Instant Pot Pot Roast with Balsamic Gravy

GUYS!

I’m so excited to share this recipe for Instant Pot Pot Roast with you, not only because shredded beef is one of my favorite foods ever, but also because it’s comin’ atcha from Natalie Perry’s new cookbook, The Big Book of Paleo Pressure Cooking.

You may remember Natalie’s first cookbook, The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking from my Crock Pot Citrus Pork Chili with Mango post last year. She’s seriously an absolute rock star at recipe development in general and I’m amazed by her ability to generate such easy yet creative and delicious one-pot meals.

The way I see it, The Big Book of Paleo Pressure Cooking is perfect for the pressure cooking newbie to the pressure cooking maven. I’m still fairly new to my Instant Pot, and have found Natalies recipes to be so easy to follow. AND THEY’RE ALL SO GOOD! <- sorry to yell at your face.

The Big Book of Paleo Pressure Cooking includes an introduction that gives you the full rundown on how a pressure cooker (any brand, not just Instant Pot!) works.

Hey, you! How was your Thanksgiving?

My family kept things traditional and mellow, with a turkey, a couple vegetable side dishes, mashed sweet potatoes, and that Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake I showed you last week. *Simple* goes a long way in keeping things light and fun in my family!

While the couple months surrounding Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year can be disorienting for many of us, I’m doing what I can to stick to my regular eating and exercise regimen this year (last year was a doozy for me!!) even if that does sound like an epic snooze fest.

For me, that means not allowing myself to get carried away with sugary blissful treats (you know how I love my sugar…) and not allowing other people’s re-evaluation of their own habits seep through to mine. I’m still developing dessert recipes, just doing everything in my power to keep the consumption of them at a reasonable level.

And so!

Meals like this Instant Pot Sausage and Cabbage Soup continue to be my main squeeze. I love them so.

Words can’t adequately describe how much I love this recipe for Paleo Instant Pot Short Ribs. I’ve made short ribs countless times over the years, and the Instant Pot version is by far my favorite approach.

First off, cooking short ribs in the Instant Pot requires far less time than the stove top, oven, and slow cooker approach. For the longest time, I reserved short ribs for very special occasions because of the length of time required…but this method only takes just over an hour, if you can believe it!

Secondly, the actual end result is so consistently amazing – mouth-wateringly tender, fall-of-the-bone bliss…le sigh…

This is the life.
