for your pot roast.  If you quick release the pressure, you may end up with a dry or chewy roast. Natural release pressure by doing nothing at all when the timer beeps.  Do not move the valve, do not release any pressure.  After about 15 minutes, most, if not all of the pressure will have released on it’s own.  Check to see if there is any remaining pressure by carefully moving the valve to the “vent” position.  If steam comes out, close the vent and let it sit for another 5 minutes and then try again.

Ingredients for making Pot Roast with Gravy in the Ninja Foodi:


  • 2-4 pounds chuck roast- cut into 4X4 inch pieces
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-minced
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce or paste
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 3 cups beef broth- 4 cups if you want extra gravy
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme– can use fresh if you have it
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary– can use fresh if you have it
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4-8 ounces sliced mushrooms- alter amount based on preference
  • 1 pound red potatoes-skin on, cut in half
  • 1 pound carrots-peeled and cut in half
  • Corn starch slurry-3 tablespoons corn starch mixed with 6 tablespoons water

Directions for making Pot Roast with Gravy in the Ninja Foodi:


1Cut chuck roast into 4X4 inch pieces.  If you opt to not cut your roast into pieces, you will need to increase the pressure cook time from 65 minutes to 90 minutes.


2Turn NInja Foodi on “saute”on hi and let it heat up.  While the Ninja Foodi is heating up, lightly season chuck roast with salt and pepper on all sides.  Once Ninja Foodi is heated up, pour in 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil and then add chuck roast. Saute roast on each side for 2-3 minutes- you just want to sear it and not cook it through.  Continue to turn until all sides are seared.  This should take about 10 minutes.  Remove roast from pot and set aside.


3Pour in the chopped onion and saute for 3 minutes. When you add in the onions, they will create a bit of liquid, you want to use this liquid to deglaze the pot to make sure that nothing burns to the bottom during the pressure cooking process.  Do so by gently scraping the bottom and the sides of the pot with a plastic or silicone spoon or spatula.  Do not use a metal utensil as you may scratch your pot. 


4Add in the garlic, tomato paste, and red wine and stir for one minute. Pour in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and rosemary. Stir and then add the seared chuck roast back to the Ninja Foodi.  Add the bay leaf on top.


5Close Ninja Foodi pressure cooking lid and move valve to “seal” position.  Pressure cook on high for 65 minutes.  Reminder- if you are using a roast that has been cut into 4X4 inch pieces, pressure cook for 65 minutes.  If you are using a whole uncut roast, pressure cook for 90 minutes.  For frozen meat, cook for the same amount of time.  The Ninja Foodi will take much longer to get up to pressure with frozen meat.  During this additional time, the roast will start to thaw.  No additional pressure cook time is needed.


6When timer beeps, naturally release pressure for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, move valve to “vent” to remove any additional pressure.  There should be little to no pressure left.  If a lot of steam is still coming out of the vent, close the vent and wait an additional 5 minutes and then vent again.


7Remove roast from Ninja Foodi.  Add in the carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms. 


8Close pressure cooker lid and move the valve to “seal” position.  Pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. 


9When timer beeps, quick-release pressure by moving the valve to the “vent” position. 


10Once all pressure has been released, open the lid and remove the vegetables.  Set aside.  Turn Ninja Foodi on saute, high and pour in corn starch slurry. I like to make my corn starch slurry in a mason jar with the lid on it.  A few shakes and you are all set!  Stir for 2-3 minutes using a whisk until gravy has thickened and is smooth in texture.  For a super smooth gravy, pour gravy into gravy boat over a mesh strainer.  Serve roast with vegetables and gravy!  Enjoy!
