When it comes to a Sunday dinner, nothing beats a classic as pot roast! Slow cooked dinners that can be cooked in a slow cooker, instant pot or in the oven. A complete meal with veggies cooked right along your meat.
WHAT IS POT ROAST?
Pot roast is a big, tough beef cut (usually a cheap cut perfect for slow cooking), seared, covered and cooked slow with herbs and veggies in a flavourful broth until fall apart tender.
A good pot roast can be made with any cut of beef roast: chuck roast, round roast, or briskets. The beef is seasoned and seared then added to your slow cooker or Instant pot with a braising liquid—for this recipe you’re going to use beef broth and balsamic vinegar which helps tenderise the meat and add a deeper flavour.
There are three main steps to the most perfect Pot Roast, whichever option you choose:
- SEAR your roast first: the flavour you get when searing your meat first is incredible. The fat is rendered while juices are sealed. This step is well worth the extra time and dishes. While slow cooking, the meat will release amazing flavour into your gravy.
- ADD veggies.
- SLOW COOK using whichever method you like!
The amazing bonus is the rich gravy that get cooked right in the pot to drizzle all over your beef roast!
POT ROAST VEGETABLES
A pot roast usually includes a classic mix:
POTATOES: Yukon gold or red potatoes peeled russet potatoes. You will love the buttery texture of Yukon months pot roast recipe.
ONIONS: White or yellow onion are the best to use for adding flavour while slow braising.
CARROTS: Add them peeled or unpeeled. Make sure you cut them into thick chunks, as slicing them into thin discs will turn to mush.
BEST ROASTS FOR MAKING POT ROAST
Tough cuts with lots of connective tissue that would be like chewing shoe leather if you cooked it quickly in a pan are the perfect cuts to use.
- Chuck Roast: tender, falls apart and easy to shred.
- Brisket: has a lot of connective tissue making it fattier cut that gets super tender while cooking slow, but can still be sliced for serving
- Round: (bottom round, top round) a lean and easy to slice cut.
Slow cooking these cuts breaks the collagen down, tenderising the meat. The beef releases its juices into the broth, providing your roast with incredible flavour. Adding flour or cornstarch turns that liquid gold into a delicious, thick gravy.
HOW TO MAKE POT ROAST IN A SLOW COOKER (CROCK POT)
Season roast with a good amount of salt and pepper and sear on all sides until browned (about 5-6 minutes each side). Transfer roast to the bowl of a 6-quart slow cooker. Add in all remaining ingredients and cook on low 8 hours. The meat will be so tender and falling apart, and the vegetables soft. Remember to taste test and add any extra balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt or pepper, until reaching your desired flavour.
PRO TIP: It’s better to cook pot roast on the low setting rather than the high setting when it comes to pot roast. Your meat will be tender and delicious every time.
HOW TO MAKE POT ROAST IN AN INSTANT POT (ELECTRIC PRESSURE COOKER)
Heat oil in the Instant Pot and set to ‘Saute’. When oil is hot, sear on all sides until browned (about 4-5 minutes each side). Add in all remaining ingredients and cook on high pressure for 60 minutes, followed by a 15 minute natural release. Then use the quick pressure lever to release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid and transfer roast and veggies to a warm plate.
PRO TIP: the natural release portion of electric pressure cooking is an important step. We have found that if you release the pressure immediately after cooking, your beef may toughen up. Letting the pressure cooker sit for 15 minutes during the natural release stage produces a tender result.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 pounds (2 kg) chuck roast or blade roast, boneless and trimmed of excess fat
- 2 yellow onions chopped
- 8 cloves garlic smashed with the back of a spoon (or 2 tablespoons minced garlic)
- 1 pound (500 grams) baby potatoes, white or Yukon gold, (you may need to halve them if they are too large)
- 4 large carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
- 2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 teaspoons crushed bouillon
- 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
- 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
- 2 tablespoons plain flour (optional -- for a thick gravy)
- 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, to serve
- Heat oil in a large skillet or pan over high heat. Season roast with a good amount of salt and pepper. Sear on all sides until browned (about 5-6 minutes each side). Transfer roast to the bowl of a 6-quart slow cooker.
- Add the onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, celery, balsamic, mustard, brown sugar, thyme and bouillon. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix the stock together with the flour and pour into the slow cooker bowl (don't worry about any lumps, they will cook out).
- Cook on low setting for 8 hours, or until meat is tender and falling apart and the vegetables are soft.
- Taste test and add any extra balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt or pepper, if needed.
- Slice meat, garnish with parsley and drizzle with gravy.
- Season roast with a good amount of salt and pepper. Heat oil in the Instant Pot and set to 'Saute'. When oil is hot, sear on all sides until browned (about 4-5 minutes each side).
- Add the onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, celery, balsamic, mustard, brown sugar, thyme and bouillon. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix the stock together with the flour and pour into the slow cooker bowl (don't worry about any lumps, they will cook out). Place lid on Instant pot with steam valve closed.
- Change Instant Pot setting to 'manual' mode for 60 minutes on 'high' pressure.
- When time is up and cooker beeps, turn off and allow pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, use the quick pressure lever to release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid and transfer roast and veggies to a warm plate.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Heat oil in a dutch oven or heavy based oven-proof pot over medium-high heat. Season roast all over with a good amount of salt and pepper. Sear until brown on all sides (about 4-5 minutes each side).
- Transfer roast to a plate. Sauté onions until transparent, then add garlic and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the stock and balsamic vinegar to deglaze your pan, scraping up any browned bits. Whisk in the flour and let cook for about 4 minutes (don't worry about any lumps, they will cook out).
- Transfer roast back into the pot. Add the potatoes, carrots, celery, mustard, brown sugar, thyme and bouillon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bring to a simmer, cover with lid (or foil) and transfer to the oven. Roast for 3-4 hours until the meat is tender and falling apart. (Check roast after 1 1/2 hours. If the liquid has mostly been absorbed, stir in 1 cup of extra broth and continue cooking.)
- Transfer the roast, carrots, and potatoes to a warm plate. With a spoon, skim the fat off the surface of the cooking liquid. Cut the roast into thick slices, and serve with the vegetables. Pass the pan juices separately.
I made this for Christmas dinner, it was delicious. My family enjoyed it, I would definitely make it again.
This recipe only calls for 1 cp of broth. Is this enough?
Jason Woodfin says
All the liquid from the vegetables and the meat will help. Definitely don’t need more than a cup.
I made this a month ago and here I am making it again! By far the best recipe the flavor is marvelous! Make it your family will love it!
I want to get in a better habit of leaving reviews on recipes we try, so here we go!
I decided to make this for our Thanksgiving lunch this year, since our family prefers all things English (roast, puddings, etc). We generally like the pot roast in its entirety, with carrots and potatoes cooked alongside the meat to enhance their flavor. But I decided to go a different route this year and make glazed carrots and a mashed potato recipe separately.
I opted to give this recipe a go exclusively with the roast and sauce or gravy, and it did not disappoint. I did have a small issue with the gravy thickening too much, despite adding the extra liquid as instructed. It wasn’t a big deal, though. We ended up thinning it out after removing the roast, cooking it down a little to reach that perfect texture, and saving the remainder in a mason jar for leftovers. When we reheated it for dinner, we had to thin it out again, but the flavor is superb.
I’m bookmarking this one so we can make it again for our Christmas roast!
This recipe is the bomb. You can substitute balsamic vinegar with red wine vinegar for more robust taste. I cooked with an oven and it came out perfectly.
I did this in the oven, instead of slow cooker, in my cast iron pot at 350 for 1.5 hrs, then 325 for the next 1.5 and it was so good. Close to the end, I made little dumplings and had to add a little broth because the liquid had reduced a lot. But flavour-wise, it was spot-on and the meat was very tender without completely breaking down.
Winnie Wright says
I’ve made this twice now. My husband a country boy says each time…. Nothing like good ole home cooking! I add a bit more of the balsamic vinegar and broth because he loves a lot of gravy. I thicken it on the stove top with cornstarch after I remove it from the oven.
Carrie Tomlin says
I made this recipe yesterday, and my husband (a total foodie) loved it! I added all of the ingredients at once instead of mixing and pouring. I might do that differently next time. Still, the flavors blended really well! I only had a few onions on hand, so next time I will add more. They were delicious! I substituted celery seed for actual celery and used a chicken bouillon powder instead of beef (that was all I had!). It was very flavorful! I accidentally added a pinch too much brown sugar. Thankfully, you couldn’t tell. I loved the use of balsamic vinegar and garlic. Delish! We cooked it on low for about 6 hours and it was perfectly juicy. Will make again!
Donna Gundrum says
Perfect! Deserves ten stars!
I used oven method with my Dutch oven.
Cooking for two, halved the veggies and doubled the stock. Otherwise followed recipe exactly.
Hi Donna – so I’m trying this recipe for the first time in my slow cooker., I noticed in the comments you used your Dutch oven. What was you oven temp and for how long? I’d like to try it for my husband and I. Thanks so much,
Maria from PA says
I almost gave up on pot roast – until this recipe! Easy, delicious , everyone loved it! My husband had seconds – he doesn’t even care for pot roast!! I used a large crockpot, followed recipe exactly. Mine didn’t thicken enough for my liking so I poured the liquid in a pot and thickened it. This is a keeper and a repeater for sure! Thanks for the great recipe!!
Made this in the crock pot today… absolute YUM! Left out bullion because I didn’t have it, and I don’t think it was missing anything at all. So flavorful and good. This will be my go-to pot roast recipe now. Thank you!
Gordon Lancaster says
I made the oven version with a 4 lb. blade roast in a Dutch oven. I think the only thing I would change is putting the vegetables (carrots, onions, celery parsnips etc.) in so early as they barely survived the four hour cook time, if at all, although I think they contributed to the great tasting gravy.. The meat was super tender and tasty and the gravy was to die for. I used two cups of beef stock and one cup of good red wine in the process and the rest of the Cab went great with the dinner. The house still smell great, looking forward to the leftovers..
Wonderful flavor! Just got done devouring for dinner. Definitely will be making again in the future.
As I noted in another comment, I used the oven method. The instructions are missing an important step as they have you remove the meat from the pot before you saute the garlic then add broth & balsamic to deglaze, but nowhere does it state when to add the meat back to the pot before putting it into the oven. (I just placed the meat back in making room for it on top/among the veggies which worked fine.
I added extra broth (about 1 cup) before putting it in the oven because it just didn’t seem like enough liquid to me after it thickened. My husband checked it at the midway (1.5 hour) mark and didn’t think it needed more liquid so did not add any. After 3 hours it was ready. Would definitely recommended adding more broth though at the midway point even if it might look like you don’t need it as I really wish there were more gravy for use (the 2 cups I used before it went into the oven didn’t provide enough).
LOVE the flavor though.
Sheila Gagnon says
Excellent and easy!
I love potroast! Thank you for your great recipe. I enjoy trying different styles to see what works best.
Hi!! If I have a 2 lb roast would you recommend cutting the measurements for all the seasonings in half?
This was fabulous! Even the usual “no red meat” eaters in the house yummed it up. I used the oven method and didn’t need to add any liquid during the cooking process. My only changes were that I skipped the bouillon and I used slightly less garlic, since I didn’t have a full 8 cloves on hand. I won’t do it differently next time – it came out perfectly.
Sherise Micka says
I made this in a crock pot. The wait was so worth it. Tender, but juicy! I served it was a side salad and seasoned white rice. This dish was the talk of the night.
1st time making. Subbed the basalmic for apple cider vinegar and eyed it rather than measure everything, but tasted great! Thanks for the tip on searing it!
Jeff Smith says
Made this in the crock pot today. After browning the roast, I added a little more olive oil and tossed in the onions to brown a bit while scraping up the tasty fond from the pan. Then threw in the garlic for the last few seconds to bloom. Didn’t have beef bouillon or broth, so I substituted Better than Bouillon and a can of Campbell’s Consomme. Also two nice sprigs of fresh thyme from the garden. The family loved it!
This is the best crock pot roast I’ve ever made. The only change I made was adding a few bay leaves. Very tender and flavorful and tender. The gravy is wonderful.
My son and I made it in the Instant pot and it came out amazing! This was the 1st time we’d had pot roast and we all loved it. We followed the directions exactly. We marinated the meat the night before. Thanks for the great recipe!
Laura Lovell says
One of the easiest and most delicious pot roasts ever! Thank you.
Holy cow so good!!! Lick-the-bowl good!
David Bradshaw says
Just a few thoughts after having read through the comments: Yes, you can halve the cooking time for half the weight of meat. The bullion is just a highly concentrated beef flavoring, so if you substitute beef stock, either reduce it first, or you will have more watery gravy. Or just add extra flour (cornstarch works too). Same with adding wine or other liquids. I also combined ingredients before adding to the pot, mostly to thaw my frozen minced garlic, but I think she’s right that the slow cooking really does blend and infuse the flavors everywhere anyway.
Thanks for the tip on the cooking time.
Small roast = less time!
I made this on 5/11/20 using the oven method provided. I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn’t have any bouillon. So I searched for a substitute recipe and improvised using a little bit of each herb listed in the recipe. Let me tell you, it was so delicious! Tasted even better today. Yummy! Thank you for the recipe!
Thank you for this recipe. Can you suggest a temperature if my roast is only 2 – 2.5 pounds and we’d still like to slow cook? Can I reduce the temperature so cooking time in the oven is still 3-4 hours?
I take the temp down to 280/140 and check the liquid every hour
what can I sub for Bouillon?
I didn’t use the bouillon- I just used beef stock
Marsha Witherspoon says
I use the onion garlic or beefy onion dry soup mix
Leslie Sullivan says
I never remember to pull meat out of the freezer, so I just threw everything in the slow cooker (frozen meat and all) and cooked it on low for 8 hours and OH MY GOSHHHHH I didn’t even know pot roast could taste this good!! Make sure you have some crusty bread or rolls with it because you are going to want to soak up EVERY BIT of that amazing sauce.
Tom O says
The recipe for the oven method did not work for me. The liquid seemed short to me so I added 2 cups of broth and even that amount wasn’t enough and ended up having a burnt taste. If I made this again I would cut the cooking time and increase the liquid even more.
Delicious Pot Roast! Easy to make. This is the second recipe I have used from Karina. I have not being disappointed both times. You can tell she puts a lot of love into her cooking. Thank you Karina!!
I used three cups of beef broth instead of just one, extra Knorr flavoring, added a cup of red wine, a touch of Worcestershire, and a teaspoon each of rosemary and thyme. The sauce came out phenomenal! My fiance said we should make it into a drink with vodka and I agreed. Call it a Beefy Mary! 😂
Madeleine Fuchs says
Thank you so much for this Pot Roast recipe. I cooked it in the oven and it came out delicious.
Today we made delicious sandwiches for lunch with bakery rolls.
BEST pot roast I’ve ever had!!! The entire family raved about it for days.
Thank you for a great recipe.
I cooked my beef in the slow cooker. I mixed a quarter cup red wine and probably three tablespoons of corn starch and dumped that in after I had removed the beef and vegetables because I like my gravy to be a really thick sauce, and wow! This is the first beef roast that I would make again, and I was so impressed that this is the first time that I have ever left a comment on a recipe! This has convinced me that I’m going to have to start buying cheap cuts of meat more often! And just throwing everything in the Crock Pot for eight hours couldn’t be easier. With a crusty loaf on the side, this will feed my family for days!
I made this using the oven method, and with a couple of minor adjustments (I used a small sprinkling of white sugar and squirt of honey, some extra broth as it sat after removing from oven), it produced the best pot roast I have ever had in my life. That is no exaggeration.
simon andrew says
I like it
Darlene Schmoll says
Isn’t the 60 minute cooking time a little long to be pressure cooked? I did a 3# roast with vegetable for 30 minutes and the roast was fine but the vegetables were mush.
I’ve been making pot roast for my husband since we married 11 years ago. It’s always his favorite meal, but we both felt it was missing something. In a moment of brilliance, I thought to search your website and made this version last week. It was amazing! I’ll never make pot roast the old way again. Your site is my go-to recipe page!! I can’t wait to try something else.
This is the best roast I’ve ever had. I cooked for about 7-8 hours and enjoyed for days after. I did mix the mustard, balsamic, broth and flour together before i poured over the meat and veggies. More so i felt everything was evenly distributed. But it was the most off the charts roast. I’m making it tonight with mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans w/ garlic and rolls! Mmmmm and of course red wine!
That is the BEST pot roast I have ever made…..and I’ve made a lot!!! Made it exactly as written and it was perfect…seasoning perfect…cooked perfect. I did not include potatoes since we prefer mashed with our roast. The gravy was nicely thickened. One thing I will say is a must do is to dear that meat I heavily saddled and peppered it first. I believe it kept it moist and juicy. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe.
Steven Schwartz says
I used this recipe for a two pound top round roast. We like lots of gravy so we used the same amount of liquid as for the four pound roast in the recipe. The only change I made was to add about a half cup of dry white wine to the cooking liquid. It offset just a bit of the sweetness of the original recipe and made for a wonderful dinner. Thank you!
Hiedie Stokes says
I had a 3 pound blade and cooked it for 7 hours on low. It went a little dry so if your roast is a smaller size maybe don’t cook it as long. Otherwise the flavor was great.
Tyrique Bradley says
The recipe was great it was easy my girlfriend loved it ! The tastes as wonderful
Absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe! My family loved it!
I made this and it turned out great! I think it could’ve been better if I followed direction with seasoning the meat when searing. I added a little more beef stock for juice since my roast was half the size recommend. Thank you for this recipe!!
Can I put this together the night before and put it up in the slow cooker in the morning?
Bob Hall says
I’m cooking a 2LP blade roast in the crock pot. Your recipe is for a 4LP roast for 7-8 hrs on low. Does this mean that I can cut the cooking time in half, i.e. 4 hrs?
Wondering if you could please tell me how to adjust – both cooking time and liquid, for a 7 lb. boneless roast?
After reading your recipes and all the comments this is the recipe I want to trust my expensive roast to!
Thank you in advance for your reply.
I did the Crock-Pot version with sweet potato instead of nightshade potato, and . . . um, w.o.w! That sauce – heck. Fill up the bathtub and give me a straw, that’s so good. Thank you – keeper for sure!
The gravy is very rich and delicious. I love mustard and horseradish with roast beef and it is perfect to off set the flavors. Will make this again. Thank you
Best pot roast ever! Just made it tonight and the whole family loved it, said it was the best one I have ever made. I made the pot roast in the slow cooker, pulled some juice/gravy out and had to make the vegetables in the instant pot (too much roast in my slow cooker). Thank you for a great recipe
I tried this and it will now be my go to crock pot recipe. Makes a good “one bowl” meal with a hot roll, yum! Oven roasted my pot roast for years, but this is more tender and savory. I noticed one comment about a thinner final gravy-I left the crock pot lid ajar the last 15-20 minutes of time to reduce a bit of the liquid and it was perfect. Like others, Next time I think II will pan sear my veggies a bit prior to placing in the crock pot next time because I like how it intensifies the flavor. Perfect with those golden potatoes. Thanks for a keeper recipe.
Shannon Boyington says
If I make the gravy with gluten free flour will it change the taste or consistency?
My boyfriend absolutely raved about this pot roast, said it was one if the best ever. I will definitely make again! The only tweaks I made was I added a splash of red wine while combining the sauce and added Brussels sprouts about an hour before serving. Thanks for a stellar roast on a super chilly, snowy weekend!
Christy MoonSmith says
I used crock pot method. I used aged balsamic and doubled the garlic. PERFECT RECIPE!
I made this yesterday and my husband and I loved it. Going low carb next week so I think I can make it again without the potatoes and sugar. Thanks for the tasty recipe.
Sounds great, Sharon!
Roxy Ana says
I made it without the potatoes. It was the one ingredient that I didn’t already have.and I like to stay low carb. Came out nice.
I’ve been slow-cooking for years. This recipe, which I made twice this week, is now my *ALL-TIME FAVORITE*!! I am sending the link to all my fam & friends. Amazing!
Christy MoonSmith says
We loved this recipe! The only thing I did differently was after I moved the meat to the crock pot, I put the onions, carrots and potatoes in the beef drippings and sautéed them for about 5 minutes before I put then into the crock pot. This will be our go-to pot roast recipe from now on.
Robin Latronica says
Do you need to mix during the cooking process in the slow cooker?
Only if you would like to. The slow cooker will do the job ;)!!
Made this last night and it was fantastic. This was my second time using my crock pot. The first was ok, and kinda put me off a second attempt, so I’m glad that I found this recipe (and chuck roast on sale). 🙂
I followed the crock pot recipe pretty closely. It took me about 30 minutes in prep time (searing meat, peeling potatoes, chopping veggies). Put the meat into the pot first, then added the veggies and other ingredients Used dried rosemary instead of thyme, and did one yellow and one red onion, and skipped the vegetable stock powder (didn’t have any). And this still turned out great.
Wondering if the stock would have made the sauce thicker, and probably saltier, but I love it just the way it was. I cooked for 7 hours, and the meat definitely fell apart when touched (thought I would need to slice it, but wasn’t necessary).
I was worried that it didn’t have enough liquid, but after about 4 hours, I think the veggies started to sweat and contributed to the sauce.
I mixed the mustard and beef stock together before adding to ensure they were blended.
And I’m looking forward to the leftovers today, the flavors should have had more time to really mix and should be great.
Thanks for a great recipe!
I’m so glad I read this because I was worried there isn’t enough liquid and I didn’t have the vegetable stock.
Made this today in my crock pot, turned out delicious!!! I will definitely make this again.
That is great to hear! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! XO
Julie Eden says
Do you use prepared mustard or powdered mustard?
I use prepared mustard.
Waiting on this now! Just for extra flavor, before searing off the meat, i chopped all veggies, threw them on a foil covered cookie sheet, drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper and threw them under the broiler. Once the meat was seared, the veggies were softened with some caramelized bits. Perfect for added depth! Otherwise, it’s done to the letter.
I’ll write back later with the verdict from the fam!
Katie Thomas says
What was the verdict? 😉
Made this for dinner last night and the family was amazed with it. They loved it and I’m not a cooker…I can cook but I DO NOT like it but I enjoyed the pre time and definitely enjoyed the meal. Thank you for sharing all of your recipes.
Sounds great, but I suggest also searing the veggies first and set them aside before searing the meat for even better flavor.
I always thought you were supposed to put the veggies in the bottom of the pot and the roast on top – that’s what I’ve always done, and not sure if that’s the difference but I’ve never had to slice my roast – it falls apart in the pot and I scoop it out with a large serving spoon. I would also mix all the mustard and other things together then pour it in. Just my thoughts.
This was my first slow cooking attempt. I put the vegetables in first and the meat on top. I may have messed it up because the meat didn’t fall apart as easily.
While sitting back and congratulating myself on my efforts, I re-read the recipe and realized I messed up. A quick inversion and a few hours later, the result was phenomenal.
There is so much to do with a good chuck or blade roast (if I can find them, I like the ones with the bone-in) – I love this idea and have used it in the oven and crock pot. Also, I like to put a chuck roast in the crock pot and instead of broth or stock use a jar of salsa (some like it hot) along with onions and serranos and when done make burritos or tacos.
Yvonne Shannon says
If my roast is only half the size of yours, do I still in the Instant Pot cook it as long or do I cut the cooking time in half?
I would recommend cutting the time in half for the smaller roast. Enjoy! XO
Sharon Ng says
I put together this recipe without reading through all the directions. It was the first slow cooker recipe that showed up. I was dissapointed to find that its actually pressure cooked, not slow cooked, in the instant pot. I was looking for something to cook throughout the day while I was out of the house doing errands. This is done in just 80 minutes (less because I had a smaller cut). Will see how it tastes for dinner time after being on keep warm all day…
Katie Thomas says
Errr…what? This is a slow cooker recipe?!!!
Did you miss the two other ways you could have cooked it?? Just a tip, ALWAYS read ALL the instructions BEFORE you cook anything! 😉
What is your preferred method for cooking this? Looks delish!
I like using all three methods but I always love my slow cooker for the classic way. An instant pot is perfect for the speed process and still have the same flavor and tenderness.
Linda van den Elshout says
I love this recipe! Absolutely perfect.
In the oven method, the directions are confusing. It states to put the vegetables in at the same time as the meat into the oven. However, later, it states to add the veggies and then cook one more hour. Please let us know which it is. Thanks
Thanks for picking that up Jennifer! Recipe has been fixed ?
This was delicious! My husband hates roast and he loved it! I am making it twice this week.
YES! Julie that’s wonderful!
Amazing! Absolutely a keeper!!!!!
