Beef & Guinness Stew
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)
Suitable for: Pressure King Pro 5L 12-in-1 Pressure Cooker
Select the BROWNING function, add half the oil and allow to heat. Add the beef in batches and rotate regularly for ~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 ~2 minutes until the veg begin to soften.
Add the Worcestershire sauce, beer, beef, pickling onions, stir to combine, then press CANCEL.
Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the MEAT 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.
