The basic idea of this recipe is very good but I needed to modify it quite a bit. The recipe calls for garlic but does not say when to put it in. (I chose to saute it with the leeks and onions the last 3 minutes of cooking them.) The recipe also does not say how much pressure to cook the roast on. (I chose 15lbs of pressure.) I did not have a pressure cooker that had a pan to put the roast in while cooking. (Do they make these?) I put the roast directly into the sauce and cooked it for 35 minutes with good results. The rub is wonderful and I may use the rub in a separate recipe on it owns next time. This is a good basic recipe but have tested better ones.

Delicious Pork Roast. I added 1/2 cup dry white wine, and used low sodium chicken broth; pressure cooked for 25 min. When the pork was done, I added potatoes, carrots, and celery and pressure cooked 20 min. for the rest of the total 45 min cooking time suggested. Next time i will cut the paprika down just a little.

I haven't used my pressure cooker in a long time and thought this would be a great recipe to try. My pressure cooker does not have a feature on it to allow me to choose the pressure, however, the end result was a wonderful flavored roast! I used the onion soup mix instead of minced onion. This is a great recipe and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much for sharing (and giving me a reason to bring my old pressure cooker out of moth balls).

My husband is not really a pork lover but he was nuts over this recipe. Made it yesterday and he's still raving about it this morning. The only change I made was used 3 cups chicken broth and 1 cup water and I thickened the gravy with cornstarch at the end. Served it with hearty extra wide noodles. Will definately make it again.

Simply delicious! The pork (cooked per recipe) was so tender and moist! I think it may be the best thing I have made in my pressure cooker with pork! Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious recipe! I substituted one cup of Chardonnay wine (white) for one of the cups of water. That really helped! I added carrots on the bottom of the cooker with the roast on top. I will definitely fix this again! A big hit with the family.

we loved this i also added carrots and potatoes. only had 1/2 an envelop soup mix, so in that went, along with 1 reg onion. had 1 1/2 lb tenderloin, it was a bit salty for that amount of meat and the veggies. but have plans on adding quite a few more carrots and potatoes next time, as they cooked wonderfully in it, so no worries there. i also cooked it for 20 min, then added veggies for the rest of the time (tho i had thrown a few in at the beginning, so they would break down for creaminess). thanks for a keeper!

Awesome pork roast! I've made this several times already. The last time, I increased the time by 15 minutes and used onions because I forgot to get leeks. I shredded the pork for burritos. We had enough left over to make pork stew the next night. It was delicious for both meals!

Made this for a party-eight people ate most of an eight lb roast. made the folling change:used a combo leeks and sweet white onions, used progresso french onion soup, and Amber Bock beer. It was wonderful! The little leftover a friend took home.
