Have you ever purchased a roast only to find out that it’s tough as nails when you’ve cooked it? If you have an Instant Pot® and a desire for flavorful, tender meat, then this is the recipe you’ll want to try out!
My husband and I stock up on roasts when we find them on sale. I’m not sure if we’d cooked them fresh if that would have made a difference; but we even tried one in the slow cooker that was still too tough to shred. With the Instant Pot®, we’ve never had a bit of trouble creating melt-in-your-mouth meat dishes!
If you’ve never heard of adding unsweetened cocoa to your meat dishes (such as chili or roasts), then I’m excited to tell you that you’ll never fix these dishes without it again! The cocoa adds an entirely new dimension of flavor. It’s rich, flavorful, and YUM! You’ll be thinking, “Why didn’t I try this before?!“
