Pressure Cooker Italian beef

Join the cult of the electric pressure cooker! Some trends are worth following, we assure you. Electric Pressure Cookers, most people have InstaPot, but we bucked that trend and went with a Fagor, make quick easy work of tough cuts of meat. How can you go wrong? Here's a quick Pressure Cooker Italian Beef recipe we whipped up. It's easy to remember too, as each ingredient is measured in one's. 


1 onion rough chopped
1 lb stew meat
Olive oil
1 c red wine
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 c carrots, chopped
1 T flour
1 t fennel
1 t Italian seasoning
1 t beef bouillon
Salt and pepper to taste


Sear and sauté onion and beef in your pressure cooker in some olive oil. Once it has some color, sprinkle in flour and brown a bit.  Add 1 t. fennel and brown. Deglaze bottom with red wine. Add remaining ingredients. Set to high pressure and cook for 13 minutes.

Serve over polenta, pasta, or potatoes. We're big fans of Lidia's Polenta recipe - it always turns out great. 

You can take the leftover polenta and the pressure cooker beef and make this Pan-Fried Polenta with Kale and Chickpeas, too (though we sauteed everything instead of baking the kale in the oven).
