In case you’re wondering…
I’m still in love with our Instant Pot!
This afternoon I made a pot roast for our church homecoming dinner tomorrow. BUTTT – my entire family couldn’t get over that smell and we decided to eat it for dinner instead, lol. So now I have to make something else for church. OOOps.
Here is our fall apart pot roast in less than hour, with the Instant Pot!
2 bags of carrots
1 packet of Slow Cooker Pot Roast seasoning
3 packages of pot roast meat
Half of a sweet onion
1 carton of Beef Broth, low sodium
20 or so small potatoes
I used our 8 quart Instant Pot, Ultra.
#shareitsaturday tip of the week: Lesson learned – I moved my Instant Pot onto our kitchen counter that does not have cabinets directly above it. When the pressure releases, the steam will hit your cabinets if they are directly above. Also, I put our pot by the door so I could open the door when I release the pressure. Whatever you’re cooking will have a STRONG smell when you release. Since this had onion, I would rather let most of that smell out the door so it’s not too strong for days.
First, add the entire carton of beef broth.
Then, add the meat and cover with pepper, meat tenderizer and the entire packet of pot roast seasoning.
I did not stir my seasoning in. Although you totally could, if you feel like it. Or not. LOL.
Then, I added the carrots and the potatoes.
Then, the onion on top.
Next, put the top on and when it is locked and ready, the power will turn on.
I used the Meat/Stew setting on 35 minutes.
It will take 10-15 minutes to preheat, depending on how much you have in the pot. Mine was almost full.
Make sure you have the little button on the top NOT pressed in. This will allow the pressure to stay inside. If your lid on correctly, the pressure will be locked automatically.
Once the preheating is complete, the Instant Pot will automatically begin cooking and you will begin to see the timer count down.
Once the timer finishes, the pot will begin beeping.
Don’t press any buttons on the front of the pot, instead just release the pressure button on the top. Oh, and open your kitchen door to let the smell out.
Then, your pot will automatically go to “warm” setting. I just let mine sit.
FOR 42 MINUTES.
I had some work to do and the instant pot was my friend. Just sitting and keeping my dinner warm.
And tada – DELICIOUSNESS!!!
The pot roast completely fell apart. We LOVED it.
And now I have nothing for church dinner tomorrow…
Also, if you put the lid back onto the pot after opening, the pressure will automatically lock again and you’ll need to release the pressure to open the pot again.
