Recipe by Tish
Good served with crusty bread and a salad on a cold night. It's a pressure cooker recipe, but it's easy to adapt to conventional cooking

I was prepared not to like this since I am not a big fan of oranges. However, in the finished stew the orange flavor was subtle and the rosemary more pronounced. Very nice stew and the aroma while cooking is ridiculously intriguing.

- 1 1⁄2 lbs lean stewing beef, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
