Italian pot roast is a beef roast cooked in a tomato-based sauce. Here are the ingredients:

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 (3 to 4 lb.) boneless chuck roast
1 large onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup dry red wine
1 cup beef broth
2 (6-oz.) cans tomato paste
1 (15-oz.) can tomato sauce (I use my own oven-roasted tomato sauce)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. hot sauce

In my large pressure cooker I brown the beef in the oil until it's nice and brown all over. After the beef is browned, remove it to a plate and saute the onion and garlic until just tender. Put the meat back in and add the rest of the ingredients. Cover the cooker and cook under pressure gently for about 45 minutes or so. Cool pressure cooker according to manufacturer's directions and serve the beef with the sauce.

I'm going to serve it with mashed potatoes tonight, but it could just as easily be served with pasta and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

This recipe makes a LOT, so it would be good for a large family for plenty leftovers. I may freeze half of it since it's only Buck and me. Normally I would've prepared half the recipe, but today is such a yucky day I just went for it.

I went to visit my friends in Santa Barbara on Saturday and I am still here. We will probably go out to dinner but we are not sure what we are in the mood for.

I slow roasted a chuck roast this morning and I made a huge kettle of beef vegtable soup with it for dinner. It has been foggy and rainy here for 3 straight days, soup just sounded good.

It's been down in the teens in the mornings here, so darn cold the orchards have been putting water around the trees during the day,by morning you see melting lakes of ice!! So, I'm making a big pot of Cioppino, with halibut,shrimp,bay scallops,crab,clams. A green salad, lots of warm crunchy Italian bread and butter, dessert, large chocolate muffins with chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream...
