Beef & Guinness Stew (PKP 4.8L & 5.7L)
Making a beef stew this tender would take hours in a slow cooker. The PKP makes this hearty warming stew in just 30 minutes.
Best served with crusty bread or creamy mash, with some extra veggies on the side.
2 tbsp olive or cooking oil
500g diced beef
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery stick, chopped
8 pickling onions or small shallots (skin left on)
2 tsp fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried thyme)
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
400ml Guinness (or any beer of your choice)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Select the SAUTE function, add half the oil and allow to heat. Add the beef in batches and rotate regularly for about 3 minutes until browned, then set aside.
Add the remaining oil along with the onion, garlic, celery, carrot, thyme and bay leaf and stir regularly for about 2 minutes until the veg begins to soften.
Add the Worcestershire sauce, beer, beef, and pickling onions. Stir thoroughly to combine, then press CANCEL.
Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the STEW/SOUP function and adjust the time to 25 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.
Serve with crusty bread, mash or some extra veggies on the side.
