Pressure Cooker Roast Beef
Have you ever cooked in a pressure cooker? My Mom gave me a pressure cooker and while she was here visiting, we made a few things. This roast beef being one.
If you haven’t ever cooked in one, the deal is, that you cook your foods in 70% of the normal cook time. Speeds things up if you are looking for that. I’m always, ok, not always, but most of the time, looking for a way to speed up my cooking time. Gots things to do. This roast beef took 1 hour and 18 minutes to cook in the pressure cooker as opposed to 2 – 2 1/2 hours in a standard oven. Not bad. You’ll want to go a little longer if you want it to resemble a pot roast and just fall apart.
The Roast Beef turned out very tasty if I say so myself. I seared it first with onions and bacon and then threw them all in the roasting pan. I could definitely taste the onion and bacon in the roast beef. By all means, add whatever floats your boat. I baked this with the traditional carrots and potatoes and topped it off with gravy. I made some big ole biscuits to have something to slop up that gravy too.
So, have you ever cooked with a pressure cooker? What are your thoughts?
