- Freezer meals will become your best friend. As if we didn’t already love them enough, you can skip the thawing step and dump your freezer meal right into your Instant Pot to have dinner ready in no time! To go along with that, freeze your meals in round containers so they fit directly into your instant pot.
- Get familiar with the different methods you can use. It can seem a little intimidating to see all the buttons and controls, but once you use it a couple times you’ll feel like an expert!
- Take advantage of the dishwasher safe parts. You Instant Pot comes with a few parts you’ll want to get familiar with, plus some additional parts you can purchase down the road! Basically, everything but the base and lid can go straight to the dishwasher. This makes cooking AND clean up a breeze!
How long will this Pot Roast stay good?
Unfortunately, Pot Roast doesn’t have a very long shelf life. It is recommended to keep it in the fridge for only up to 4 days, in an airtight container or wrapped in foil. After that, it’s best to throw it out. But, if you plan ahead to save it for a later date, your roast can be stored in the freezer for 2-6 months. Keep in mind that the longer it’s in the freezer, the more the flavor and texture deteriorate.
