    Mustard — dry or prepared? I’m guessing dry because it’s listed amongst other dry ingredients.

    What type of beer do you recommend using? I do not drink beer so I do not know m. Should I use a dark one or light? My hubby likes IPA- is that a good one? Anyone know of a guide to using different beer for different foods? That would be helpful

    Pure comfort food. So good on a cold, wet (typical) Pacific NW day. And so quick in the pressure cooker. I made 2 changes. I added some whole mushrooms with the onion and carrots, and didn't use the flour until after the cooking, and then mixed it with some water and thickened the juices while meat rested on platter. Served with mashed potatoes. This one is a keeper!

    This recipe was awesome. I did do an elk roast instead of beef and it was great, other than that I followed the recipe to a T! Thank you

    I rarely review recipes but this is really stellar roast! I chose this as my first recipe to cook in my new pressure cooker. The flavor was delicious, not your run of the mill roast with brown gravy, but not too out there in flavor profile either. Classic comfort food. The recipe had just the right hint of tomato in the sauce, the mustard wasn't too strong, and it cooked to tender perfection in an hour.<br/><br/>I used Guinness as the beer, and I only used one tbsp of olive oil as my roast was a bit fatty. I also added more salt in the end to suit my taste. Thank you very much for the wonderful recipe!

Hello fellow cooks-I am on OBGYN doctor and I am new to this website. . I love RecipeZaar since there are so many, easy, delicious, tested recipes. Between myself and my boyfriend, we have 5 children so there is always someone hungry-the family is so happy about the new, freshly cooked foods that have been gracing our table as of late. Gardening- here in south florida we have lots of tropical fruit trees - is another hobby that I enjoy. We love scuba diving too. Recently, I did a tandem parachute jump.
