1/5 Photos of Old-Fashioned Beef Stew
The original recipe comes from my Pressured Cook cookbook, however I've made modifications. It can be prepared in a pressure cooker, crock pot or on the stove top. The key is to use good quality beef and cook until it is 'meltingly' tender. Also don't take any shortcuts. . . follow the directions and brown the meat properly, it really does intensify the flavor. If you are planning to freeze a portion of this stew, cook only the amount of potatoes you need for immediate use, they don't freeze well. Passive work time is calculated using a pressure cooker. Additional time needed for crock pot or stove top preparation. UPDATE: Recently made in the crock-pot and instead of putting the potatoes and carrots in with the meat, I tossed them with about a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkled with thyme and wrapped in aluminum foil; placed on top of the meat in the crock-pot. About an hour before serving, stirred the veggies into the stew.
