The downside of having two households, especially if they’re far apart, is that you need almost two of everything. We have a very nice electric pressure cooker in our Alaska household. When we wanted to make a nice pressure cooker pot roast at our Florida household we found that we needed to go out and get another pressure cooker. A little window shopping on the Internet and we soon found a very nice sized pressure cooker for reasonable price. We now had two of everything.
When used properly the modern pressure cooker is a safe and efficient means of cooking your food. Be sure to read your instruction manual thoroughly so that you can use your pressure cooker in a safe and prescribed manner. This recipe fills an 8-quart cooker almost to the fill line.
The very nice feature of the pressure cooker is that you can use less-expensive cuts of meat to make delicious and savory meals. Cuts of meat like seven bone roasts are an excellent choice for this kind of meal. However, after searching through three supermarkets, we could not find a seven bone roast. It is just one of those things that we frequently find that what you want is not immediately available. We still had a desire to have a pot roast so we selected an alternative cut of meat. In this case it was a London broil which is nothing more than a very thick cut of round steak.
The London broil cut of meat has less connective tissue and fat than the preferred cut, the seven bone roast. As a result, it contributes less mouth feel and flavor to the dish. You may wish to substitute beef broth for the water in this recipe and perhaps add a bit of beef bouillon for increased flavor.
