Kevin’s InstantPot Pot Roast/ Stroganoff/ Stew-Thing-Dinner

By Kevin Pettway / October 26, 2018 /

You can go a couple of different directions with this recipe, depending on how long you simmer it for at the end. The longer the simmer, the saucier and less soupy it will be. It’s a matter of preference though. It’s pretty wonderful either way.
