A different sort of roast. Slightly sweet with an unusual blend of spices. This was one of my son's favorite meals when he was young.

- 2 onions, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, diced
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup red wine (or cider vinegar)
- 1 cup water
- 4 bay leaves
- Combine nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and pepper; rub into meat.
- Heat pressure cooker, add olive oil and brown meat well on all sides.

- cover securely.
- Place pressure regulator on vent pipe and cook 35 minutes with pressure regulator rocking slowly.

Delicious! What a wonderful mix of flavors. I added potatoes and carrots an hour before it was done. My husband loved it but even more surprisingly, my non-meat loving kid ate her plate clean! Thanks. This will be going in my family faves.
Beautiful! The flavours permeated the meat so well - I can't remember enjoying beef as much as tonight! Thank you for a superb recipe!
I was a little wary of the spices used in this because I've never had them with beef. But wow! This was reaaly good. The next time I make it, I'll have to triple the recipe and freeze the leftovers. This one is a keeper! Thanx for sharing!
