How long to cook London Broil?
How well do you like your beef roast cooked is what you should be asking. Cooking any meat in the pressure cooker can be tricky.
You may have to experiment a few times before you get it just right, the way you like a beef roast cooked.
I like my beef cooked well done but if you like your beef medium or rare you will not need to pressure cook it more than 15 or 20 minutes.
Because of the high pressure that builds up inside a pressure cooker beef roasts can be cooked very quickly.
Overcooking a beef roast in the Instant Pot is possible. A lot depends on how thick the piece of meat is.

Top round is a lean, hard-working muscle of the steer that can sometimes be tough no matter how perfectly you cook it.
Properly slicing the meat will help to make it more tender by cutting the long muscle fibers.
