Kelly's Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

Recipe by  

"My mother used to make beef stew in a pressure cooker at least once a week. I crave it all the time and have doctored up the flavor so it's no longer just 'meat and potatoes' tasting."

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place flour in a resealable bag; drop in half the beef cubes and shake to coat. Shake off excess flour and add meat to pan. Repeat with remaining beef. Season meat with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Stir onion into beef and cook, stirring often, until the meat is browned on all sides and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in sugar.
  3. Combine water, beef bouillon, garlic, bay leaf, parsley, and basil in a pressure cooker over medium-high heat. When bouillon cubes are dissolved, fit the pressure cooker's rack in the cooker (if it has one). Layer potatoes, carrots, and meat mixture in the pressure cooker, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Seal the lid and bring the cooker up to full pressure.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, maintaining full pressure, and cook for 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Let the pressure drop naturally, about 15 minutes before releasing lid. Transfer the meat and vegetables to a serving bowl and pour pan juices over meat and vegetables.

Easy, fast and tasty!

Just made this tonight and was fabulous. A few changes like most cooks - omitted the sugar, added 3 stalks of celery, cut in 2 inch segments and didn't coat the meat with flour. Because I had almost double the meat, I browned the beef in divided batches, then added everything else. My 6 qt pot was pretty full so had to remove some liquid to leave the required 1/3 space at the top. ( Very important!) Also thickened mine with cornstarch. All minor changes. Very nice beef stew recipe that went from conception to table in 1 hour! Love it!
