- 1/2 to 1 lb stew beef cut into chunks (decide how much or how little meat you want)
- 1 small yellow onion chopped
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 3 cups beef broth(unsalted or low salt preferred)
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper, coarse ground
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 fresh thyme sprig (replace with dried if necessary)
- 1 T tomato paste
- 1 T Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup uncooked pearl barley
Add after pressure cooking is complete:
- 1 cup sour cream (allow to stand at room temperature 15 minutes before adding.)
- 1 T chopped parsley, chopped (optional)
Place all above ingredients into pressure cooker. Alternatively, if you are not short on time, brown the beef in oil or butter together with the chopped onion before commencing pressure cooking.
Bring pot to pressure and let cook for 25 minutes on meat setting. Let pressure drop of it’s own accord. Remove bay leaf and thyme spring. Taste and adjust salt and pepper accordingly. Add 3/4 cup of sour cream and mix well.
Use remaining sour cream to add a dollop on top before serving.

This is a simple route to a wonderful rich dish, but much healthier with a fraction of the time and energy use. I love Julia Child, but I also love making recipes that taste complex in the middle of the week. Now I can!
The recipe is based on a complicated dish, but is simplified to a weekday dinner because of the use of the pressure cooker. Normally a Beef Bourguinon takes all day and is comprised of about 50 steps. It’s so intimidating that most people will never try to make it. I’m a HUGE pressure cooker fan and have converted many of my friends. The idea of making a rich stock in 45 minutes or an all day beef stew in a 1/2 hour and still get tender juicy chunks of meat seems almost magical to me.

- 2/3 cup beef stock

- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup water
- Dry beef and saute in portions to give them room in the pressure cooker to brown until all done and set aside.
- Brown pearl onions
- Add back ALL ingredients (except flour and water) and set cooker on high for 12 with natural release Once complete mix water and flour in a cup and pour in. Let cook until thickened plus one minute.

- 5 lbs oxtails
- Salt and pepper
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 3 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
- 1 small bunch parsley, chopped
- 2 cups red wine
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 cup water
- Salt and pepper
- Sugar to taste
Season the oxtails with salt and pepper then put in the cooker Put the rest of the ingredients on top of oxtails, then pour the wine and water over everything.
Cook at stew setting for 40min. Let cool in cooker for at least 10min before opening the lid.
Season with salt, pepper to taste.
For 6-8 Servings:
1 pound rack of lamb
1 pound of baby potatoes
1 large onion
2 stalks of celery
2 medium size tomatoes
2 cups of chicken stock
3-4 large cloves of garlic
1-2 teaspoons of salt depending on the salt content of the chicken stock
2 teaspoon of cumin powder
2 teaspoon of Paprika
A pinch of dried rosemary
A pinch of dried oregano leaves
2 table spoons of ketchup
3 table spoons of sherry or red wine
A splash of beer if you have one in hand
Wash all vegetables, and cut potatoes and carrots into 1 inch cubes. Dice the tomatoes, onion and garlic. Cut the rack of lamb to two halves. Put everything, I mean everything, in the cooking pot and mix well. Put the cooking pot in the Instant Pot base. Close the lid to Close position as you see flashes of “- – -“ on the LED display panel. Press the Stew/Meat button, and 35 (minutes cooking time) is shown on the LED. After about 10 seconds, you hear a beep and the LED display shows the running circle indicating the cooking process has started.
All you need to do from this point is to have a drink of your beer, sit back and relax, until you hear 3 beeps indicating the food is cooked. Wait for a few minutes until the Instant Pot cools down and you can safely or comfortably release the remaining pressure by turning the pressure release handle to the “Vent” position. Need to wait for a little longer if there is still jets of steam coming out when you try to turn the pressure release to the “Vent” position. You may open the lid once there is no pressure inside. Serve over rice or multigrain rice.
