    I added only the potatoes and carrots - turned out fantastic! Will definitely make a staple. So quick with pressure cooker!

    This was excellent. I've not cooked with a pressure cooker very much & usually borrow a friend's. Her pot was too small for this so I bought a 6-qt. I was amazed the veg. cooked in 1 minute. I thought for sure I'd be nuking some veggies but they were perfect. I bought rutabaga by mistake but very good. Gravy was a little bland though.

    Wow! This was great. I made the beef stock and followed the directions except I omitted the turnips and used only 1 tbsp. flour. It is one of the best beef stews ever and certainly worthy of company. The best part is that it gets done so fast.

    I have made this dish several times this winter. While it isn't that quick, it is easy to prepare and extremely delicious. The gravy is out of this world.

    Honestly, this was my first pot roast, ever. I'm also pretty close to a newbie with the pressure cooker (this was just my 3rd use of last year's Christmas present). The recipe was much easier, and tastier than I expected. The meat was very tender (especially for such an inexpensive cut) and I thought the gravy was full of flavor... though I can be heavy handed with black pepper and garlic. I didn't actually make the beef stock *sheepishly* - maybe next time.

    Wow. I never liked pot roast before, but this was amazing. Very flavorful. I couldn't find any turnips, but I hope to find some for next time. All of the veggies were great. Oh, and I couldn't wait to eat, so I didn't make the gravy. Next time I will be sure to do so, as I'm sure it would make it even more amazing.
