Instant Pot Mushroom Pot Roast

So….we’re getting a little “budget gourmet” with these flavors here!

This is a FABULOUS “weeknight supper” – a SCRUMPTIOUS “company’s coming” – a DELECTABLE “I need to impress my mother-in-law” kind of meal.

It’s rich, it’s packed with lovely complementary flavors. And it’s super cheap to make!

Use an inexpensive cut of beef – like a chuck roast. If you need to skip anything, skip the white cooking wine and replace with beef stock or milk. Let the Instant Pot take care of all the “heavy lifting” when it comes to the cooking.

And you’ll end up with a meal that gets raving reviews from everyone at the table! Enjoy!

P.S. For a gluten free version, use the Pacific brand cream of mushroom soup that comes in the little box. 🙂
