I found this in the booklet that came with my pressure cooker 34 years ago. I've made it more times than I can count and we always love it.

How to Make Swedish Pot Roast

Step-by-Step

  1. Blend nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and pepper together and rub over entire roast.
  2. Brown the meat on all sides in the oil at medium-high heat.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients(except cornstarch)to the pot. If using a pressure cooker,cook for 35 minutes after pressure builds. If cooking on top of the stove,cover and simmer for about 4 hours until very tender.
    Remove the meat and bay leaves from the pot and thicken the gravy with some cornstarch mixed in a small amount of water.
  4. I serve this with wide noodles.
