DH raved about this robust recipe and can't wait to have it again! I would give this 5 stars had you included pressure cooker directions; I consulted Pot Roast With Garlic-Smashed Potatoes - 8-Qt Pressure Cooker because I used a 6-quart Cook's Essentials electric pressure cooker. For pressure cooking, I chopped both the onion and the carrot, and I added a can of condensed French Onion soup (because I was out of beef broth) to ensure adequate liquid. My chuck roast was 2.7 pounds, but I did not scale back the rest of the recipe. I ended up with a lot of wonderful gravy. The meat was perfect! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
This was a deliciously different way to prepare pot roast. The end result was not overly Asian in its taste, but the ginger and five spice added a new depth to to both the roast and the gravy. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
