4 Minute Beef

It doesn’t get much simpler than this – roast beef in four minutes! Perfect for your Sunday roast or thinly sliced as canapes with plenty of horseradish sauce.

Cooking for 4 minutes will cook your joint rare, add on a few minutes if you prefer your beef a bit more well done.


2 tbsp olive or cooking oil

300ml stock

2 onions, thickly sliced

~1Kg beef joint

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Suitable for: Pressure King Pro 5L

The Method

Take the beef out of the fridge and allow to rest for ~30 minutes to come up to room temperature.

Select the BROWNING function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the beef and rotate occasionally for ~6 minutes to seal the joint on all sides.

Press CANCEL then remove the beef and set to one side.

Add the sliced onions to the bottom of the inner pot, place the beef on top, then pour in the stock.

Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the MEAT function and adjust the time to 4 minutes.

When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the SLOW RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid.

Leave to rest for ~10 minutes before carving and serving.
