How to Store Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

To store your leftover pot roast, place it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to four days. It’s essential to store it with enough juices from the pressure cooker to maintain its moisture and juiciness. When you need to reheat your food, you have two options: you can use either an oven or a microwave.

A wonderful and completely self-sufficient dish for a full lunch. It doesn't need anything else to complement it; it is perfectly balanced in terms of nutrients (proteins, fats, and carbohydrates), and it also contains an adequate amount of fiber. A light side dish of potatoes and vegetables pairs perfectly with the meat; this combination will not overload your digestive system. I recommend consuming this dish for lunch because it might be a bit heavy for breakfast and dinner (meat takes 4 to 8 hours to digest, so it's better to refrain from any meat dishes during the morning and evening when our metabolism is not maximally active).
