Beef and Wine Soup with Dumplings
How can you say the Prep Time is 5 minutes? I find that deceptive - especially if one is looking for a fast and easy meal to prepare on a worknight. How is that calculated - once everything is brought together, chopped, diced, portioned, etc? I would put the Prep Time at at least 20 to 30 minutes.

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast
I agree re the last reviewer's comments about the sodium content. This can be addressed by using a low sodium beef broth, and perhaps halving the dry dressing mixes being used, and using them in a pre-cooking dry rub marinade for the beef, as someone else suggested. Otherwise, excellent.

Zesty Pork Tenderloin
This was an excellent recipe, with the caveat of several necessary changes. The amount of pepper asked for has to be a misprint. I halved it, and upon eating, decided that it should be halved again. Also, halved the garlic. Used fresh tarragon instead of dried, in the same amount called for. We like a thicker sauce, so doubled the amount of cornstarch. Also, used low sodium tamari rather than soy, although had I not had the tamari on hand, would've used the soy, but also in a low sodium variety. Otherwise excellent, and will be added to the regular repertoire.
