Pot roast, potatoes and carrots arranged in white bowl.

Instant Pot Pot Roast

Instant Pot Pot Roast is hands-down the fastest and easiest version of this classic comfort food! It’s fall-apart tender, moist, and covered in a flavorful gravy. Plus the creamy baby potatoes and tender carrots are made right in the same pot! 

I am a huge fan of taking classic recipes and transforming them for the Instant Pot. Because what could be better than your childhood favorite recipes than making them easier and faster? This Easy Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff and this Instant Pot Mac and Cheese are some great ones to try!

But, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can also make this lentil soup with sausage on the stove.

I’m a big fan of flavorful Brussels sprouts. One classic flavor combination is Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Reduction and Cranberries. I also love Smashed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Tahini Sauce.
