Quick Beef Stew
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:
1. 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.
2. In a small bowl, combine remaining water, the flour, and browning and seasoning sauce.
3. Remove lid from pressure cooker and stir flour mixture into stew, cooking over medium heat, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.
