Quick Beef Stew

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

You'll have no beef with this one, 'cause all the pressure's in the pot (and not on you)! Try it for a fast, hearty helping of down-home good flavor!

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 25 min

What You'll Need:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast or steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into quarters
  • 6 carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 1 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon browning and seasoning sauce
  • What To Do:

  • In a 6-quart pressure cooker, heat oil over high heat. Add beef, salt, and pepper, and brown, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pressure cooker from heat. Add potatoes, carrots, onions, broth, and 1 cup water. Lock lid in place and bring to full pressure over high heat. When pressure regulator begins to rock, reduce heat to medium and cook 8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow pressure to drop slowly until steam no longer escapes from vent pipe and pressure is completely reduced.
     
  • In a small bowl, combine remaining water, the flour, and browning and seasoning sauce.

  • Remove lid from pressure cooker and stir flour mixture into stew, cooking over medium heat, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.
