One Pot is all you need to make this delicious and comforting Beef Pot Roast. Recipe is also adaptable for the Slow Cooker and Instant Pot!
I’m all about comfort food. You know, homestyle cooking, just like mom used to make? Well one of my favorite comfort meals to make is Pot Roast. It’s really simple, but it reminds me of growing up. Even though my mom worked full-time, she was always there to make us a home cooked dinner. Sure, just like today, there were days where dinner was something really simple, and even special occasions where she would bring home a pizza. But, for the most part, she always made great, homestyle, meals.
The best part about this Pot Roast recipe is you can braise it in the oven, OR you can throw everything in the Crock Pot or Instant Pot. Either way, it’s sure to please. In this recipe I use carrots and potatoes cooked right in with the roast. I always loved biting into those chunks of cooked potatoes dripping in the juice from the roast, and those carrots, roasted to perfection. Can you taste it yet?
