Beef Stroganoff (Pressure Cooker)
This is fast and delicious, this is an Americanized version of Stroganoff, very much like a stew really. I made this on 30 Dec 2017 for dinner, very well liked by the family as well. This is for a stove top pressure cooker. Follow all safety precautions for your pressure cooker.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Season the beef on all sides with salt and pepper to your liking. Heat a splash of olive oil in your pressure cooker on medium heat and add the beef and cook to brown on all sides.
  2. When the beef is mostly browned, add the onion and saute until softened and starting to brown, then add the wine, mustard, and flour. Simmer until reduced a bit, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and carrot.
  3. Place the lid on the cooker (without the weight) and place to the locked position, then add the weight, and turn the heat to high.
  4. When the jiggler (the weight) starts moving, turn heat to low but maintain it hot enough to keep the jiggler moving. This is when you start timing, and for this dish, 18 minutes.
  5. My pressure cooker has a lid lock, meaning the lid cannot be opened when under pressure. The round pin in that circle in the lid is a gravity pin, when there is zero pressure in the pot, the pin is dropped and allows steam to escape while the pressure in increasing.
  6. When pressure builds inside the cooker, it forces the pin up and locks/prevents the lid from being removed, and is an indicator that vessel is pressurized at this point.
  7. At 18 minutes, turn the heat off and move the cooker to an unused burner and allow a natural release of pressure, meaning just let the pot sit and cool, takes about 10 to 15 minutes. If you have a lid lock, that will drop when the pressure is zero inside the pot.
  8. When it is safe to open the pot, remove the lid and stir in the cream cheese. Place the lid back on and lock it in place, return to high heat to bring the pot up to full pressure again, this goes much fast now since the contents are hot. When the jiggler starts to move indication full pressure, reduce the heat to low to maintain high pressure for 4 minutes.
  9. When 4 minutes have passed, turn the heat off and move the cooker to an unused burn and allow a natural release of pressure, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  10. When safe to open, remove the lid and give the stroganoff a stir.
  11. Serve with mashed potatoes, pasta, or rice.
