I have always been a fan of making a Sunday Pot Roast. I think because I grew up where my mom would put on a roast before church on Sundays and we’d always have a great meal come dinner time. Meals with memories are some of the best, right? While this pressure cooker pot roast has an updated cooking method, it’s just as comforting and delicious as the traditional Sunday supper.

- Cover and cook on high. Allow pressure to release naturally, before venting any remaining pressure.
- Remove roast and veggies from pot and serve family style.
