I'm obsessed with my pressure cooker. This is the third day I've cooked a savory main dish with a cook time of 15 to 25 minutes. Sunday, it was chili. Monday, it was Thai chicken (I'll post on that later). Last night was beef stew. I adapted this recipe from food.com. It's fun to find a recipe and modify it for Paleo. I've put an asterisk * next to my modifications.
The savory beef stew was delicious, filling, and the stew beef was fall-apart-on-your-fork tender.
1 tablespoon olive oil *
1 1/2 lbs stew beef *
3 garlic cloves, chopped *
1 large onion, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
4 ribs celery, peeled and cut into chunks
3 large turnips, peeled and cut into chunks *
Sea salt * and pepper
3 tablespoons fresh parsley *
1 can organic diced tomatoes *
1/2 cup beef broth *
1/2 cup red wine *
Cut beef into 1 inch chunks. Heat oil in bottom of pressure cooker until hot and add meat - brown for about 5 minutes, stirring.
Add chopped garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add onions, carrots, celery, turnips, salt, pepper, parsley, beef broth, and wine.
Bring to pressure over high heat.
Cook 15 minutes.
Let pot cool on its own, and serve.
