1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup teriyaki or soy sauce
1 tsp crushed dry red pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard

half of the sliced onions.  Remove roast from sauce (reserve sauce).  Put
roast on onions and cover with remaining onions.  Close pressure cooker cover
securely.  Place pressure regulator on vent pipe.  Cook at 15 pounds pressure,
with regulator rocking slowly, for the following doneness: 8 to 10 minutes per
pound for rare; 10 to 12 minutes per pound for medium; at least 12 to 15
minutes per pound for well done meat.

Cook pork 15 minutes per pound until well done.Let pressure drop of its own accord.
Meanwhile, place reserved barbecue sauce in a saucepan and simmer, until reduced by
about one half, stirring occasionally.  Remove roast and keep warm.  Discard cooking
water or use for making soup.  Puree onions in a blender r or food processor and add to
reduced barbecue sauce.  Serve sauce with sliced roast.  Makes 8 to 10

This is for cooking a chicken to use in other recipes where cooked chicken is needed, such as
chicken and dumplings, chicken and rice, casseroles, etc.

Fryer size:

Cook 20 - 25 min. on 15 lbs. pressure after pressure comes up. Cool 5 minutes, then reduce pressure by placing under cold running water.

Old Fashioned Pot Roast
(from Country Living)

Serves: 6

1 beef chuck or round roast, about 3 1/4 pounds, trimmed of excess fat
2 to 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (optional)
4 tbs. vegetable oil
Ground black pepper
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped parsnip or turnip
2 1/2 cups homemade or canned beef stock or bouillon
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1 1/2 pounds medium size red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
3 medium size parsnips, peeled and cut into 3 or 4 chunks
2 tbs. all-purpose flour mashed into 2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
Fresh thyme leaves (optional)

If desired, make 3/4-inch-deep, evenly distributed incisions in roast and push one
slice of garlic into each.

In 6 quart pressure cooker, heat 3 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add meat and
brown well on all sides lifting meat frequently with spatula to prevent sticking—about
2 to 3 minutes per side. Add  extra oil as needed. Season each browned side with salt and pepper, be conservative if you're using canned  stock or bouillon.
Remove meat to platter and set aside.

In blackened oil remaining in cooker, sauté the chopped onion, carrot, celery, and
parsnip for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, scrape any browned bits from bottom of
 cooker. Add beef stock, bay leaves, and dried thyme.

Set rack or trivet in cooker and place meat on it, broad side down, so that as much
surface as possible is covered by the liquid.

Lock lid into place, heat to high pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to just enough to maintain high pressure and cook 60 minutes. Let pressure drop naturally for 15 minutes .
Remove lid, opening it away from you, to allow any remaining steam to escape.

When pot roast is done, it should be easy to pierce with a fork. If it is not
sufficiently tender, lock lid back in place and heat to high pressure for another
5 minutes, let pressure drop naturally.

When roast is fork-tender, transfer to platter, set aside in warm place. Remove
rack from cooker. Place potatoes, whole onions, and parsnip chunks in cooker.
Lock lid into place and return to high pressure over high
heat. Reduce heat to just enough to maintain high pressure and cook 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, slice meat. Reduce pressure in cooker using quick release .
Remove lid, opening it away from you, to allow any remaining steam to escape. With
slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to platter around meat, set aside in warm place.

Over high heat, gradually whisk flour-butter mixture into liquid in cooker. Cook,
stirring constantly, until mixture thickens—3 to 4 minutes. Remove bay leaves and
season to taste. Pour gravy over meat and vegetables on platter, sprinkle with fresh
thyme, if desired, and serve immediately.
