Instant Pot!

I am beyond excited and feeling more “adult” then ever. Who would have thought I would get so excited about getting a new kitchen appliance. Well, it happened! I am beyond thrilled. I’ve spent the last couple hours trying to convince myself to at least try and be a little critical of this thing but I can’t find one single thing to complain about and/or critique. It’s awesome and I already highly recommend it.

Here’s the recipe!

  • Your cheese of choice.

Directions:

1. Season the roast to taste.

That’s it. It truly is that simple! AMAZING!
