DIRECTIONS

  • I browned the meat with oil and onions in my PC, you can use a separate pan for browning if you prefer.
  • Add the mushrooms and garlic, and let cook until the mushrooms release their liquid.
  • Add the tomato sauce, wine, bay leaf and all seasonings EXCEPT salt.
  • Add a bit of water, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 cups (to bring ingredient level to just over 1/3 capacity of my PC).
  • Secure lid, bring to HIGH pressure and cook for 18-20 minutes.
  • Let pressure release NATURALLY (it took about 15-18 minutes in my PC).
  • Add potatoes and carrots, give all a good stir.
  • Secure lid again and bring to HIGH pressure, cook veggies for 4 minutes.
  • Quickly release pressure (with quick release valve) and test carrots & potatoes for doneness (they should still be a bit too firm).
  • Add the green beans and give all a good stir. Secure lid and bring the PC up to LOW pressure, and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from stove, quick release pressure (with quick release valve), removed lid and give the stew a stir.
  • Carefully (very hot!) sample it, adjust seasonings to taste (I added a bit of salt).
  • If stew is too thick, add a bit of water to thin to desired consistency.
  • If stew is too thin, let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
