Instant Pot Dinner Haiku

Instant Pot rescue ~

Mississippi Pot Roast night

forgot this morning

recovering my

fumble of tonight’s dinner

we’ll see how this goes………

Mississippi Pot Roast


3 pound chuck roast

1 package Au Jus

1 package Ranch Dressing mix

1 stick butter

Pepperoncini peppers, 7 or 8, and 1/2 jar of the vinegar

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.

Add vegetables to the pot if you wish – carrots, petite red or gold potatoes

Our Conclusion: I recovered the fumble but scored no touchdown. There is no comparison between the Instant Pot and the Crock Pot! Cook this one low and slow in the Crock Pot and not high and fast in the Instant Pot. It scored a passing grade and was tasty, but not melt-in-your-mouth delicious as it usually is. The meat was not as tender, and the potatoes were a bit too soft. But hey – now we know the scoop!
