Note that an Italian dressing dry seasoning packet can be used instead of the above seasonings as a time saver for this recipe!
Tip: Your cook time may vary a little with roast size in the Instant Pot. My roast was 3.2 pounds and I searched online to find 70 minutes was about average for a cook time, and added a 15 minutes natural release with it. If I had a larger 5-6 pound roast, most sites say 80-90 minutes for super tender meat.
