Beef Stew with Orange and Rosemary

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by TishT

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.
