To begin making Instant Pot Venison Rump Roast with Potatoes and Cherry Gravy I turned the Instant Pot to the Saute Normal Function for 5 minutes.

Then I added some olive oil and threw in some chopped up yellow onion.

Next I added in the venison rump roast.

I seared the venison roast on all sides before removing it to deglaze the Pot.

After the venison roast was removed I poured in beef broth and deglazed by scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the Instant Pot.

This is a very important step to avoid the Burn message later when the Pot is coming to pressure.

Once deglazing was finished I poured in one can of bing cherries and juice.  I also added a bit of black pepper.

Next I put the venison rump roast on a trivet and surrounded it with potatoes.  I used red but you can use whatever you prefer.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 40 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 15 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

After removing the lid I carefully transferred the roast and potatoes to a cutting board and draped them in tinfoil.

Once the venison roast was resting I drained off some of the liquid.  I left about 2 cups of liquid in the Pot.  I did not measure but just eyeballed it.

Then I turned the Instant Pot back on to the Saute Normal Function for 5 minutes and added two packets of gluten free brown gravy mix.

I stirred until it boiled and thickened.  Once it was boiling I turned the Pot off.

When the gravy was ready I sliced up the venison roast.

This pressure cooker rump roast was so tender and moist.  Serve it up with potatoes that were also cooked to the perfect tenderness in the Instant Pot.

Smother your serving in the thick cherry gravy before indulging.

Instant Pot Venison Rump Roast with Potatoes and Cherry Gravy was a delectable treat!  Add your favourite vegetable or side salad to complete the meal.
