In the Winter, Pot Roast is one of my favorite meals to make and enjoy. It is an easy, hearty meal that just hits the spot on a cold winter evening. With my recent obsession of my Instant Pot, I wanted to experiment with making my Pot Roast in the Pot. Let’s just say, I am super happy with how it turned out and I didn’t have to start it in the morning like the Crock Pot or pot on the stovetop!
One note that I am going to give you is for the amount of time to pressurize the roast, I approximated 20 minutes per pound. My roast was just under 3 pounds so I set it to 55 minutes and it came out perfect!
