I’ve been making a version of this Balsamic Pork Roast in my slow cooker for several years and this sweet balsamic sauce has always been a family favorite.

As I’ve been experimenting with my Instant Pot a bit more lately, I’ve found that my kids are much bigger fans of pressure cooking that crockpot meals. I think it all comes down to texture – meat and vegetables cooked in the instant pot are “melt in your mouth” but not “fall apart mushy”.
