Pressure Cooker Pork Roast


  • 3 pounds pork roast
  • your favorite pork rub (I use Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub)
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 2 pounds yellow potatoes cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup water
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Add oil to a hot pan on the stove and brown all sides of your pork roast.
  • Season the roast with the pork rub.
  • Add the meat to the pressure cooker with 1 cup of water. Allow the roast to cook on high pressure for about 45 minutes.
  • After 45 minutes, perform a quick release of the pressure then carefully open the lid. Toss in the carrots and potatoes. I usually toss some rub over my vegetables for extra flavor. Cook on high pressure for another 15 minutes.
    Adding the vegetables to the cooker
  • Perform another quick release and temp the roast to at least 145 degrees. Enjoy!
