Defrost roast in microwave following microwave manufacturer's instructions 30-40 minutes. Take a moment to relax and put your feet up until the microwave beeps.
Get out that pressure cooker or canner, brown roast in a little oil and garlic powder to taste.
Throw in 2 packets of gravy mix - it doesn't matter what kind. We have used country, brown, chicken, mushroom - it all turns out great. Mix and match. Add water per the package instructions plus one extra cup.
Put on the lid and bring cooker up to 15 lb. pressure and cook about 35-45 minutes (depending on size of roast.) You can also throw in whatever vegetables you would like. I usually just cook them separately in the microwave at the end.
When it's done, grab your lunch leftovers quick because there won't be any. You will have enough gravy for potatoes.
My whole family loves this! The best part is that you don't need to use the expensive roasts. I have used anything and everything from "special trimmings" (flank pieces) to chuck roast. It all turns out moist and tender.
Learn how to use a pressure cooker, they are easy and safe when you follow the instructions. Everyone have heard the horror stories but for the last several decades the cookers have built-in safety valves to keep them from "exploding". I purchased both of mine (one new and unused!) at yard sales. We make chili, stew and the family favorite - Pot Roast.

I love this because you can use the cheapest cut of beef, and it will become tender and delicious without much effort. It makes an absolutely delicious gravy, which I think is almost better than the roast!
I love a good pot roast, and sometimes I like mashed potatoes with it. I decided to see if I could cook whole potatoes with the roast in the crock-pot to flavor the potatoes before mashing them. It came out delicious.
Best pot roast I've ever made! Sear the roast in frying pan with small amount of oil. Sear it well on all sides. Put roast, then vegetables in crock pot. Mix envelope mixes with water and applesauce, then pour over all.
A wonderful, complete meal in one pan. You end up with tender roast beef, bowls full of roasted vegetables flavored with the beef juices, and a delicious pan gravy.
Place the roast in a pan which has a tight cover. Sprinkle the garlic powder over roast. Spread with soup. Next, sprinkle the dry onion soup mix over the top and pour the Coke or Pepsi over all.
It is ten minutes to put in the pot, 3 ingredients and so good. Cut some slits in roast and insert garlic slivers. Place beef in crockpot. Dump peppers and all of the juice on top. Crock all day on low.

This makes a great roast with some kick to it! I like the bit of spice in this.
Place roast in slow cooker, top with green chilies, a can of Mexican-style tomatoes, and stir in garlic powder. Cook on low 10-12 hours. Shred with 2 forks. Meat should be very tender when cooked this long. Salt as desired.
Instead of beef bouillon cubes - TRY this. It's in a jar and called Better Than Bouillon - Beef Base - put a little bit - you can always add more!

Mix flour and water. Add to saucepan. Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens. Slice roast, cover with gravy and serve with vegetables.
