Pressure Cooker Golden Mushroom Beef Stew

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a recipe I adapted from how I make stew in a crock pot/slow cooker. The golden mushroom soup (I use Campbell's brand) makes a great gravy and you don't have to do anything to it. When I make it in the crock pot I don't even add water, I just use 2 cans of soup. The juice from the meat is enough liquid to make a great gravy. My family loves the taste and it is so easy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in bottom of pressure cooker until hot and add the meat all at once (do not turn for at least 1 minute - you really want to let the meat sear
  2. Stir the meat, letting it brown on all sides. Next, add the onions, carrots, mushrooms, potatoes, salt, pepper, parsley, golden mushroom soup, water and optional beef bouillon(the bouillon gives a stronger flavor)
  3. Lock the pressure cooker lid in place and bring to high pressure over high heat.
  4. Cook 15 minutes.
  5. Cool pot immediately and serve.
  6. If the gravy isn't thick enough then stir a bit of cornstarch to some cold water (only about 1 T to half a cup of water) and add to the gravy. Bring to a boil and the gravy will thicken.

Just made this really great stew for family and was great! I hadn't used my pressure cooker in a couple of years and was looking forward to trying again. So simple (not scary). I did change a couple of things, though: I didn't use as many carrots:only used 3 for 5 people (cooked carrots have a stronger flavor, and tends to overpower things to me), and added more mushrooms because I love them. I used low salt beef broth for the water and the bouillion. I think I will try wine next time for a surprise... Again, a really great meal with salad, fresh rolls and ambrosia salad for dessert...

I loved this recipe! I thought it sounded a bit too simple to be amazing but it turned out delicious. It was my first attempt at pressure cooking and what a success. I substituted canned soup for powdered soup with 1 litre of water mixed and came out great. Thanks for the recipe.
