"I made this tonight and it was the first time I made something in my pressure cooker. I did use beer in place of the water like another reviewer suggested. It turned out very tender. Lots of flavor and you cannot beat the time."

"This is a great recipe, but I made a couple of changes; I used onion powder & fine sea salt instead of onion salt; and I used beer instead of water. Next time I make it, I will probably add a little more salt"
