This Pork Roast is a great dish for the entire family to enjoy and perfect for any Holiday gathering.




1. Turn Instant Pot ON and set to SAUTE function +10 minutes. Add butter to the bottom of the pot and let heat for 1 minute. Sear roast on both sides until caramelized and browned.

2. Add broth, apple cider vinegar, garlic, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Turn Instant Pot OFF, then back ON, set to MANUAL +60 minutes. Return lid and close valve.

3. When timer goes off, release pressure manually and remove lid. Add baby carrots, radishes, and celery. Replace lid, close valve, and set to MANUAL +25 minutes. When timer goes off, release pressure manually. Roast should be fork tender. If it is not, add an additional 10-20 minutes cooking (MANUAL setting). Adjust seasoning (salt/pepper) to taste if needed.


If you don’t own an Instant Pot, you can use a slow cooker. Just saute the roast in a pan then add the roast to the slow cooker along with the remainder of the ingredients on a low temperature for 8 hours.
