This applies to stew beef, not a large piece of beef like a pot roast. A few days ago I was going to make some ground beef patties with a gravy sauce, and my new and to my discovery, less than desirable meat grinder failed at simply grinding beef. Since I had the meat cut to stew size to feed into the grinder. Backup plan, use my stove top pressure cooker. I looked up the time for stew beef, 20 minutes, easy, and quite delicious beef that is tender and juicy. Win win 🙂 Follow your pressure cooker's safety instructions.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 kilos beef see Step 1, (3 lbs)
  • water as needed
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. The amount of beef (stew beef, beef that is cut into pieces) is not really important, I used 1 1/2 kilos but I also have a 9 liter (9 1/2 quart) pressure cooker. Main thing is the pressure cooker (for smaller pressure cookers) is no more than 2/3 full.
  2. Add the beef to the cooker. Add about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water, again, do not go over 2/3 full. You need water in the cooker, you are not going to boil the meat, as when it is under pressure, the water does not boil, it is certainly ok if there is meat above the water!
  3. Place the lid on and lock, bring to high heat. When the jiggler starts moving and releasing pressure, turn the heat down but maintain the pressure release and jiggler moving (indicating full pressure). Start timing for 20 minutes.
  4. When 20 minutes have passed on full pressure, turn of the heat and move the pressure cooker to an unused burner to allow a natural release of pressure.
  5. When the pressure is released and it is safe to open your pressure cooker, go ahead and open, use beef as needed in other recipes. Don't forget to try a piece first 😉
  6. I simply added the stew beef to a sauce pan of beef gravy and served it with homemade spatzle, excellent dish.
  7. Recipes to use stew beef in could be simply beef and gravy, beef and noodles, etc.
Recipe Notes

For pricing, this depends on how much beef you are using and where you sourced it from. I will just use a blanket Fair cost for this.

Variant: 1. Increase the time to 21 or 22 minutes for an even more fall apart tender beef.
