I had a sudden craving for beef stew and found you pressure cooker recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand but left out the brown sugar and used less potato and more onion and carrots. I loved the bit of mustard flavor. The balsamic vinegar and tomato paste added just the right amount of sweetness to balance the canned tomato and beef flavors. I'm slow and it took 30 mins. prep time but then it only takes 12 mins. to cook! Thank you MizzNezz for another wonderful recipe.

This was my second dinner from my pressure cooker and it was SOOOO goooddd!!!! Easy and quick and all in one pot. I was starving after work and this took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and it was delicious! Definitely will make again! Hubby likes it a lot too!!! This would go great on a bed of rice. If you don't like it too sweet next time just back off on the brown sugar a bit. I liked it just the way it was written. Thank you!!!

I doubled the recipe, but cut back on the amount of potatoes so it would all fit in my electric pressure cooker. Fantastic!!!!! Hubby was amazed. The sauce/broth came out thick, brown and delicious.
I used 1 inch thick sirloin tip steaks, tenderized first with a Jaccard Tenderizer, then cut into 1 inch cubes. I left made the veggie pieces bite size instead of a small chop, and they were cooked to perfection.
Really, the wow of this dish is the many layers of flavor that come out of one pot. Don't skip the balsamic and the tomatoes...it's divine with this, far better than beef stews I have made without it.

I thought it was very easy to make. I have an electric pressure cooker from qvc and I use the time that my cooker recommends which came out good. first time using balsamic vinegar; it was a unusal taste tangy but good. I also scale the recipe to make leftovers. great and quick comfort food. do you have any other recipes for a electric pressure cooker I greatly apreciated it.

Very Tasty, but meat was still tough. Just bought the pressure cooker and it's electric so just press the casserole button, was watery still after 35 mins so pressed the meat button to cook for another 15 mins. Thickened up but meat was still tough. Maybe just me getting used to cooker?
