"A pressure cooker is a must for making a tough roast tender. In our large family when I was growing up, this was everyone's most-requested birthday dinner. When my mother was reducing her household size for a move, she gave me her pressure cooker, and I am now teaching my children to make this favorite as well." — jenonymous

i made this two nights ago and my husband loved He said it tasted like his grandma's!! I changed the recipe a little by adding baby carrots and a little less onion. The meat really was fork tender and the flavor was so good. This recipe is a keeper.
I made this in an electric pressure cooker and followed the directions exactly, using a 3.5 lb butt roast. It turned out perfectly! This is my new go-to recipe for this type of roast. It's a family favorite.
This was fantastic! The pressure cooker method was easy and the drippings made the most wonderful gravy. I was nervous to try a recipe that nobody had rated yet, but really glad I did. My husband and I couldn't eat it fast enough, so delicious!
This was a really good recipe. I made it exactly as written except I used the Onion Soup Recipe from this site by Mammakittyto3. This was also very good. I really liked this because the meat became tender without drying out. Thanks so much for posting this recipe
My 3 lb rump roast was slightly frozen so it took long time to get pressure so I over cooked it some but it was very yummy. The carrots which are my favorite were amazingly good. I did add 1 packet of brown gravy mix (dissolved in water)when I added veggies and omitted the flour gravy step. My husband loved it. Meat was from local farm.
I know this is a weird review to post, but I remade this recipe with turkey instead of chuck roast because it's leaner. I browned and pressure cooked it, but only for 30 minutes since it's a smaller cut of meat. It turned out incredible. I made mashed potatoes instead of roasted, but next time I will put the potatoes in with the turkey. Thank you for the inspiration to try the pressure cooker with turkey - delicious!
I acquired a good pressure cooker from a thrift shop and it is better than the one I bought new.
This recipe did two things. I got great instructions to use the pressure cooker and it is a great recipe. It was very delicious. Everyone loved it. The meat was so tender and infused with the Onion soup flavour. I found a new Lipton Herb and Garlic soup and I plan to try it this way. Ya gotta love Lipton. Bon Appetit.
The meat was gorgeous. I liked 3/4 tsp of red pepper flakes and smokey paprika added. Great basic recipe to play with. :)
