Beef Stew

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

This beef stew recipe can be done in 30 minutes, it's fairly easy to make. I used a pressure cooker to speed up the process and it works like magic. If you've never used one before don't be intimidated, just make sure to read all the instructions on how to properly use the pressure cooker before you begin (it's very important!).

Recipe by Sweet Caroline's Kitchen

1-1/2 lb. cubes beef for stew
3 medium red potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 beef bouillon
4 cups water
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

1. Season meat with a good amount of salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker over medium/high heat. Add the garlic and saute until golden in color.
2. Stir in the beef and let it brown. Add potatoes, carrots and onions. Mix it well.
3. Add water and beef bouillon. Cover pan really well and cook for about 25-30 minutes. Remove lid, dissolve the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water. Add it to the pan, mix it well and let it cook until sauce thickens.
4. Adjust seasoning if necessary and serve warm.
