  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • Sliced French bread


  • 1. Place roast on a rack in a pressure cooker; sprinkle with oregano, rosemary, seasoned salt and pepper. Add broth, bay leaf and garlic. Close cover securely; place pressure regulator on vent pipe.
  • 2. Bring cooker to full pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 1 hour. (Pressure regulator should maintain a slow steady rocking motion; adjust heat if needed.)

"I made this last week. I prepared it exactly by the recipe. Turned out great, super tender. You do end up with alot of dipping broth, enough that you could use it in another recipe it is loaded with flavor. The sauce is also great to use when you reheat the chuck roast. After the broth cools in the refrigerator, just skim off the fat and all you are left with is pure culinary moonshine"

"I made this in a slow cooker today, used a bottom round roast. Worked great! The herby flavors shine through. Served it on rolls that I spread with garlic butter and broiled, then piled with shredded beef and smoked gouda cheese. SO good!"
