Pot Roast and Vegetables
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 40 min. + cooling
I made this in my electric pressure cooker, and it was so easy! Beef roasts notoriously don't cook thoroughly in electric pressure cookers, so to alleviate that, I cut the roast into slabs before I browned it. It came out so tender and perfect! We loved it. This recipe does need a couple of minor tweaks, though. First, there are no seasonings in this. I added some garlic powder and some Trader Joe's 21-Seasoning Salute. Also, next time, I would use beef broth in place of the 2 cups of water and perhaps 2 tsp. of beef bouillon granules instead of one to make the gravy a bit beefier. Also, I think the gravy was a bit too thick, so I'd either add a bit more broth to it or use a bit less cornstarch. It wanted to thicken so much that it was almost like jelly if it cooled even the tiniest bit. Other than that, though, it was absolutely amazing! I'll never make pot roast any other way again. This recipe's a keeper!
