This was a huge hit in our house and its so easy to make. I love using the pressure cooker and these days use it in place of the crock pot as my husband does not like anything made in a crock pot. Prep time for this recipe took about 5 minutes. The actual cooking time was one hour without me needing to be standing next to it. Everyone in the house loved the beef. As you can see in my picture I made open faced sandwiches but you could use the beef in hamburger buns or whatever you would like. I used homemade bbq that I have in the fridge but you can use bottled bbq sauce.
4-5 lb chuck roast or a cheap roast
1 onion, sliced
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper
Heat oil in pressure cooker. Season roast with salt and pepper. Place roast in the heated oil and brown on one side for about 2 minutes. Flip and brown the other side. Add onions and water. Close the lid on the pressure cooker. Bring to pressure, about 5 minutes, over medium high heat. Maintain pressure and cook 45-60 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes before opening. Remove beef and drain liquid. Shred beef and add the cooked onions, if desired, and add about 1 cup bbq sauce, more or less as your taste desires.
