This was really great! Even the kids liked it! I served it with the sauce over rice. *zesty* people may want to add a couple teaspoons of Italian seasonings.

Came out great! I used a 3 pound chuck roast ( and 1/2 of everythibg else) - and I cooked under pressure for about an hour -- longer than the recipe says--for really soft meat. Thanks for the great recipe.

This was so fast and easy. I cut this down for 2 people. I used a eye of round roast instead. I added potatoes as I wanted to thicken the juices for gravy. I ended up using about 3 Tbs. of tomato paste. I learned how to use a pressure cooker about 6 months ago and been loving it ever since.
