WHAT IS ASADO DE OLLA?
Roast pot is a large, sturdy cut of meat (usually a cheap cut perfect for slow cooking), singed, covered and cooked slowly with herbs and vegetables in a tasty broth until it melts tenderly.
A good pot roast can be made with any cut of roast meat: chuck roast, round roast or breasts. The meat is seasoned and scorched and then added to your slow cooker or instant cooker with a braised liquid; For this recipe you will use meat broth and balsamic vinegar that helps to soften the meat and add a deeper flavor.

. Chuck Roast: tender,
- Brisket: It has a lot of connective tissue so it’s a fattier cut that gets super tender while cooking slowly, but can still be sliced to serve

HOW TO ROAST IN POT IN A SLOW COOKER (CLAY POT)
Season the roast with a good amount of salt and pepper and seal on all sides until golden brown (about 5-6 minutes on each side). Transfer the roast to the bowl of a 6-quart slow cooker. Add all remaining ingredients and simmer for 8 hours. The meat will be so tender and crumbling, and the vegetables soft. Remember to taste the test and add any extra balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt or pepper, until you reach the desired flavor.
PRO TIP: It’s best to cook the pot roast on the low setting rather than the high setting when it comes to pot roasting. Your meat will be tender and delicious every time.
HOW TO ROAST IN AN INSTANT POT (ELECTRIC PRESSURE COOKER)
Heat the oil in the instant pot and put it in ‘Sauté’. When the oil is hot, seal on all sides until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes on each side). Add all remaining ingredients and cook under high pressure for 60 minutes, followed by a 15-minute natural release. Then use the quick pressure lever to release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove the lid and transfer the roast and vegetables to a hot dish.
PRO TIP: The natural release part of electric pressure cooking is an important step. We’ve found that if you release the pressure immediately after cooking, your meat can harden. Letting the pressure cooker sit for 15 minutes during the natural release stage produces a tender result.
