Instant pot pork roast and potatoes

Instant Pot for any time of the year. It works perfect with a big variety of dishes, from perfect summery Instant Pot infused water recipes to lovely stews and soups.

I made this dish on a busy weekday evening, when i got home with my little kids and didn’t have anything ready yet  for dinner.

I had boneless pork ribs from Costco, that i didn’t freeze yet and a bag of potatoes. Perfect ingredients for an easy weeknight instant pot kid friendly meal!

If you prefer, you can add different kind of spices in to this dish, but i went with Poppy’s seasoning.

Best potatoes to be used here are golden potatoes, but any other kind will work well too.

Do you like corn? My kids love to eat everything with corn! If you are able to add fresh one- go for it!

Canned will be delicious here too. I used frozen white sweet corn, because i had it in the freezer and i know it was flesh frozen to keep all the vitamins inside.
