sear a chuck roast in a dutch oven with a few tsp of oil until browned.
add a cup of apple (or pear) cider along with some salt and pepper. lid on
the dutch oven and into a 350F oven until the beef is tender (about 3 hours). 
remove the meat from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. in the
meantime, reserve some of the cider from the dutch oven. in a large
saucepan, cook cauliflower in a little oil until the florets start to carmelize.
add the reserved cider to the cauliflower along with enough water to cover.

mash cauliflower with a fork and add cream, butter, gorgonzola, salt, and
pepper. check meat for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. serve
with the mash and some roasted red pepper.

Has anyone tried doing this in a pressure cooker, to decrease cooking time? If so, what were the results?
