OMG! This was SOOOOOO good. You could almost eat the gravy with a spoon, the roast was tender and flavorful, and for a roast, it cooked fairly quickly. My changes: I omitted the onion soup mix and turnips altogether because I didn't have either of them on hand. I added some onion powder though to kind of substitute for the lack of onion soup mix. I also threw in a rib or two of celery with the roast for extra flavor. We're definitely going to be adding this to the monthly rotation. :-)

I stumbled on this looking for a simple roast recipe to christen my new pressure cooker. This went beyond my expectations flavor wise and is very easy to make. I did cut the onion soup mix by half to lower the sodium content, put fresh garlic and used reserved vegetable broth to cook the beef and vegetables. I will definitely make again, possibly using home made cream of mushroom with shiitake :)

This is a great recipe. My family loved it and the vegetables were wonderful. I would have never thaught to add the soup but it worked great. I did not change the recipe at all. Next time I will add more seasoning to the roat. I was afraid to add to much using the soup mix.

Excellent pot roast. I have made it several times now because pot roast is my Daddy's favorite dish. From time to time I have left out this veggie and thrown in that, but never omit the turnips! I love the whit and humor in the directions as well. Thanks for a keeper.

Raised my family using pressure cooker. Now, after 20 years, resuming pressure cooking again. This recipe was extremely tasty, especially the turnips. First time in my 66 years I've eaten turnips! We all decided they're better than rutabagas, at least in this recipe. In addition to celery, I also added red and yellow pepper chunks. Vegetables were yummy, and the aujou excellent. Will definitely make again. A real winner. Thanks for sharing.

This is an awesome pot roast. My compliments to Daddy! It was incredibly easy to make. The family just loved it! My ten year old even got seconds! The only variations were that I used cream of musroom soup and I didn't have the turnips, but next time I'll follow the recipe to the tee.
