Instant Pot AIP Homestyle Pot Roast

Probably one of my favorite paleo comfort foods is a classic homestyle pot roast, all juicy and tender with carrots and onions piled on top of some creamy cauliflower mashers. I love the way cooking a pot roast makes the house smell, especially on a cool wintry, rainy day. You could add some Japanese Sweet Potatoes too if you want, yum!
  • Turn Instant Pot to saute and add oil
  • when simmering add pot roast 2-3 minutes each side
  • turn paleo pot roast to sear on other side for 2-3 minutes
  • Top with sliced onion and carrots
  • Pour in the water or broth
  • stew for 70 minutes
