Pressure Cooker Pot Roast
It was another cold day, and I made a pot roast. With toddlers running amuck (or amok), I decided to use my pressure cooker that Hubs gave me couple of years ago. I love my Russell Hobbs pressure cooker. It's so convenient to have a pot roast dinner done in under an hour. I browned the boneless chuck roast in the cooker, added broth, Lipton's onion mix, and cooked it for 30mins. While that is going, I chopped up some celery, onions, carrots, mushrooms and turnips (more flavor than potatoes) and minced garlic. These veggies and seasonings were added to the pot roast after the safety button is released, and cooked for another 15mins. The result was quick, moist, tender pot roast which I served with brown rice and a green salad.
