Instant Pot

When Instant Pot first started popping up among my friends, I wasn’t all that interested. I thought, “I have plenty of kitchen gadgets, including two slow cookers, no way I need that thing.” As I started learning more about Instant Pot though, I became intrigued.

I became so intrigued that I was secretly hoping my main slow cooker would die so that I would have an excuse to purchase an Instant Pot. Then last fall, my dreams came true: my main slow cooker stopped working.

Stove Top Woes

I discussed in my Chicken Tikka Masala (Slow Cooker or Instant Pot) post that the first few days with my Instant Pot were not ideal. In an unfortunate set of circumstances, I ruined the pot on my stove top. I purchased a new one and vented to my girlfriends about the mishap. My friend Becky said something along the lines of, “once you make a pot roast in your Instant Pot, it’ll change your life and you won’t even care you had to buy another one.”

Friends, Becky was correct. Instant Pot pot roast will change your pot roast making life. Slow cooker pot roast is good, but when you make it in the Instant Pot, the beef just falls apart it’s so tender and juicy. It cannot be beat. This recipe uses two seasoning packets, which makes it easy, and quite flavorful. A fabulous meal for any night of the week.
