So, ummm Christmas Eve is tomorrow… WHAT?!
Where did this year go??? I feel like it was March yesterday!
And guys, I’m sort of in love with my Instant Pot. Jake gave it to me for my birthday and it is seriously the most used kitchen gadget (minus the food processor). It makes meatballs in less than 20 minutes! I mean how could you NOT love it!?
I know a lot of people who bought them when Amazon had a sale a little while ago and it still lives in the box it came in because they are too afraid to use it. It’s not scary I PROMISE!
You want to know what the very first thing I made in mine? Pressure cooked plain chicken breast for Max (our kitty) because he had an upset tummy and plain chicken always made him feel better. The things I do because I love their furry little faces! –SWOON- yes, I am THAT person, get over it.
Anyways, quick and easy meal are a must for the holidays. And if you’re in the same boat as us, then you have out-of-town guests, relatives, brothers, and your stepdad’s mother coming over. And I would rather spend time with them than babysit a stove all afternoon! Enter this fabulous Cranberry Pot Roast!
Cranberries and beef just go together. The cranberries bring out such a unique flavor from the beef (and not in an overwhelming way) more like a subtle tartness that amplifies the juicy, tender, fall apart roast.
Umm drooling over here.
And in the Instant Pot, it’s done in 45 minutes! Or you can easily have this on low and slow all day in the crockpot. And guess what? I’ll teach you how to cook it both ways! But seriously, the Instant Pot is a worthwhile investment and I highly recommend getting one!
I like to serve this over some creamy mashed potatoes and a side of roasted carrots and baby portabella mushrooms or a salad.
I CANNOT wait for tomorrow!!!!
