Open Faced Roast Beef Sandwich RecipeCourse: Main MealCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Medium
3 pounds beef chuck roast, trimmed off excess fat
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup beef broth
1 package of brown gravy dry mix
1 small sweet onion sliced
1 cup of white mushrooms sliced (optional)
Serve with potatoes or thick sliced sandwich bread
Add a package of brown gravy mix, garlic salt and pepper to a large bowl.
Carefully place the beef roast in the dish and coat all sides with the powder mix.
In the pressure cooker set to sauté mode ( I use the Chicken cook setting) to sauté a sweet sliced onion
Slowly add 1 cup of the chicken broth and diced mushroom to the pot. Let simmer for about 3 minutes before adding the remaining broth.
Place the roast into the Power Pressure Cooker.
Cook on 'Chicken Meat' setting for 1 hour letting the steam release on its on. Do not open at the end of the cooking time.
After about 15 minutes the pressure release should be ready to open up. Remove beef and serve with gravy, mash potatoes on a slice of fresh thick sandwich bread.
I am super amazed at how well this turned out in the Electric Power Pressure Cooker. My husband says this is the best Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich he has ever had. He compared it to the HUGE portion meal he enjoys at Blue Ribbon Diner out in Swanton Ohio. Mine tastes like it has less salt mainly because I didn’t use the drippings from the bottom of the pan for the gravy.

Serving Suggestions for the Open-Faced Roast Beef Sandwich
In the recipe feature here I use an additional package of McCormick brand Brown Gravy Mix. Just follow the recipe directions to make the gravy. You can use the drippings in the bottom of the pressure cooker with flour but I like to cheat!
Another cheat is I use instant mash potatoes. It makes it easy to whip up a ‘homecooked meal’ that tastes like you spent hours working on. I always have the individual varieties of mash potato dried mixes you can find at Aldi for .89 cents. The ‘loaded potato’ variety from Walmart is super yummy with steak and this recipe too!
You would be silly to not ‘cheat’ these days when putting together an amazing meal. Using new products like the 4 serving mash potato packages makes whipping up a healthy home-cooked meal so much easier. You will also have more time to spend with the family.
