Pressure Cooker Golden Mushroom Beef Stew

"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!"

Ready In:




  • 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
  • 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)
  • Lock the pressure cooker lid in place and bring to high pressure over high heat.
  • Cook 15 minutes.
  • Cool pot immediately and serve.
  • 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.

    What size are the beef pieces? It makes a difference with a pressure cooker's timing.

    Can this be made in a crock pot?

    Exactly how much water do I need to add? The difference between 10 and 20 ounces can affect the consistency greatly.

    This was awesome!! I wanted to make something that I could enjoy now, and freeze some for later and this was a great recipe. Very tasty. I did have to thicken it up with cornstarch at the end, but it was great (I like my stew very thick!) Try this you will be very pleased!

    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...

    This was SOOO good. I am learning more every day about my pressure cooker. I followed the recipe, adding a splash of red wine and some garlic cloves. My husband raved about it, Used the little potatoes and thickened the gravy at the end, also adding some peas. Wonderful!!!

    So, So good!!! I found my pressure cooker while cleaning out the garage and made this recipe. Now I will be using it regularly if I find recipes as good as this one. Thanks, FoggyBlonde!!!

    Great recipe - but - I made just a couple of changes. I used Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom soup - has no MSG (I'm highly allergic to that) and Better than Bouillon Beef Base (also has no MSG) instead of the bouillon cube. The other thing I did was I did a natural release on my pressure cooker for 10 minutes prior to opening the lid. Have used a pressure cooker for over 40 years, but I still do the natural release. I find it's safer than having to clean the food off of the ceiling and floor. LOL!!
