Ninja Foodi 3 Packet Pot Roast 

I am loving my Ninja Foodi. It is such a handy kitchen accessory that I recommend adding to your Christmas wish list if you haven’t gotten one yet. It is essentially a pressure cooker and air fryer in one. 

A classic pot roast flavor that is so crazy simple it will win over the whole family after the first bite.

How to Thicken The Sauce in A Pot Roast 

You will want to remove the meat and veggies from the pot, and then create a cornstarch slurry that you will stir into the liquid. After a few minutes of being warm, it will begin to thicken like gravy. The full instructions are below. 

It is a great way to create a gravy that you can spoon over your roast to add flavor. 

What Vegetables Do You Add-In With 3 Packet Roast 

I added in baby carrots and then potatoes. You are more than welcome to toss in other vegetables if you would like. This is up to you on what you like to eat with your roast. Just add in the veggies the same time as the carrot and potatoes in the recipe below.

What Is The Best Cut Of Beef For Cooking A Roast 

  • Chuck
  • Bottom Round
  • Brisket 
  • Shoulder
  • Etc

Because you are going to be pressure cooking this roast, you are welcome to use almost any pot roast cut. Since it cooks high pressure it will help to break down and tenderize the meat rather fast. 

Do I Need To Use All 3 Packets of Seasoning 

I would say yes to this. If you don’t I think you could find that your pot roast lacks a bit of flavor. I have not tried making it with only two, or using two of the same one to replace one I didn’t use. If you do this, I would say there is a risk it might not turn out. So it is up to you if you choose to leave a packet out of the recipe.

  1. I made this recipe last night, the roast was delicious but the carrots and baby potatoes were way over cooked. I should have used my judgment as I’ve used a stovetop pressure cooker for decades and I shouldn’t have pressured the veggies nearly that long!

  2. Omg, this was delicious! So tender and flavorful! (I used 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes, to use the bag up! )

  3. OMGOODNESS! This was amazing! My husband said it was the best roast I’ve ever made! I was nervous about using the pressure cooker option on my Foodi for a roast, I’d only done them in slow cooking mode, up to this point. Boy was I happy I tried it! It was SO tender, came out of the pot in about 5 pieces. That’s always a good sign! It was moist and flavorful by itself but the gravy was delicious as well! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. OMG , I was very skeptical but wow so good . I used a rump roast and maybe cooked it about 10 minutes more also added onions and 2 garlic cloves in the beginning browning stage. Will definitely make again, thank you!

  5. Delicious! The quick release caused liquid to spray all over everything though so I guess I won’t do that next time. Other than that it was great!

    1. Oh shoot I am so sorry to hear. Let me double check the recipe and make sure I have a controlled release rather than a quick release.
