Rural Missouri - January 2020 - 29

Mom's Pot Roast
2 tablespoons canola oil
3 pounds round or chuck roast, trimmed
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 medium red onions, quartered
3 medium garlic cloves
1 small bag baby carrots
1 cup jarred pepperoncini salad peppers, plus 2 tablespoons extra liquid
from jar
1/2 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons butter
1-ounce packet ranch dressing mix
Prepared egg noodles or mashed potatoes
Select saute setting on your Instant Pot, then select high temperature setting and allow to preheat. Add oil to cooker. Pat roast dry,
then sprinkle all sides with salt and pepper. Add roast; cook, turning
often, until browned, 10 minutes. Remove from cooker. Add onions and garlic to cooker. Cook 2 minutes, stirring often to scrape
browned bits, until just softened. Press cancel button, then add
browned roast, carrots, peppers, broth, butter and contents of the
ranch dressing mix packet.
Cover cooker with lid, and lock in place. Turn steam release
handle to sealing position. Select manual setting, then select high
pressure for 55 minutes. (It will take 8 to 10 minutes to come up to
pressure before cooking starts.)
When time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally, about 10
to 12 minutes. Remove lid; transfer roast to a serving platter with a
lip. Stir pepperoncini juice into juices in cooker. Top roast with onion
mixture; pour juices in cooker over mixture. Sprinkle with herbs.
Serve with hot mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

Chicken and Dumplings
2-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cubed
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken stock
2 onions, chopped
2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch rounds
2 stalks celery, diced
4 garlic cloves, chopped

2-1/4 cups flour, divided
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter

In a medium bowl, season the chicken with salt and pepper
as desired.
Turn an Instant Pot on to the saute setting. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and let heat until shimmering. Add the
chicken in two batches, without crowding, and cook until
brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon,
transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and pieces
of chicken.
Add the wine and scrape to loosen the browned bits from
the bottom of the pot. Add the onions, carrots and celery.
Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 45 to 60 seconds.
Add 1/4 cup of the flour and stir to combine. (The mixture
will be thick.) Add the chicken stock and water; stir until
well combined. Return the reserved chicken and any accu-

mulated juices to the pot.
Meanwhile, in a second medium bowl, combine the
remaining 2 cups flour, baking powder, thyme leaves and
salt. In a small saucepan or liquid measuring cup in the
microwave, heat the milk and butter until the butter is
melted; season with black pepper. Add the milk mixture to
the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Drop the dough, about 1 tablespoon at a time, into
the chicken mixture in the pot. Cover and cook on high
pressure until the dumplings are cooked through and the
vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Let the pressure
release naturally. Taste and adjust for seasoning with salt
and pepper.
Ladle into warmed bowls and garnish with additional
thyme. Serve immediately.
