In short, fall has arrived.
Enter beef stew!
|A bowl full of fall comfort|
And the pressure cooker makes that all-day flavor quick and easy. I have the electric Cuisinart pressure cooker, and I love it.
I threw in a bunch of different root veggies, which you could change up to suit your tastes.
Pressure Cooker Beef and Root Veggie Stew
1 lb stew meat, cubed
~1 Tbsp flour
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 sweet potato
1 c chopped carrot
3 c water
2 Tbsp Better than Boullion (or use your favorite broth instead of water)
1/2 Tbsp cooking sherry
1-2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
2 Tbsp corn starch
8 oz sliced portobello mushroom
Dredge the stew meat in flour. Chop the onion. Heat oil in your pressure cooker, and brown the meat and the onion.
|That's a lot of tasty veggies!|

|After pressure cooking, before adding mushrooms|
Stir in the mushrooms (chop into smaller pieces if you prefer). Add the cornstarch to a small amount of cold water and whisk until combined. Stir into the stew and simmer for several minutes until the mushrooms are cooked and the stew has thickened.
